Please accept my sympathy on the passing of David. I had not seen him for a long time, but I fondly remember visiting with my Mother at his parents house in Uxbridge.

Sorry for your loss. I recall many conversations with Philip. He was very proud of his clam chowder and even shared his recipe with me.

I had recently learned of Mr. Simmer's passing. Wanted to extend my condolences from afar. Remember fondly when we were kids your dad driving us to Saturday morning bowling in Grafton and also making sure we had great courts to play on whether it be basketball, your pool or that awesome whiffle ball field you had on the side of your house. Great man - always liked your dad. RIP

"Mr. S"

Thank you for allowing young Phil and his buddies to "hang" at your house on Friday nights when we were 17-ish, keeping us (relatively) out of trouble. I have many fond memories of those times... sleeping over in the living room, watching Caddyshack etc (again and again) till the wee hours, ping-pong matches in the garage, etc etc. All the while Mrs. S kept us laughing with her wit. Thank you for opening your hearts and home to us. It meant a lot. They are some of my fondest memories of those times. You done good, May you Rest In Peace.

You will be greatly missed, i wasn't "officially" part of the family, but for nearly 9 years you've made me feel as though i was. You will be very missed.

Love and condolences to the family.
