He always made my Allie Wilson feel like she was his little sister too. Lauren Simmons, you know you’ve had my heart since you were in elementary school. Greg Simmons, he loved you and respected you so much and while you were tough on him when he was younger he knew it was for his own good. He truly grew up to be one of the finest! My dear friend – Lindsay – you know I’ve got you. I’m here for all of it, every day, month and year. Wine, water, tears, hugs (or not), chats or silence. There are no words. My heart is completely shattered for all of you.”
