I am still nauseated after finding out yesterday that one of our college friends died on Wednesday night. Simcox was one of Chris's fraternity brothers and was always fun to be around. We didn't really see each other very much anymore, even though he moved to the town right next to us. I hate that we don't see everyone more often and I hate that it's situations like this that remind us to call our friends. We have dealt with so much sickness and death in the last few months, but it is scarily surreal when it is someone that is the same age as you.
This is (Jim) Simcox and 4 month old Katie at our friend (Kyle) Scully's wedding in November 2005. Last night I was remembering how adorable he was with Katie at the wedding...he kept coming over to hold her a little bit more (who could blame him?) It was so cute to me because it was another side of Simcox to see him so enamored by a baby girl. I went searching and found this picture of the two of them together.
I'm not going to go into the details of what happened, but if you're interested, this is a link to the news story. I can't stop thinking about how scared he must have been. Jim, I hope you are at peace. We will miss you.
