Discussion: The Passing of Steve Simmons

My heart is broken right now. I have lost a dear, dear, friend in Steve. I have a void in my life that I cannot express in words. It was just a short time ago that Steve and I had a very precious four days together in my home during the Western Nationals in Colorado. Life is so fragile. I know that Steve is now with his God and at peace. I can only say to his family, Nancy, Melissa, Lane, and Dalton, I love you all very much and am here for you. May God wrap you all in his love and peace which only He can give. I will see you all in a few days.

Thank you all for your comments on Steve. Steve is in very, very, grave condition. It will take a miracle from God at this point. That is what we are praying for.

Thanks Taits. I know Mike well, super guy! We played Phiten in the pool play and lost to them by 1 run in 8 innings. We had a 8 run lead and couldn't hold them. Our team has been hit hard by injuries this year. One player with a broken neck, probably will never play again, another with a very bad leg injury, although will be back for Vegas, another with complete knee replacement, one playing now with a torn rotator cuff, two others with injuries that couldn't play. We beat El Paso 911's best of 3, 36-25 in 8 innings, lost 24-25, and then won in the final 20-15. They beat us in Las Vegas finals a couple of years ago, so we returned the favor.
All of this is pretty trivial when I think of Steve. There isn't a nicer man, and he loved softball.

FasTs, do you know of anyone that will be 65 in 2013 looking for a good AA team? We just won the Western Nationals in Colorado. If so, let me know. 303-437-5340.
We could use as many as 3 players because we have players moving to the 70 age group after Vegas. Thank you.

Discussion: Update on Steven Simmons

The latest update on Steven this morning from Melissa, his daughter, is they straightened Steven's spine last night and removed the bone from the spinal cord. He has a break in the C2 vertebrae, but the bone did not completely sever the spinal cord. They did a CT scan, but they can't see much because of the halo that he is in. They are now reducing the sedatives as I write this so they can do a neurological exam today. We continue to pray for his complete recovery.
A good site to go on for complete updates is CaringBridge.com There you can register and write your personal thoughts to Steven and his family.

Discussion: Please pray for Steve Simmons

In my haste to write this, I wanted to say that Steve plays for Prize Company out of Mn. My name is DuWayne Pillard and I have known Steven since 1972. He stayed at my house during the Western Nationals that was just played in Aurora, Co. this past weekend. Many of you know Steve and I know that you would want to know this.

Discussion: Please pray for Steve Simmons

Steve Simmons from Minnesota, Prize Company, was critically injured Thursday in a boating accident. He was given CPR for 45 minutes and revivied. Steven was vacationing with his grandchildren and family back in Rhode Island when the accident occured. He was thrown from the boat when it hit a sandbar and was taken to a hospital in Providence, R.I. He has had a heart attack and a bone hit the spinal cord in his neck was broken. He is in the intensive care ward at this time. The good news is that he is responsive and they think there is no brain injury. I do not have any other details at this time. He needs our prayers, so please pray for him and his family. Anyone that knows Steve knows he is a fighter, and one of the nicest players and best hitters in senior softball. I will give more details as they come available. Steve is a national director with SSUSA.

Discussion: Sad day for the Pace Electronics Family

I am so sorry for your loss of Mr. Kehoe. I never knew him, but what a model we should all use when we play softball and in life!
I, to, am thankful every time I step on the field and play.
Life is just a vapor and can be gone so quickly. My prayers and thoughts are with his family and friends.
