    Dear Friends-

    I have written in many of my post a'bout great deals found at

    Simmons Sporting Goods
    2001- 2nd AVE North
    Bessemer, AL 35020
    PX: (205) 425-4720


    Well, I feel its my duty too report that one of the co-owners Mr. Barry
    Simmons, age 44 of the famed family was gravely injured in a one car
    MVA a'bout 2130 hrs on Oct. 13th, 06. Reports state that he suffered
    a brain anuersyum while driving his vechile to a friends house; causing
    the vechile too accelerate and veer widly out of control, striking a
    dirt culvert about 3' wide by 4.5' deep and finally embedding its-self
    into some huge boulders alongside the culvert.

    Its my understanding, that Barry is legally brain dead; either from the
    anuersyum or possibly the broken neck he suffered during the crash.
    Thankfully, no other persons were injured in this accident. The decision
    is too be made soon, as to cut off all life support as proper organ
    recipients are being located. Barry leaves behind a lovely wife (Gina)
    and a 1-1/2 year old son (Caleb).

    The Simmons family is known world-wide for their kindness, love, and
    generosity to everyone that they come in contact with. This family
    owned and operated business has strived here in the southeast since
    the early 1900's; with Barry's mother (Mrs. Betty Simmons) still an active
    partner in the business. I simply ask all of our faithful THR members to
    hit their knees tonight and ask that GOD speed too the Simmons family,
    and to bless each of them in this time of need. Respectfully, and many
    thanks to each of you, and may you too have a blessed day,

    Cruel irony, that being Friday the thirteenth and all.

    He has my prayers.

    Very sad to hear of this tragedy. Life is both precious and fragile - we all need to live it with gratitude.

    Prayers on the way. May God comfort his greiving family.

    Done.

    Thanks to Barry and his family for the willingness to donate his organs. If not for this kind of selflessness, I would have bought the farm a long time ago.

    Vaya con Dio. :(
