I only met Don once at a study visit, but we quickly realized we had been living steps apart for many, many years dating back to the years I lived in Springfield. I felt an instant bond to him. His kindness and sincerity were so apparent, as was his love for and pride in his family. I witnessed his bravery and selflessness in making a medical choice that had to do with the research study he was a part of. My condolences go to the Simkins family. I know Don will be missed, but always cherished and remembered.

I am so shocked and saddened to learn of Don's death. He was a wonderful, Godly man. I met Don while working at Wheeler Heart and Vascular Center when he came to pick up our daily deposits. His love for his family, God, gardening and life was always a joy to hear about. We shared gardening stories and pictures but mine paled in comparison! He was a wonderful man and I'm sure he will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

I remember playing hide and seek when our parents got together to play cards.
Then we saw each other at ball card shows.
Jo I'm so sorry for your loss.
