In memory of Curtis Simmonds

Curtis Simmonds

Curtis James Simmonds 9/19/76-1/27/09
Her little face crumbled as she absorbed the bad news, and she cried
Then she asked her mommy why her daddy had died
She was just five
And oh how he tried
But he couldn't hide
From the demons inside

She said the party couldn't begin until her daddy came through the door
She didn't understand she wouldn't see him anymore
She was just four

So young to introduce them to death and to dying
Too young to tell them how hard he'd been trying
How bad they are hurting if only he know
He was just thirty-two


This Memorial was created to commemorate a loved one's life and to let other families know they can turn to the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids for help when struggling with their son or daughter's substance use. Please consider sharing this page to increase awareness of substance use disorders and to provide hope and healing for others.
