November 27, 2004. Remarks by Mick Gladwin: "It is with sadness I am informing you that Mr. Eric Simms, a close
friend for the past 16 years, died in his sleep Monday November 22. I will miss the way in which we would talk about
history and the Royal Air Force, he from the WW II period and myself from the modern period. I was grateful to hear his
stories and see the photos he had collected."
