"My love and thoughts to all the family. I remember Peter as nothing other than a charming lovely man, who was always pleased to see you, always interested in you, and always keen for a chat. His 99 years made the world a better place."

"I saw the notice by chance & let Annie & Jenny know.
Wow, what an innings. I remember so many occasions with your mum & dad. Your mum being my twin (same day birthdays & game of who ring first). And your dad, ever the gentleman kind & gentle & of course that signature laugh.
Great times growing up. Read girls & Simmonds boys.
My thoughts are with you all. Bron 💕"

"On behalf of my surviving siblings, Bruce and Jenny, I convey our condolences. Bruce has written from Alice Springs "a great effort by Peter Simmons. Always a calm, considerate gentleman. Maybe epitomised John Howard's 'relaxed and comfortable' maxim in spite of tough times. Went down like Don Bradman, a whisker short of the 100!" We feel that Peter's passing is the last of this generation, one that served us all so well to place us where we are today. Our thoughts to you all as another mighty Simmons is at peace."

Such an amazing and kind man as was your Mum. Many fun times with the Read family. So kind of your Dad to visit Mum when she was sick.
