This blog post is an exception to my rule to write about the history of the Michael McCormack family. I am writing about a friend of mine, at least I hope she is, and a blog post that she wrote recently. My friend’s name is Michele Simmons Lewis and her genealogy/family history blog is Ancestoring.
The particular post that I am referring everyone to is CSM William Perry Simmons (1933-2015). Why am I referring people to this post and blog? Because it encapsulates everything that I would like to write about in my blog. In this post, Michele tells some stories about her late uncle, William Perry Simmons, a Command Sergeant Major in the U.S. Army. It is full of love and reverence qualities that I hope that I can write about in my own blog posts about Michael’s extended family. It adds a little bit of flavor to someone’s history that can be sometimes just a bunch of cold facts and documents.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone enjoys Michele’s heartfelt post about her uncle as much I did.
