Beloved daughter and family of James Simmons is uniting to raise money for the final arrangements. James passed away on February 27, 2012.

James Edward "Big Jim" simmons was diagonosed with Osteosacoma (bone cancer) in October 2010. He underwent major surgery to remove the tumor in his leg. He also had his femur and tibia removed and replaced with artificial pieces.

James enjoyed the last year of his life. He enjoyed gardening, fresh fruits, vegetables and fishing. He appreciated the gifts of the earth and the simple things in life.

James underwent several different types of Chemo treatments and eventually radiation, none of which were any match for this agreesive childhood cancer that had progressed to the lungs.

In between Chemo sessions James enjoyed time with his family and friends. He lived at home on hospice for nearly 2 weeks, under the constant care of his loving daughter, beloved x-wife and devoted friend. His wish in dying was not to be cremated and to travel from his home in Maryland to his home in North Carolina to be laid to rest beside his parents.

Unfortunately, he did not have any life insurance.

James' daughter and caregiver is a single mother of 2 and now faced with the responsibility of handling his final arrangements. She delighted in being able to take care of her father and be with him during the final days and hours of his life. Please help her and the family with closure in finding peace in the midst of their lost by offering your support with a gift from your heart; towards the final arrangements for James, a father, a grandfather, a uncle, a brother and a friend. Thank you for your consideration and God bless you.
