What can I say about Simone? For those who know her, just hearing her name will conjure up images of laughter and dancing down a beach and a fearless, try anything attitude. She is the most compassionate and caring woman I know. And WOW, can this lady cook a fierce meal! She's been my co-worker, my partner-in-crime, my roommate, my confidant, my pen-pal, and my stand-by-my-side-through-anything best friend. I am absolutely blessed to know this amazing soul.
