My sympathy is with the Simmons family. God has shine down and bless uncle for 93 years. All the godly girts and talents God blessed him will continue to stand. It's been a longtime. But I'll never forget the sense a humor and kindness. God I pray you cover this family with your blood, and give them the strength. Until then God let's continue to do the work of the Lord and be a blessing to one another. I love y'all.
