    our dear friend, never did we realize that the last time we kissed you and held your hand, just moments later you would get the whisper that it was time to come home. I know it would be selfish to ask that you stay. Because of that and the fact that we would rather see you smiling and making demands, in lieu of seeing the ravage that illness had taken on your body, we must accept this and say: we love you our friend and we WILL see you in the rapture

    Dearest Mrs. Simmons. I had the pleasure of meeting you just but a couple of times, but nonetheless, it was apparent where my dear friend Alana got her tenacity and her drive from, her manners and deportment from..You. I can see that you were an exemplary mother to her, and for that I thank you. I know you are enjoying your heavenly resting place in the Lord and smiling down on my dear friend, Rori and the rest of your beloved family...Mr. Simmons.

    We're sorry to hear about your recent loss. May you find strength from the words of Philippians 4:13 which says: "For all things I have the strength through the one who gives me power." What a loving God who cares about each one of us. He didn't intend for us to grow old and die. He thus has made the SURE promise of a resurrection right here on earth when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Psalms 37:9-11, 29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55;11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your loved ones? What a joy it will bring all of us. You can go online to JW.ORG and find out more about this resurrection.
