Sadden to read of the death of your loved one. As Numbers 23:19 reminds us - "God is not a mere man who tells lies, nor a son of man who changes his mind. When he says something, will he not do it? When he speaks, will he not carry it out?" Everything God has promised will come true, and he has promised that soon now, He will "swallow up death forever."(Isaiah 25:8.) Although your grief is heavy now, by means of the resurrection (John 5:28, 29) you will gain joy again!! My deepest sympathy to the family.

I offer my condolences to the Simmons family and friends. Nothing compares to the loss of a loved one in death. Even Jesus became deeply grieved and gave way to tears at the death of his friend Lazarus. Just as he awakened his friend at that time he has promised a more grand resurrection in the future. John 5:28,29 states, "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out... Rejoice in this priceless hope as you reflect on precious memories you made along the way.
