    Dear Simmons Family, I want to express my condolences. Almighty God is aware of the pain we experience when we lose a love one therefore, God provides comfort in the Bible at 2Corinthians 1:3-4. God states a positive hope for the future on earth at Revelation 21:3-5. May these scriptures comfort your family and friends.
