Condolences to the Simmons family. I pray God comforts the family during this time of bereavement. May the many cherished and loving memories of Frances comfort her family and friends. A comforting thought to keep in mind is at Isaiah 25:8 "He (God) will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces." The family is in my prayers.
