  1. Daisy, Momma Lottie, J.D. And The Entire Family Of “Uncle Son” “Sonny Boy,” Rev. Reuben Simmons, It Is Truly A Sad Occasion When One We Love Is Called From This Earthly Home To Their Eternal Resting Place. I Pray That The Life Sonny Boy Lived, And The Memories You Shared Will Bring You Peace And Comfort Now And Whenever You Think Of Him. I Am Glad I Got To Spend Some Time With Him And Share In His Humour And Joy Of Life. Psalm 121: 1-2 I Will Lift Up Mine Eyes Unto The Hills, From Whence Cometh My Help. My Help Cometh From The Lord, Which Made Heaven And Earth. Be Blessed And Be Encouraged!

  2. Miss Me, But Let Me Go When I Come To The End Of The Road, And The Sun Has Set For Me. I Want No Rites In A Gloom-Filled Room. Why Cry For A Soul Set Free? Miss Me A Little—But Not Too Long, And Not With Your Head Bowed Low. Remember The Love That Was Once Shared. Miss Me, But Let Me Go. For This Is A Journey We All Must Take, And Each Must Go Alone. It’S All A Part Of The Master’S Plan, A Step On The Road To Home. When You Are Lonely And Sick Of Heart, Go To The Friends We Know. Bear Your Sorrow In Good Deeds. Miss Me, But Let Me Go.

  3. I Send My Prayers To The Family As You Go Through This Difficult Time.
