DORIS SMOOTSFor the Sims Family,
You have my Love and Prayers for your whole family. Your husband, and father will be sorely missed by us all. I'm am praying for you all for God to keep you wrapped in his ever loving arms and give you the peace and strength you will need to endure this sorrowful time. God is Good All the Time. I'm glad to know God's Got You All Covered. Love You and let me know what I can do. If you need to talk or Hugs I got plenty for you. Doris Ross Smoots, NC
Sharon and Charles CurleCharlie and I sure have many fond memories of good times with Cousin Louie. Some of the fondest memories are fishing together (of course). He always showed a lot of love us as we were growing up. We will miss him and we are thinking of you and praying for you during this time.
Cousin Jim MartinA Husband-Man, A Daddy-Man, A Family-Man, A Good-Man. Cousin Louie Is All That and More. It's amazing what comes to mind in a time like this, but all I can think about right now, is the times the family gathered with the church-family after sunday services at Allen Extension Park where we had good food, good recreational sports and good communion with God, Nature and Loved ones in combination and always Cousin Louie was one of the key figures among the men. He is a man to be looked up to, to be emmulated and to be imitated. I won't say rest in peace, because we know, "To be Absent from the Body, Is to be Present with the Lord" and I doubt if it's during sleep. I will say however, my wonderful cousin, Thank You for all you taught me and us and Thank You for deciding to be a part of our Family, See You Soon, Love Cousin Jimi
