I remember the first time meeting Sis Sims, she had the sweetest spirit about her. She was telling me how much she loved Jesus. Her smile reminded me of my mother's smile. I enjoyed hearing her testimonies of Gods faithfulness in her life and enjoyed hearing her sing specials during song service. She loved God so much that it radiated from her. She will truly be missed by me, my family and her church family. Sis Sims started her race and ended her race in the arms of Jesus. Sis Sims, I have one last request, please say hi to mom for me in Heaven. Love you always, Bro Ronnie Byrnes
