I have know Mrs. E. Sims all my life, she and her husband, Robert Sims were wonderful people. I was raised up in Morning Star Church, where my grandmother was a usher with Mrs. Ethel Sims. I remember when she had to take care of her daughter, autee , and one other person. She was a wonderful role model for children growing up at Morning Star Church. Mrs. E. Sims, tell Mr. Robert Sims I said hello. May you rest in peace.
God bless you

Auntie Ethel was one of the sweetest souls I've ever encountered, truly grateful to have known her during her 94yr journey. May the Lord grant her peace. An angel she certainly was.
