Celebrating the life of Odis Benton Simmons
Thank you for signing Odis Benton Simmons's Guestbook
Our deepest and sincerest condolences to the family. Words alone can not ease the pain when grieving the loss of a love one. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away". May God give you and your family comfort in your loving memories and in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our loved ones in death and we will be able to see them again once they resurrected as per John 5:28-29. May these words give you a new hope, with deepest sympathy and warmth of heart.

I have fond memories of Odis in years past when I was afforded the opportunity to worship with him at Mount Carmel. He and Becky have been dear to our family. We loved him and love her still. My prayers are with the family.
