To the Family of Boston Sims;

There isn’t any way to prepare for the loss of a family member. Suddenly, the loved one you had always turned to is gone. In the quiet moments when the hurt is hard to bear, may love become your shelter and may the beauty of memories become your comfort.

You have the condolences of the members of St. Paul’s A.M.E. Church as you make your way through this passage. It won’t be easy, but you can rely on the support of all your friends and church family. May you be filled with faith and hope even in the midst of inescapable grief, and find comfort in and with each other. Boston will be missed by everyone.

Words cannot adequately express our sympathy, but know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. Boston must have been a remarkable person. Just look around at his family and friends that are here to celebrate his life and his Home Going Service.

“Don't weep at my grave, for I am not there, 
I've a date with a butterfly to dance in the air.
I'll be singing in the sunshine, wild and free, 
Playing tag with the wind, while I'm waiting for thee.”


In His Service Always,


Rev. Alfred L. Thompson
And The Members of St. Paul’s A.M.E. Church
