We were saddened to hear about the passing of Rev. Simpson.
I remember as teenager’s we would sometimes talk during his sermon and then we would notice everything was quiet. We would look up and Rev. Simpson would be standing at the pulpit just staring at us. He never had to say a word, that look, let us know we had done wrong.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

We were saddened to hear about Sarge’s passing. We were both very fond of him, even though the time we spent together was short. You will be in our prayers.
