I would like to extend my sympathy to the family of Mrs. Simpson. I am very thankful for the time Preacher and Mrs. Simpson were our spiritual leaders at Sandy Springs Baptist Church. When they first arrived at Sandy Springs, Mrs. Simpson said she did not sing or teach. She was always working behind the scene. We probably will never know all the things she did. I had never seen my father go to the alter until the Simpson's were with us. Our church was blessed during their years of service. After they moved back to their family home, I enjoyed taking the senior adults to meet for lunch with the Simpson's. We know she is better but it never makes it better for those of us left behind that miss her. May God give you comfort. Wincie Reavis
