Regina King Simmons

I would like to express my deepest condolences to Ms Alfreda, Arthur,Shayla, Jasmine,Jada and family for the loss ArthurJr. I had the pleasure of meeting and knowing Jr for a short time by marriage to his father Arthur Sr. My memories of my marriage brought me happiness and one the
best memories would be meeting Arthur Jr and the children. Jr was kindhearted and respectful always. I will forever hold high regulars (respect) for him in my heart. Thank you Ms Alfreda for a fine human being you raised. I know this is a very sad time for you. Be very proud of your son and your grandchildren because of you. There are four beautiful and respectful human beings in side out. May the Lord bless and keep you all. I love you always !
