Dear Simon Family,
I would like to offer my sincere condolences. Few things can cause more stress or heartache than to lose someone we love to death. During such times, there is a thought from our loving Heavenly Father that has personally helped me to cope. He promises that his eyes are on the righteous, & his ears are toward those that call for help. (Ps. 34:15) Drawing comfort from him in prayer will help you to endure. My prayers are with your family during this difficult time.

It's God's Will And We Must Comply
By: Charles G. Turner, Sr.

Life is uncertain,
But as sure as we are born one day we must die
Sometimes we sit and wonder why
The fact is it's God's will and we must comply.

Throughout our lives we live through happiness and sadness
And many toils and strife
And when our earthly life is over we enter into our eternal life

Whenever a loved one or friend makes their earthly depart
It is natural for it to bring hurt and sorrow to our heart
And to deal with our loss we grieve, mourn, and cry
In all essence we must remember this is God's will
And we all must comply

For those of us that are left behind
We must cherish the special memories
And keep them all in mind
Just remember it is not for
us to question why we have to die
It's God's will and we all have to comply

May God Bless and comfort all of you

Thank you, Mr. Neil Simon, for the many laughs and feel-good memories from your wonderful plays and movies. In my lifetime, no one has matched your wit and understanding of love and relationships. I once had a chance to meet you in Ithaca, NY but decided not to bother you at your dining table. Not coming up to you and thanking you for the joy you've given to millions is something I'll always regret.

Sending my deepest condolences to your family, and may you forever rest in peace, Mr. Simon.

Heaven just gained a true gentleman and genius. God bless.

NEAL WAS A FANTASTIC WRITER WHO GAVE THE WORLD LAUGHTER. ONE OF HIS BEST WAS THE ODD COUPLE. NOW HE IS REUNITED WITH ALL THOSE GREAT ACTORS WHO BROUGHT FELIX AND OSCAR TO LIFE. WHAT A LOSS FOR HIS FAMILY, FRIENDS, AND ADMIRERS. JANE M.
