Pastor Isaiah Ellison, Lady Sherry Jackson-Ellison and The Summer Hill Baptist Church family express our condolences to our oldest Deacon, Northern Sims. Dea. Sims was loved and admired by all of Summer Hill and surrounding churches. We will miss him coming in 4 hours before church starts to make sure everything is running smoothly for when the congregations arrives. He loved his church, his wife and family and he loved the Lord. We will miss his singing, harmonica playing and gentle spirit. Praying God's peace for the Sims' family.
