|Let the memory of ISHA SIMMONS be with us forever|
"November 1, 2015 was one to remember, it was a milestone like no other, you had conquered a stroke, and days before wrapped up a paper to make sure you earned your right to that Master’s degree. The family, friends and coworkers gathered on your behalf at your graduation, far outnumbered other grandaunt support. Your strength to go on and to conquer all stumbling blocks was a memory we wanted front seat to. You would have been 41 on November 1, 2016, and though it is seven month plus later and the wound still seems fresh; your presence was not just another face to many. It was an inspiration to some, a rain check on reality and much laughter brought on by brutal honesty. November 1, 1975 we are most grateful for, November 1, 2015 we will never forget, November 1, 2016 and other November’s in our lifetimes we will forever treasure. As we celebrate ISHA. Rest on. At peace you are."
"Sending happy birthday wishes to a beautiful soul that is resting in peace...a toast to the sweet memories you've left with all who knew you, Isha...gone but not forgotten"

I think of you often. Especially when I drive by places you lived. Or heard a a song we all listened to back in the day, or just because I miss my beautiful, loving, caring, compassionate friend.
I know all is well as your with our Lord and savior. I love you!
"Will truly be missed. Rest In Peace my dear"
"The 93-95 group of the St. Vincent Technical College wishes to thank all who supported Isha's family, especially our very own Joanna, for the wonderful going home service of our dear friend Isha.

"Isha was indeed a person with a warm smile and beautiful personality. She was someone who encourages despite the pain she was enduring during her last days on this earth. I really can't believe you are gone but Jesus knows best. Sleep on my friend until that great resurrection day."
"Isha is my darling friend. I've known her for many many years. We are girls for life, Moashella, Tammie, Isha and me. Always connected, always loved. I was at her beautiful funeral today and it was hard, sad, exhausting and i felt physically ill by the end of it all. But i had to pour my heart out and weep for you. I am emotional and seeped with those around me. I am Blessed and divinely favored to have had Isha in my life. I miss you my darling and I will see you when I get to Heaven. Love you forever and always. Erin Xoxoxoxox"
"I have always been thankful for being part of the st. Vincent technical college during the years 1993 through 1995. For it is that time I have met some of the most courageous friends. Isha, you were part of our lives and the last few months have been amazing. We laughed and share fond memories. I will miss you for being the first to respond to our daily group chat. God has blessed us with your presence and have decided to take you to a much better place. May your family finds comfort in knowing that you are at peace. Love you always"
"An absolutely amazing person. She will be dearly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her."
"Even though she's no longer with us in person, there'll always be a special place reserved inside our hearts for Isha. From there we can draw on the happy memories we were fortunate to have of her while she lived life on earth. I am thankful that I was given the chance to reconnect with her through our SVGTEC chat group. Isha bought love, life and laughter to our chats even while she was enduring pain. She maintained her faith to the end. May her reward in heaven be great."
"You touched so many lives Isha. I know you'll be doing Zumba with us in heaven. xoxo"
"will always love you Isha"
"Gone from us that smiling face,
The cheerful pleasant ways,
The heart that won so many friends,
In bygones, happy days.
A life made beautiful by kindly deeds,
A helping hand to others needs,
To a beautiful life comes a happy end
She died as she lived, everyone's friend.
R.I.P Isha Simmons"
"Thrilled to reconnect with Isha and all my SVTEC 93 - 95 classmates, I never imagined we would be saying goodbye to one of our own so soon. Isha was among the first friends I made at college. My sister's work colleague referred to us as the perfect 10:). I hoped to see you again, to hear you say Cetta oye, to laugh and just chat. I wish time didn't separate us for so long but, I am happy to have had you back again for the past few months. Forever in my heart. Sleep on dear friend."
"It is with great sadness that I write here today on the passing of Isha. God has received an angel.
Rest In Paradise
Thoughts go out to family and friends."

My dear friend-I really cant believe that I am here writing a tribute for you, its taken me a while to pull myself together to do this.
I am in complete disbelief and filled with total sadness
Little did I know that the mutant protein attacking your heart would finally take you away from this Earth.
You were such a positive and strong fighter I must say. I learnt soo much from you and your inspiring faith, always believed in God
Am soo heart broken but I know you are in a safer place.
Am glad distance never separated our friendship, I last saw you four years ago in Halifax yet we chatted every other week for hours on whatssup like we were sitting next to each other.
What a true friend you were, down to Earth!
Am sorry I was not there with you physically during your last days here on Earth but just know like you always knew that I was there spiritually with you and would have been there to spend time with you, chat with you
Love you lots my friend till we meet again.
My condolences to the Simmons Family-may God give you the strength as you go through this tough time"
"I remember the last time I saw Isha. I was very sad, grieving the loss of my dad. Isha knew when I would come for lunch at The Reef, I would get the Rum and Raisin Ice Cream. She brought me over a bowl and gave me her big smile and laughed. She said " I know how much you love this, I hope this cheers you up" She was always so sweet.
Tia Joan and Family: "Faith is taking the first step even when we don't see the whole staircase." I believe Isha will be met by loving arms gone before her. Till me meet again...xoxo.....Janet Wallace Ollivierre"

"Upon my first time ever meeting Isha...my face hurt so much from laughter. She was a great storytellor, and she was an absolute delight to be around. Her presence at our sister to sister prayer meetings was an added highlight next to the presence of the Holy Spirit. Isha, will be missed by those who's hearts she touched.

"Isha you had a special cheer and joy that always made me smile. May you rest in peace."
"Isha was a fantastic person. RIP sweet Isha"
"I remember this long hair, left handed, dimpled face, plump and delightful girl, Isha. Isha was all smiles but somehow she was tough too...She was the girl you could joke with but still respected. I remember her chatting with Cleon and Andre. I remember lots of laughs as we stood by the guys classroom door during break or lunchtime. I haven't seen her since the 90s but I am still sad that the world is now void of this amazing woman. Time to time I saw the call to pray her through and I've prayed but God choose to take her home away from pain. Isha you were greatly loved and are sadly missed...RIP Dimpled Angel"
"As U embark on a new journey on the spiritual realm.... as U encounter friendly spirits & familiar faces gone before U....Know that we, your friends & family would daily miss U from this physical realm. xox Isha...Till we meet again RIP :)"
"I am in complete disbelief and filled with sadness, but I am also happy because Isha Simmons was my mentor, confidant, and great friend. She always believed in me and shared valuable life lessons with me. Humility is her middle name and Kindness is her last name. Above all, Love is all she gave me and I'll always keep that with me. I love you Isha and I'll carry you with me. I promise to make you proud and carry on your baton. The advice you gave me when we talked for 2 hrs, many times, I will follow through. I miss you. <3 RIP"
"Your bubbly personality was contagious. You were always so happy, so spirited. May the gates of heaven open for you. Lord grant comfort and peace to her family who mourn and may her life teach us all, that in the end all that matters, would have been the lives we were able to touch with our own. May you rest in peace ISHA.

"Isha, you go in peace knowing that you have done the duty God set before you. You have been an inspiration, a friend, a confidante, a shoulder, a sister, a heart and most importantly, an angel on loan to so many people! I can imagine God saying "come my child in whom I am well pleased"!"
"You have been a bright and shining light in our lives. Your smile, your laugher, your singing and so many other things are going to be missed.

"God just has a way of doing things. I thank him for loaning Isha to us. Isha brought me lots of joy and I am extremely grateful for meeting her in October 1993.
Our more than regular group chats indicated that she loved us all. I do hope she felt that she was loved too. Any delayed response from her sparked questions. She has now gone to a place where pain and uncertainity will be no more. May she rest in peace
@svgtecclassof93-95 be strong. I love you all."
"Didn't know Isha personally but I know both her parents. My condolences to the Simmons family. Psalm 23"
"I didn't see Isha enough and when you hear about something like this you can't help but feel shame. Why didn't I try harder? She was such a beautiful lady inside and out and I could've spent so much time with her, you will be on my heart forever Darlin. Until we meet again :("
"20 years after we part ways from college our lives were reconnected. Grateful for that opportunity. The last five or so months was magical
We sing, laugh, cry, preach, uplift, encourage and was their when you just needed that upliftment. You were always the bubbly one, so cheerful and hopeful. A free spirit and strong will
Heaven has chosen a precious angel
Sad to see you go but happy you are in the saviour hands
May your family be comforted in this difficult time."

I know you were in pain these past weeks but you never let on, you just stayed true to yourself and found the most positive way to share your situation. I am thankful that I got to communicate with you the day before you entered eternal rest. Keep smiling down on us Isha!"
