Sorry for your loss. May her memory be a blessing. I remember Aunt Loyce as a kind, hospitable lady whose life of service was an inspiration.

“Life means all that it ever meant.  It is the same as it ever was.  There is absolute and unbroken continuity.  What is this death but a negligible accident?  Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?  I am but waiting for you, for an interval,  somewhere very near,  just round the corner.” Henry Scott Holland A thought of comfort and condolences to the grieving family.

Mom Cummings, How thankful I am for being married to your son, David now for 48 and a half years, your strong, high Christian morals and standards, your deep understanding of the word of God, the Bible and the many family devotions and discussions on verses in the Bible, and your children's classes in Mexico that I have been privileged to hear and listen to and of course throughly enjoyed your talents of cooking and baking for your husband, Dad, Billy Cummings his favorite thing, (dessert) especially P-I-E that was shared around the table with all, with much laughter and conversations from your 10 amazing, multi-talented children and their spouses. You have always reminded me of Queen Elizabeth and have been a strong lady, very quick with answers and an excellent memory. So thankful we KNOW you are free from all pain, sorrow or suffering and with your Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, and with Dad Cummings, and many other loved ones and people and children you have led to the Lord. Say hello to my sweet Mom and Dad and both my sisters for me. Until then, With much love, Dianne Cummings and David PS David and Family are busy right now finalizing the last details for your visitation this evening, so I took this time to share my heart and memories of you. ❤ from David and I and our 3 Children, (Your grandchildren) Divina, Danette and David Jr and from our grandchildren, (your great Grandchildren) Sayde, Emma, Caleb, Dylan and Dalilah
