On Friday, December 11th, many friends, family, and two communities lost a very special wife, daughter, sister, niece, cousin, teacher, and friend.
Special friends are what make our hearts burst with pride, laughter, and belonging. They tell us with a smile that we are valued and loved. Those friends go above and beyond the call of friendship to reach out to others to make them feel the same compassion. They show devotion to any cause greater than themselves.
Jerri Cummings exuded life with her giving and servant nature. She sought to fight for light to shine on all of us regardless of any difference. Jerri was relentless in her drive to assist others. She sought to make sure every day needs were met for her students, any hearts that needed an ear, or any opportunity to show a warm smile, she gave.
It is with this remembrance in mind, that we take a moment to hug those that need a hug; serve those that need served; and indeed love those that need love. Bless you Jerri Cummings for this glorious roadmap. We will miss you.
