Memories Timeline


  1. My condolences to Jack’s family. I’m not sure I’ve ever met a nicer man. He was very dedicated to St Paul Church and School and was always ready to serve others. The word “no” was not part of his vocabulary. He always said yes when someone asked for help. I will miss seeing him at church and around town but I will smile when I think about him asking Jesus “what needs done?”.

  2. May the love of God surround you and your family during this difficult time, May you come to know that the love of God is with you always, May your memories of John A. Cummings, give you peace, comfort and strength… Rest now in the arms of our Lord your mission on earth is complete. I thank you for your service to our Country and my Freedom. You will not be forgotten. My thoughts and prayers to the family of …. US Navy Veteran, John A. Cummings, is “A True American Hero” God Bless† † Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13 †
