My prayer is to be more like our sweet, beautiful Mother, Ruby Faye Cummins. She was our rock, the glue that held us all together! I was blessed to have Momma live with us for over 2 1/2 years. She loved Alaska but did admit that it was cold. She loved to sing and her favorite songs were the old time gospel classics. I can still hear her singing. You were beautiful inside and out. You are missed beyond words. You are my Sunshine and I love you to the moon and back!
