Dear Cummings Family,

I was so very sorry to learn of the loss of your son, grandson, and nephew. In my much younger days, I babysat for Sean and Brent fairly often and they were always some of my favorites! I am sure James Douglas was just as dear as his father and uncle and his wonderful grandparents, who trusted me enough to watch over their boys. I will always remember your family and I am surely thinking of you now, during such a sad time. Very sincerely, Nancy Marshall Berry
