An elder to me, to many, he emerged as a caretaker for much more than those that resided in Baltimore, Maryland. From what I did know of him, he had certain strengths, shown as exceptional in his time. The consistent dedication to provide service to the people, and straightforwardly maintain the presence of a leader, thoughts of the Congressman are first of an enduring keystone in American life.

Although I never had the honor of meeting him in person, I do consider him a true friend of mine. I do not begrudge his journey home.

I SEND MY DEEPEST CONDOLENCES TO THE FAMILY OF CONGRESSMAN ELIJAH CUMMINGS:

I send my deepest sympathy and condolences to Maya, daughters, all family members and the all constituents of Baltimore.

I was immensely saddened by the passing of this giant of a man, Congressman Elijah Cummings!

Years ago, I meant this wonderful, caring, moving, motivated and strong-willed man that always exuded, Get involved, stay involved "There much work to be done here and get involved"

He was always giving his time to some cause on so many fronts and was always at Howard University and the hospital there!

Let us all continued to do the overwhelming work of this Icon of a man by giving a hand-up and not a handshake!

I give my love and great comforts to the family regarding this magnificent and electrifying spirit of a giant of a man, Congressman Cummings!

I'm honored and humbly grateful that God almighty allowed our paths to cross!

Gloriously, I shall always remember him! Congressman Elijah Cummings is in almighty God's magnificent house and surrounded by loving angels!

May God always comfort his wife, Maya, daughters, wonderful family, friends and all the constituents of Baltimore!

With deepest sympathy!

Rep Cummings inspired me every time he spoke. First I would like to send my deeply sincere love to Elijah's family and say thank you for sharing this great man with the country. I am a Kansas women of 65 years old and have live in the mid west my whole life. I am trying not to be sad on this day, but it's hard. In honor of Rep Elijah Cummings I promise to stand up for justice, speech out for equality for ALL God's people and try hard to be the best person I can be. I will miss Rep Cummings and remember him with respect and love. I only wish I could have met him and shook his hand and thanked him in person.

It was my distinct pleasure to have known and admired Elijah Cummings in my early years in the business and civic community of Baltimore. In the 80s, his reputation as a attorney led me to retain his legal services. My admiration grew as he advanced in his phenomenal political career. It was clear he was truly called to a public life of service and advocacy.

Those who knew Elijah know that our government, our country, and the city of Baltimore in particular, has been the better from his untiring commitment to the betterment of everyday people.

Elijah exhibited a spiritual foundation throughout his life. His public work should continue to serve as as incentive and inspiration to us all, especially those of us who know the pain of disenfranchisement and harbor the hope of true equality.

With a gift of compassionate communication, Elijahs contributions to our country will be long remembered. While we mourn the loss of his physical presence with us, his spirit of brotherhood and social justice, his manner of embracing everyone he met - no matter from whence they came - will continue to serve as a model for us all.

My prayer for his family is that they will find great comfort in the gift of Elijahs life, and be undergirded in their sorrow by his love and positive example.

In love and prayer,
Deborah Sterrett

The Morning of 1951, God gave the United States of America a man named Elijah Cummings, A man with a spirit of Love, Integrity, Honesty, Loyalty, Kindness, Vision and Faith. I have been inspired by his character to stand for righteous in the mist of adversary for many years. I have studied his Love and Passion, and unwavering loyalty and dedication for many years and I am sad as I grieve with the world now that a man who has had a major impacted on me and my family for many years is Resting now. May God Bless his Loving Wife & Family and May God give his perfect Grace and Peace to this family for many Days To Come. May God Bless America.

Mr. Cummings was a TRUE American Hero. He fought for the equal rights and application of the rule of law for ALL Americans, NOT just the fortunate few.
If I were charged with introducing someone from another world to Earth's best citizen, Mr. Cummings would have been "That Guy".
The dedication he showed over his lifetime to the underdogs is now a matter of history, and indisputable.
We were all blessed to have had him covering our backs for over a half century. The United States of America has lost one of it's most powerful voices, and we are a lesser place without him.
God's Speed, Mr. Cummings.

I don't know him personally and I'm not from Baltimore; but I loved him. He wore a pair of shoes hard to wear and hard to be filled. He is simply gonna be irreplaceable. Very sad loss for Baltimore.... He said what needed to be said with an authoritarian voice that got your attention and made you see the real issue at hand with love and meekness. He made me want to do more in my small community. We shared the same birthday and some of the same passions. I wish I had the opportunity to meet him. I would like to send a floral arrangement, attend the funeral and possibly meet his family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. "Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal."

It feels like I have lost a close relative. I was always impressed by the stalwart man of God when I lived in Maryland and felt that he represented me in Congress. Since relocating to South Carolina I even more aware of his integrity and concern for America. Men of his statue in government is hard to find.
