Your country misses you, sir.
Proof again, only the good die young.
Me? I am devastated. 😪
I am heartbroken.
While we slept, we lost one of the most courageous and honorable leaders in Congress.
The Honorable Congressman Elijah Cummings has passed.
He will be sorely missed.
Deepest, most heartfelt condolences to his family. And US.

We lost a true American patriot today in Rep Elijah Cummings. His decades of service to the American people will never be forgotten. He is a true American hero who will be dearly missed. A freedom fighter and true American hero. Rest in Power, and Rest In Peace.
