Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the Shadow of the Almighty. I will say to The Lord. He is my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.
Psalm 91:1~2

Emma Jane Spicer Gummer, age 92 of Nashville, Tennessee passed away on Friday, December 26, 2014. She was born March 17, 1922 in Sheffield, Alabama to the late Ben Goodloe and Bessie Mai Spicer.

She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Raymond Gummer.

Emma Jane was loved by her family and friends, and just about everyone she met. She deeply touched those who knew her well. Her family and friends were always foremost in her heart and mind. Emma was a family historian, she knew family history and told it very well. She was an avid reader and knowledgeable of all aspects of sports, travel, and music.

She leaves to cherish her memory and carry on her zest for life, a host of nephews, nieces, cousins, and friends.

Life is but a stopping place, a pause and whats to be, a resting place along the road to sweet eternity. We all have different journeys, different paths along the way, we all were meant to learn some things, but never meant to stay. Our destination is a place far greater than we know, for some the journey is slow. And when the journey finally ends, well claim a great reward, and find an everlasting peace together with the Lord.
