A gracious and respectable person whose work has done so much to bring so much joy to many of us and made us aware of endless personal possibilities in these troubled times hard to deal with (2 Tim 3:1). Perhaps more will continue to have positive experiences from a wonderful work that has had many impactful contributions to life and its anxieties.

Sir your life's journey serves as an inspiration for the many of us who have chosen the same profession. The people who served before me taught me by word and deed that I must be better than the situation I find myself in and to not lose focus that I represent more than myself. Your sterling example both humbles me and fuels my desire to rise above the pettiness of the world. Thank you, Sir.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. (Matthew 5:4) May it be a source of inner strength to know that there's a loving God watching over you, and that, throughout this time of need, He'll stay close by your side.

To the Baker Family: I'm so sorru for your loss. This great African American man is someone we are all very very proud of!! He has lead the way for African American soldiers today to be great just like him. I'm proud to even have the chance to write something in his guest book. THANK YOU MR.BAKER FOR YOUR BRAVERY AND COURAGE!!!

As a current military spouse and Idaho native I weep for joy over such a wonderful example of how we should define ourselves as a people and as a military family. Vernon, may the Lord greet you with open arms and may your family be blessed with the comfort of knowing you have lived to see the world change for the better and that you helped directly in that change.
