Not sure what to say?

I am terribly sorry to hear about Mr. Baxter's passing. It was always such a joy running into him. Jane & family, you're in my prayers, always.

Our condolences to Mrs. Baxter, William, Beth, Colin, and Hannah on the loss of a wonderful husband, father, and grandfather and to scores of former students and colleagues on the loss of a wonderful professor, mentor, and friend. Dr. Baxter personified scholarship, conviction, integrity, and faith in ways memorable to all who knew him.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Dr. Baxter was one of my favorite professors when I was a student at King in the late 70's. I am so sorry to hear of his passing.

I am so sorry for your loss. I will be praying for you.

Dr. Baxter was a teacher and a mentor to me. He would praise when deserved but give a "swift kick in the pants" when deserved as well (in a thoughtful kind way). I was his work study for three years in the rat lab. I know the reason I am a psychology teacher has a lot to do with his influence. I am deeply saddened by his passing. Ms. Baxter, William, and Beth, please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

I have known Mr Baxter since I was a little child about the age of 5. I was very saddened when I heard of his passing. He is with God now and watching over his family. Mrs. Baxter Beth, William and all of the family are in my thoughts and prayer. Sorry I will not be able to attend the services.

Dear Jane & family
Please accept my deepest sympathy in the loss of your dear George. He touched all he knew & loved with his positivity and passion. We will keep his memory in our hearts.

Dr. Baxter lives on in the lives of those he touched.
