What a wonderful tribute to a truly great visionary.

Thank you, Paul, for your grace and intellect, and for making quite a few of us live easier lives.

I am sure Mr Baran will be missed,But rest assure,The almighty God of comfort has something in store for our loved ones. 2Cor.1:3&4 Atlanta,Ga.

Mr. Baran will be missed by family and friends. Know that the "God of comfort" is with you to provide the strength you need to get thru your pain.(2 Cor.1:4)

You deserved so much more for your thinking outside of the box. May you RIP
