Not sure what to say?

Mona...prayers going your way, to you and to your family. Though I never met him, I knew from your stories at BOC he was a special person and very much loved by you. God bless you all.

May the God of all comfort strengthen the entire family during this time of sorrow. Those who die God keeps in his memory because they are precious in his eyes. (Psalms 116:15) My sincerest sympathy.

Mona, I was so very sorry to hear of your loss. Vern sounds like a wonderful man, from all you've said, and from reading his obituary. I am thinking of you, and praying for you and your family. Nancy (your friend at BOC volunteering)

I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to all of the Baker family. I was fortunate to have started my career under Mr. Baker and couldn't have had a more supporting and understanding person to work under. I've thought about him many times throughout my life and am thankful for the time he was my supt./principal. Again, my condolences to all his family.

Mona and family
I send my condolences. Vern was a wonderful boss and man. He always was just and stood up for all.

What a wrenching loss for your family. I really can't believe he is gone. I am so very sorry for your loss but so very grateful you had him in your lives. How wonderful to be able to have called him Grandfather, Dad or Husband. such a special man. God bless you all.

What a huge loss to this amazing family. Our hearts our broken. Bill and Bonnie McCarthy
