Not sure what to say?

Mr. Baker you will be missed.
I thank you for being there for me from 6th grade till the day I married.
Thank you for guiding me down the right path. You were there when I felt completely alone. I thought I was in love in 6th grade and you said "Crystal look at that boy.. you don't want none of that mess!" I remember everything about you and everything you taught me.
My children know all about you and all you have done for me. Thank you Mr. Baker. I love you!

A good man who willnever be forgotten,and forever loved.

One of the sad things about a military career is that we lose touch with so many fine people we served with over the years. Bill sent me a note of congratulations in 1985 when I received my last promotion, we swapped Christmas cards ever since, and talked on the phone a couple of times. I knew him when we were stationed together at Davis Monthan AFB in Tucson in the late 1970's and early 1980's. For a while he was my supervisor and I'm sure his guidance was a positive force in my career....

To Lucy,and family may Wilbert, R.I.P. He was very kind in many respects. He looked out for many people old and young. He will truly be missed. Family Keep your hand in Gods hands and he will direct your path.

Be Blessed

My sincerest condolences to the Baker family, to your wife, your children and grandchildren. No words could describe the gratitude I will always have for having met you. You were a great mentor and the best teacher I could have come across growing up. I carry your words of wisdom forever. You will always be remembered for all that you had to offer and for all that you did. Thank you for your humility, for your humor, for your strictness, for your honesty and above all thank you for changing...

Mr. Baker was a mentor to me in his last year teaching. I was a brand new teacher right out of ASU and he helped me teach in one of the most challenging schools. I will remember him all my life and he helped me in many ways. He is AWESOME and I will always be thankful that I could call him a friend.

Our sincerest condolences to the Baker Family. Mr. Baker was a great teacher and taught me so much, mean and strict and times, but taught me a valuable lesson! He will be missed by many. I would always go back at visit him at Bethune Elementary School, I could never forget :)
-Student from Bethune!
