A major Milestone within the Puryear -Lutz family has been placed within our archives. The life of Robert Baker Jr. will no longer fulfill the love that he has shown to us. We will remember his laughter and the joy he applied while counseling us during our time of sorrow. Virginia Lee - Puryear and family sends their deepest sympathy during the loss of your loved one. 1st Corinthians 13 chapter 6 through the 8th versus reminds us about Roberts love. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protect, trust and preserves. Love will never fail. His love will always be remembered.
