"We were sitting here tonight: Terry, Mitchell, Andrew and myself. You came across our conversation as we discussed the dogs, your life and how you were a main part of everything. It is so hurtful to know we can't just call you, or see you, even just have you over for dinner. Time doesn't heal the wounds of the loss, it never gets easier."

"Larry, another year is about to come upon us. How are we to get through it knowing you won't be with us?  It's pretty hard when not a day goes by you aren't thought of, remembered through a memory, remembered from a photo.... You would never want us to dwell on it, this I know. However, You were a dear person to so many and I personally hope you are seeing all the hearts around you. We miss you so"

We miss him SO MUCH and especially now, with Christmas coming knowing he should be over here at our house watching football, telling the Redskins off for making a dumb move. Eating Ham and all the fixin's with us. HE is our Guardian Angel :))"

"As we sit here and the days tick by, we still can't believe you aren't going to walk in the door. Terry has a hard time with not being able to call you everyday, just see how you are. We would give anything to hear you fuss about someone in the world that has done wrong. Kim may say " You were NOTHING to my dad, Jackie " But we know the truth. Sometimes Those who weren't around don't. Miss you DAD"

"Larry, So many things have changed since you left us.Hurt has transformed into disbelief and all the while none of your children has truly taken into consideration your thoughts and your beliefs as you lived. It has been about THINGS, about possessions in their eyes.. WHen I knew you well enough to know that those were NOT your greatest treasures. Love & Family, those were your TRUE treasures."

"It's hard to put into words how good of a friend Larry was to me.  From the first time I met him at Chunky & Leigh's house until the last time I saw him, he was always kind and generous, until you got on a subject that riled him up.  Then you had better look out.  He could out debate most people I know.  I will forever miss having him as a friend.  Things will never be the same.  XOXO"

Maybe its us being selfish to want you back so bad knowing your in the HOUSE of GOD, but I guess we cant help it.

"Dad, we love you and miss you SO VERY MUCH!!!! I'm so glad that I was fortunate enough to marry into your family and be a BAKER forevermore. You were my father for 22 years of my life, although selfishly, I would love to see your smiling face and hear your boisterous laugh again, God has called you home to walk with him. I love you dad.
Jackie Baker"

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free
I'm following the path God laid for me
I took His hand when I heard Him call
I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day, to laugh,
to love, to work or play.
Tasks undone must stay that way
I've found that peace at the close of the day.

If parting has left a void, then fill it
with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah, yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish for you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savored much
Good friends, good times,
a loved one's touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all to brief,
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and share with me,
God wants me now, He set me free."
