My condolences to the family of Steven Baker II. We can always rely on our Heavenly Father to provide comfort when dealing with the painful loss of a dear loved one. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4). Our loving God, Jehovah, has given us the wonderful assurance that we can see our loved ones again by means of a resurrection to an earth transformed into a beautiful paradise.

Meeting you and your brother at the ages of 12 and 10 was probably the best part of a young girls life. You were my best friend throughout many years and never forgot you. We both had married and raised wonderful families but I am an thankful everyday I found my best friend back after so many years apart. And you were there for me from when i broke my leg to everthing else in between. I love you and your family like you weremy own and I hope you are now at peace!
