    To the Baker Family,
    I know losing Willie who is so dear is devastating, and no words can ever really relieve that pain. But to help, I wish you courage and healing during these toughest of days. Cry when you feel like it. Let the laughter roll when it comes. We had some great times when we were younger. Know that Willie will forever live on in the journeys we shared together at Trinity House of Prayer. I know he will be sorely missed
