Dad I miss you dearly, you left us without notice. I guess God wanted it that way. Because we had already lost so much I remember you songs and your stories. Dad please forgive me for arguing with you. It was the first time we ever had bad words. And then you was called home, before we could make up. I think about you always, I'm researching your stories. And I hope you are proud of me. My song to you was " The leader of the band" I miss you and love you. Your son

Mom, its been almost a year since you left us and there is not a day that goes by that we dont relive all the pain of the day we held you and watched you go... It was the hardest day of our lives...

Dear little brother
its been almost 14 years since that awful day that you ended your life, and its really never easier to say bye, but was very difficult to lose you at such a young age and to know that I would never see you again... Dad and Mom have now joined you, so now its your job to "look out for them, until we can all be together again... When you left us, you left so many unanswered questions as to why you took your life, and to this day, they are unanswered and the pain remains... I wish I could turn back time and prevent that day, but I cant... You left a void that no one can fill, and I just wanted to say you are loved and missed... Love your sister, Janet

It has been a year and a half since your vicious murder. I will never forget that day as long as I live. Your daughter Dara, is growing up so fast, and when I look at your son Jason, I see you. I know in my heart that you are in a much better place, but killed at age 35 is too young and not fair. You had your whole life ahead of you yet. I live everyday with the fact that I never got the chance to say goodbye or to tell you that you were loved very much. As long as I live I will never let anyone forget you or the great legacies you left behind. You will always be a hero in my eyes. I miss you more and more everyday. I love you Fred.

Our Loss is God's Gain

We walked into the prison slow,
With our hearts and our heads held low,
Our worst nightmare had come true,
A cop was killed while wearing blue,
And as the cops were passing by,
We saw the tears flow from there eyes.
The hurt and hate came within,
As S.O.G.'s job was to begin,
But as the time and days go by,
We too had a heart-felt cy,
We worked together day and night,
Side by side to make it right.
And when the job was all but done,
S.O.G. and Bayside stood as one.
So let us not forget our loss,
For the man who paid the highest cost.
And when it's time to leave this place,
Please ask God to show his grace.
Let's bow our heads and say a prayer,
And thank the Lord for being there.
But most of all remember this,
Officer Baker you'll be missed.

With utmost respect;
Bayside State Prison

S.C.O. Fred Baker #425

His Journey's Just Begun

Don't think of him as gone away-
his journey's just begun,
life holds so many facets--
this earth is only one.
Just think of him as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.
Think how he must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.
and think of him as living
in the harts of those he touched...
for nothing loved is ever lost--
and he was loved so much.

Love always, Mom and Dad

To my big brother S.C.O. Fred Baker who was killed in the line of duty on July 30, 1997. Your in my heart and mind every day. I went to Cold Springs and had a drink for you on St. Patrick's Day, it wasn't the same as when you where here. When we were growing up you were always my hero and protector. I know today that you are still watching over me. I will never forget you.

Love you always, Kelliann

Daddy, its been almost 6 years since you left and a year ago, mom joined you, its so hard being without the two of you here to turn to and to talk to or just say hi or "I love you". It's all the little things that everyone takes for granted that I miss the most... And would give almost anything to have back again... Daddy, please take care of Mom, and eddie, until "we" can all be together again... I miss you all so much, especially Mom... The day she left, she took a big part of me with her, and I will never feel whole or complete again, until the day that we are united again... I love you... Your daughter, Janet...

By Deb Williams, Arcanum, OH, USA
My mother has been gone almost 14 years (on Memorial Day), but her memory and the love for Jesus that she instilled in her children & others lives on forever. This is a poem that she left for us.

When I Must Leave You
When I must leave you for a little while,
Please do not grieve and shed wild tears,
And hug your sorrow to you through the years,
But start out bravely with a gallant smile;
And for my sake and in my name,
Live on and do all the things the same.
Feed not your loneliness on empty days,
But fill each waking hour in useful ways.
Reach out your hand in comfort and in cheer,
And I in turn will comfort you and hold you near;
And never, never be afraid to die,
For I am waiting for you in the sky!

I give thanks to the Lord Jesus Christ for giving me a mother that loved Him and wanted all of her children to know Him too!

Our grandfather was violently taken from us Jan. 31st, 1994 when he was shot and killed.
"Here it is year seven
That our Paw Billy went to Heaven
Among the angels we know you sleep
But in our eyes we do still weep
For everday you aren't here
In our hearts you remain dear
Eyes begin to fill tears
With thoughts of the wonderful years
We have spent this time in grief
Your death to our disbelief
To hold your hand just once more
Is something we do pray for
A loved one we had lost in anger
A man who never met a stranger
Time helps heal the hurting heart
Knowing it won't be forever we are apart."

She was my loving daughter. She has been gone now 7 ½ years and the pain is still great. My daughter was a good Christian girl who had a love of life and of people. She always had a smile ready to share with all. She loved her family, school, her Jr. High band, and God. She loved her cousin Shannon like a big sister who she looked up to. Ashley was killed in a car/train collision on May 12th 2000. 2 days before Mothers Day. I was driving the car. There is not a day that goes by that I don't cry about this and pray for peace.

Ashley Diane Bass, age 14, was a beloved cousin (sister) of mine. She shared her inner-most feelings with me and we shared many many good times. I work for a police department and she also showed a great interest in the field and its special program that I work with. She was taken away from our beloved family, and from under my wing, on May 12, 2000 as a result of the injuries she received in a train accident. She never knew what hit her, and I am thankful for that. She was such an important part of my life and I shall remember her always. Long live miss Ashley in our heart, memories, and our dreams.

We lost our Vada so suddenly! 12/19/97 started like any other day..... and ended with her gone. A massive heart attack took her to the Lord. We are trying to move forward, but it's with sadness and lonliness - because we cannot continue to enjoy her laughter and love. Her big smile and big hugs were her trademark. Her boys were crazy about her.... as was her Daugter-in-law.

We waited so long for you to come back home to So. California Vada, and we only had 16 months with you here. But I do know, and find some peace in the fact, that these were some of your happiest times.... finally being back home with your boys! We love and miss you Vada. Till me meet again......

You would be very proud of her if you were here. I do believe that you can "see" and (if I'm right) then you "ARE" proud of her! She looks just like you! I'm so sorry that you had to go so died for a reason..FOR YOUR COUNTRY!!
You are a hero Pete!

by Peggie Bouse

I sit here by this paper
As the tears absorb and soak
My mind and thoughts just wander
To the day your hearts broke

I know that its not easy
To pick up and start again
I know that it take time
Because I share your pain

A pain that tends to linger
A pain that tend to last
A pain that feels descructive
And never feels will pass

Please know that I am with you
In spirit and in mind
And when your pain is unbearable
Turn, look, I'm right behind...

Our children are our treasures
Our children are our gold
Think of them in Heaven
Under Our Lord's protective hold

To all parents left behind to pick up the pieces after a loss of their child, and when times are really hard please read John:14.... in my fathers house...

God saw you were getting tired,

we watched you fade away
our hearts were o so broken,
you fought so hard to stay.

I remember that awful day! My boyfriend came over to tell me that you were gone! The words will never leave my mind... "he's been killed in an awful car wreck" When he said those words it seemed so hollow and unbelieveable! I didn't know what to do first... Cry or fall completely apart. You were only sixteen! I didn't know how I was going to handle this or how exactally I was going to go on! I remember the wake so clearly...when I walked in all I saw was all of our friends crying and sitting there trying to be brave. I was fine until I saw you that is. I wanted to hear you tell a joke or just do something. But as I got closer to you in that line... I began to cry. but what kept me going was me thinking of all the good memories that we had together. I remember our science class and everything. I want you to remember that no matter what... we all still think of you everyday! And We are keeping your memory alive. We won the thanksgiving day game, and we have all picked our classes for our senior year! And I wanted to let you know that you are missed and remembered! I go and put flowers on your head stone every chance I get...but no matter what I will always think of you and so will everyone else! I know that your brothers and your parents think and miss you everyday! But they are doing okay! I just always know in my mind that you are up in heaven with my dad and my grandma and aunt! I know one day I will see you again! But until that day comes I will think of you everyday! And I will see you again eventually!

Cross Dennis E. Burkhardt II
By Diane Kiles, Highland, CA
My son Dennis was born and given as a blessing to me on June 21, 1985. Without the need of any ultrasound, I knew in my spirit that I was having a son and the Lord allowed me to see him in a visionary dream before his birth. My angel and eldest child, at the age of 19 years old, on November 16, 2004, at approximately 3:10 a.m. was watched by me and my husband…”dad” as Dennis referred to him, die in the prime of his life. Dennis was literally knocked out of his shoes when he was mowed down by a woman, driving a huge Astro Van and whose blood alcohol level was .17. I won’t spend the time speaking on the grief of how we are still awaiting this drunken driver to be legally held accountable for her horrible mistake. Mistake is the word I use now when I speak of my son’s murder. To call the act of the driver…the act that has altered me and my family’s entire life, a “mistake” can only be done through the forgiveness of the Comforter and the Lord God whom strengthens me. Hallelujah.

My tall and handsome son, Dennis, inherently could find the good in everyone. When you seemed sad or had a frown Dennis made it is “assignment” to make you smile. His eyes were bright and he had an electric smile that warmth the heart of everyone he was around.

It hurt me to see so so many young girl, boys, women, and men that loved and mourned the lost of my son; and, at that very time during his Going Home Service I was not physically, mentally or spiritually able to give them any words of encouragement, as me and my husband were trying so desperately to stand strong for his little brother and sister, now 10 and 7 years old. They adored their big brother as much as he adored them. Thank God son I still have so much of you alive living on through them. In my son’s life, there would be a few fleeting moments when I wondered about my sons comings and goings, especially with many of his older friends. However, I will never forget one young man, appearing to be about 5-6 years older than Dennis, stating, during the processions, that when him or others suggested doing things that were improper and/or wrong, that Dennis would not hesitate to indicate his unwillingness and could immediately suggest other things that was best for them all. I could feel this young man’s feelings were deeply genuine when he said that this was one of the main things he would miss most about his friend. Just as indicated on Dennis’ grave marker and what will always ring true…He was TOO LOVED TO EVER BE FORGOTTEN!!!

I've searched for understanding, every day that you've been gone, for only a brief moment we had you and then...
God called you home. I'd question why you had to go. If I lacked faith in his plan. But I know in my heart that you are more as an angel then you were meant to be as man.
The special ways you touched our lives, it wasn't the presence of you body we were to cherish. But the space in our hearts that you filled. Giving us memories and laughter to share as you gazed on happily from above. Bridging the distance and still trudging on, your soul longing to spare us from pain. For bodies expire but our love never dies. As the sun always shines through the rain, time will pass by and old wounds will heal but until we shall meet again...
Know that you always meant the world to me.

They would have loved you every bit as much as Seth and Ashlee. I know though that you are in a wonderful place, and that the lord has another beautiful angel with him.

Alvin, Wherever you are I know that you are looking down on Sammy, Cameron and Michael, and all your friends who miss you so much. You were the light of my life and you touched so many people. We will never forget you. Keep watch over your children, who keep you in their hearts and someday I will see you smile again! I Love You!

I lost my dear Mom April 6, I have felt so lost since her death. She was very ill for awhile so I know she has gone to a better place and is out of pain. She was 85 and had 13 children. I had this poem read at her funeral.

To Those I Love And Those Who Loves Me

When I'm gone, release me, let me go, you have so many things to see and do. You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears. Be happy that we had so many years. I gave you my love. You can only guess,how much you gave me in happiness. I thank you for the love you each have shown, but now it's time I traveled on alone. So Grieve awhile for me, If grieve you must. Then let your grief be comforted by trust. It's only awhile that we must part. So bless the memories within your heart. I won't be far away, for life goes on. So if you need me, call and I will hear though you can't see or touch me. I'll be near...And if you listen with your heart, you'll hear all of my love around you, soft and clear. And then, when you must come this way alone. I'll greet you with a smile and "WELCOME YOU HOME".
