Baldwin family, I was so sorry to read about the sudden loss of your dear loved one. Something I have found to be of great comfort are the words of Jesus at John 5: 28 & 29 where he said do not be amazed at this the hour is coming when all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out. This was God's original purpose what a wonderful day that will be for you and your family. May the love of family and friends carry you through your grief.

Donita Dec 25 2015 12:00 AM

Harry, Jodi, and Brooke, We are so sorry for the loss of your son/brother. We pray that God gives you the comfort you need to carry you through this and any days ahead that you find unbearable to get through. I pray the memories he left behind give you something to cherish and can eventually put a smile back on your face. We will be praying for you.
