Online Condolences for Dorothy Baker ( July 16, 1946 ~ December 25, 2017)

December 31, 2017
To the Family, I am so sorry for your loss. May the precious memories that you shared with Dorothy,bring you comfort. God "is close to the brokenhearted and He saves those who are crushed in spirit" May He strengthen you by means of His Word.(Psalm 34:18) — Donna H (, MD)

December 30, 2017
We wanted to share our condolences with Dorothy’s family. It is never easy to have to say goodbye to a loved one. The pain of loss can be unbearable. Our Creator promises us that one day this pain will be just a memory. That beautiful promise can be found at Revelation 21:3,4. Our pain and suffering will be a thing of the past, and we can cry tears of joy as we welcome back the ones that we love so much. We hope you find comfort in those promises. Robert & Marie Mile (Atlanta, GA)

DeDe was not only my sister-in-law but she was my friend. We became friends many years ago in college. We had many things in common one was my brother, Larry. She was a treasure to the Baker family in Virginia. Her southern hospitality will always be remembered because she welcomed us into her home and made each of us feel special. I was blessed to travel across the country with she and Larry two years ago, all the way from Virginia to Montana. She will surely be missed. My prayer is for God to wrap the family in His loving arms and to help them keep all the wonderful memories in their hearts. Kaye Shortt (Pound, VA)

"It is difficult to express my appreciation for the exceptionally kind and thoughtful attention we received.  It is no exaggeration to say that I (we) could not have done this without your guidance and direction."
