Last Picture Of Matt Baker and son Dezmond


Matt Baker and Dezmond--July 4, 2008

****************************************************************

This is a letter to Matt Baker following his death.
7/13/08

Matt,
You have touched so many peoples lives in so many wonderful ways, anyone who knew you will never forget you. You are such a special person.

We will never see your smile again.
We will never see you laugh again.
We will never see you hold your son again.
We will never see you play with Koda again.
We will never see you walk hand in hand with your son again.
We will never see you walking into our house again.
We will never see you at family gatherings again.
We will never hear you say hi Mom or Dad again.
We will never be able to help you with your problems again.
We will never see you drive by and wave again.
We will never be able to tell you goodbye again.
We will never see you on the computer again.
We can not even invite you to supper again.
There are so many things we will never be able to share again.
We will never be able to talk to you again.
We will never be able to hug you again.
You have no idea the pain and grief you have left us with, but we love you so much and never took the time to tell you.
We hope you can look down on us and guide us when we need help with Dezmond.
We love you,
Mom and Dad
Donna & Bill Baker

Donna and Bill...

I can't begin to imagine the pain you two are feeling.
I am so sorry for your loss.

I don't know if it is any comfort or not, but I will be praying for you both through this struggle.

Dear God,
Please heal these parents hurt. Wrap your arms around them and bring them peace and comfort.

YOU, God, are good, despite how broken and torn up this world is. We trust that You will bring healing to their hurt. Show them that You do love them, and You want to work good in their lives. Show them that they matter to You, and bring them a peace they can't understand or explain.

In Jesus Name,
Amen

Donna and Bill, my prayers for you will continue.
Again, I am so sorry for your loss, and if there is anything I can do, please email me.

Bill (Pepper) and Donna,
Matt will forever be in our hearts...I can remember all the times when I would be at your house having dinner with you and Matt, or when he and I would race our bikes up and down the hill.... boy he could always beat me, or just playing with trucks in the feild between our houses. These are times that I will always treasure now. You would never think that these little things would be some of the best memories of your childhood. This has been such a tragedy. You will be in my prayers.

Not to sound unkind, but can we not also show some sympathy to the family of the woman who was murdered?

Why would you post this letter? and why would the family give you this letter to post?? The picture sure, but I think the letter is uncalled for.

Betty you are in my prayers. I can't imagine what you are going thru. Everyone who worked with her and who knew her just loved her. Just keep looking at her son and you will see her every day.

Isn't there another victim here?

~In loving memory of Matthew David Baker~
A beautiful life that came to an end, he died as he lived, everyone's friend. In our hearts a memory will always be kept, of one we loved, and will never forget.

I miss you uncle Matt! You really were a great person and would do anything to help someone in need. You would even give the shirt off your back. I will cherish the memories of you and I forever. Please watch down on Dezy and keep him out of harms way. Be the strong guardian angel for the family as we struggle to get through this pain. I miss you and love you so much Uncle Matt!!
Love Always,
Jessica Lynn

Some people need to really realize that posting a letter on here is probably not intended to make anyone have mixed feelings about the matter. I think that letter is posted because like everyone else they want there own son to know how they feel about the fact that he left this world and they will never see him do the things mentioned in the letter above. Also as indicated in the other blogs people have mentioned about "isn't there another victim here" well yes there is another victim here if you just schroll up the page you will see there is a posting about the other victim and anyone can post there memories, thoughts, and prayers on cheri's blog as well as matt's. This tragedy is so sad as it is i just can't believe people have the guts to come on here and post such negative thoughts, when knowing these families are having a difficult time. My prayers and thoughts go out to both cheri and matt and there parents....

Matt's family is grieving and I do feel for their loss, but posting this is in very poor taste.

Cheri, and Dezmond, are the true victims of this tragedy. They did not cause, nor was it their decision to participate.

My most deepest sympathy to the familys. No one can replace or change what has happened. You all must focus on the future and most important, the well being and the care that there son will need.

Out of all the letters and notes, not one time has anyone mentioned your first responders. you all need to remember what your local fireman have had to go through. Those people deserve a world of thanks. One must as yourselves what would we do without them??????

all of you inconsiderate people that think posting matt's picture on here need to stop running your mouths and think for a minute. Put yourself in the Baker's shoes. How would you feel if you just lost your own son (or daughter) and had no clue it was coming, and knowing you couldnt control it or stop it. You would want him to know in so many ways how much you did care about them and love them right? Everyone needs to be fair and look at the big picture, yes someone else might have been taken with matt, but do you really know what has been going on the past 6 months?!?! Hmmm I didnt think so, but I do know. You should probably really grow up and keep your ignorant comments to yourself, unless you know all facts of both sides. Yes we all do miss matt and cheri so very much, but you cannot change the past. God makes the decisions in the world not us, so apparently this is what god wanted, two beautiful people to comfort him.
~Rest in peace Matt and Cheri~

There should be much more sympathy for Cheri... I do feel sorry for Matt's parents and other family and friends... But this is way to much.

It is such a shame...
He chose that, Not Cheri.
Rest in Peace *Matt & Cheri.... and as for Dezmond.. I give you, little man,,... the best of luck and support! I know that families of both your mom and dad will do their best to help out with your childhood...

For The one who wants to call everyone idiots because they don't know what is going on or what has been going on for the last 14 years.

a little advice to you.

People are not as stupid as you think, and the ones posting here know full well what was going on before, DURING and after this tragedy.

The best thing everyone can do is just drop all this posting, Because it is only going to get worse, and it is not going to accomplish anything.
