Farewell to Lana's Mom Shirley Angie Baker

Lana with her Mom Shirley
My Mom Shirley went to be with the Lord on June 22, 2014.  I miss her and think of her every day.  She was a retired US Army Command SGM E-9 .  During her service to our country she worked in JAG and many other positions during her 27 years.   Mom painted, sang, played the guitar and piano, canned the best relish ever, baked beautiful pastries, loved her beans and ham, and yes, cornbread to go with the beans.

The day she left me was one of the most painful experiences so far in life.  I thought my chest would burst from the pain.  I have hope because we both are believers in Jesus Christ and with that hope there is a joy inside that I will see her again one day.
