We have lost another freeper, my friend, P7M13
me | 10-21-02 | WhyisaTexasgirlinPA

Posted on 10/21/2002 5:23:38 PM PDT by WhyisaTexasgirlinPA

I learned today that my friend, P7M13, Len Baker of Denver, Colorado, died last Thursday in an automobile accident.

He was an amazing man - his profile page was simple, stating:

Texas Aggie, Class of 1976, Graduated 4 years late, Ag Ed Major, Rode the horse, Wore the boots

He was a devout Christian, worked countless hours in his Church, a devoted father and a good friend.

He reminded me constantly to see things from the point of view of others, and I will miss him more than I can express.

I'm so sorry to hear this. Such a young man too. It's hard to lose a good friend.

I will keep both his family and you in my prayers.

Hey Tex, so sorry to hear about this.

We need all the Freepers we can get, so this is a loss for his family and friends as well as for this great country.

"Rode the horse, Wore the boots"

For a Texas gentleman, that's about as good as epitaphs get.

I'm so very sorry, Texas Girl.
My heart goes out to you and his family in this time of loss.

May God wrap him in His loving arms in the Place where there is no pain and no sorrow.

I'll join with Meek and bump the whole state of Texas, Texas Girl.

HATS OFF, TEXANS!

A fellow Texan, a brother in Christ, and a FRiend has passed on.
Let's honor his memory.

From a Longhorn/Cougar to an Aggie, Texans both:

Rest in Peace, you had to be a fine gentleman judging by the friends you left behind.

I couldn't say it any better than COB so let me repeat it. I'll grieve and pray with you. We certainly need more of these men here now.
