IN MEMORY OF DAVID WALLACE BAKER

To my cousin DAVID WALLACE BAKER, to a strong willed person, one who did not back down from a fight. Who stood up for the truth of which he believed in in his heart to be right at the time. A defender of the weak, with a strong background in God and Country.

For these reasons you joined the Marine Corps, the rough and tumble life fit you well. You answered the clarion call, and when sent to Vietnam, you did more than your duty; o'David you laid down your life for your country. Even though I write this soliloquy, for once you were a combat soldier, though you were scared you did not run, for once you were a combat soldier, for by God you were a Marine! Go o' David, go and take what you have fought so long and hard to get. Take hold of your eternal life, as the golden rays of the setting sun light up all eternity, go o' David, to rest in Peace in the golden light of eternal Love that shall be with you for now and forever more!

I LOVE YOU, DAVID.

Your cousin, Greg Payne
