Celebrating the Life of
Mr. Dwayne Shundell Baker

If all the world were mine to give I would give it, yes, and more To see you coming up the steps And walking through our door
To hear your voice, to see your smile To sit and talk with you awhile To be with you the same old way Would be our fondest day A heart ofgold stopped beating Two smiling eyes closed to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best. Anonymous

Dwayne's Legacy & Belief The race goes not to the swift, nor to the strong, but to the one who endureth until the end.
Ecclesiastes 9:11

Acknowloogments
Perhaps you sent comforting messages, Or came to pay a call;
Perhaps you sent beautiful flowers, If so, we saw them all.
Perhaps you prepared some tasty dish Or maybe furnished a car;
Perhaps you rendered a service unseen Near at home or afar.
Whatever you did to console the heart, By word or deed or touch;
Whatever was the kindly part, We thank you, oh so much.
Gratefully The family of Dwayne Baker
