Vernon  

Brave, courageous, kind, generous

Lover of Heidy, military, America

Who once wondered of moving from the train tracks

Who once said, “Where is home? Home is where the heart can laugh without shyness. Home is where the heart’s tears can dry at their own pace.”

Who felt passion, pride, honor

Who tried to fight cancer and the axis powers

But failed to win his fight with cancer

Who dreamed to win the war

Who made a difference then by fighting for our country

Who impacts our lives today by letting us live free

Who died due to cancer but is

Remembered for receiving a medal of honor for his bravery

Baker
