Its really hard to see this, but im really glad you guys posted him up here. He was a good guy, and I had the pleasure of training with him in the academy. Had a lot of heart, and can't believe he had to go like this.

Baxter, we will miss you up here in IT. I know we joked a lot that you were always up in the IT department for problems with your MDC, but how I wish you would've been up here more, because you were always a pleasure to work with because of your friendly spirit and attitude. God Bless you and your family. Rest in peace my friend.
