    Brent just heard about your retirement. Wow, you will be missed. It was GREAT working with you to assist your Department in their initial accreditation endeavors. I wish you the best of luck in your retirement, waiting for the day I can do the same. Take care my friend!

    Congratulations on your retirement! We have spent many years working together and I have learned alot. Spend some quality time with Cindy and Jackson and enjoy new endeavors.

    Take care,

  17. I have not wanted to look at this page for some time, simply out of denial. I even dodged you the past few days to avoid having to sign for NCIC validations, hoping that if I refused, you couldn't leave. Cyndi informed me that my premise, while logical, did not support the ultimate, irrefutable conclusion.

    Thus, on your final working day, I sit here at my keyboard with a heavy heart and numb mind, and unwillingly acknowledge the end of an era. My selfishness aside, I wish you the best in your future endeavors.

    Live long and prosper, Capt. Baker. Live long and prosper.

  18. I put this off as long as possible, hoping it wasn't real. It sank in yesterday when I walked by your office and didn't see you on the phone frustrated with the latest Global flub :-)
    Thanks for all the laughs. It has been a pleasure getting to know you.
    Congratulations on your retirement
