    Dear Barbara, Darrel, Wanda, Deralyn, Bernie & The sons of Shan Baggett,
    My deepest sympathies and prayers are with you all. I know that Barbara and the boys don’t know me but I went to school with Deralyn, Shan, and Bernie. I have known them since my first years in school all the way to graduation. Shan was not only an excellent basketball player, he was light-hearted and fun. Almost all the memories I have of Shan off the basketball court include laughing. I hope that he continued to laugh and love life to the end. I believe he probably made a pretty darn good father. I don’t know if Shan was elected most likely to succeed but after seeing the pictures on Deralyn’s FB page and reading his obituary I would have to say that he succeeded!!! God Bless you all today and the many hard days ahead of you!!!!!! In Christ’s love, Alica Gill Warren

  10. Don & Joanna McDonald September 18, 2012 at 9:45 am

    Praying and thinking if all if you today . Also remembering Shan when he was just a kid. Always a good boy and could be so funny when he got wound up. He will surely be missed by many. May God Bless each and everyone if you and give you extra strength at this time.

  11. Terry and Brenda Pletch September 18, 2012 at 9:47 am

    Dear Barbara, Jake and Sam,
    Words could never express how heartbroken we are for you. It’s a terrible heartache to have to endure when a loved one is gone too quickly and too soon. You will be in our prayers for strength in the coming days and months ahead of you. It will be a long road that only God can get you through and in those times of desperation just whisper, “Jesus, help me” and He will lift you up and your footsteps will disappear as He carries you in His arms.
    With much Love,
    Terry and Brenda

    Dear Deralyn – I am so sorry to hear of your brother’s death. I pray that God will bless you and keep you, that He will make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you, that He will lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace.
    Praying for you and your family at this sad time.

  13. Mark and Caron Johnson September 18, 2012 at 11:54 am

    We were shocked and saddened to hear of your loss. Mark especially can relate as his sister was just a bit younger than that when she passed away. Needless to say, our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time. We know that his parents and sisters will surround Shan’s wife and children with their love. We pray they will sense the loving arms of Jesus in the physical embrace of Darrel, Wanda, Deralyn and Bernie. We also pray for Darrel and Wanda–there is no grief greater for a parent than to lose a child, and for Bernie and Deralyn as they cope with the loss of a beloved brother. Even though we are separated by many miles, please know we are with you in Spirit as you go though the motions of continuing your lives in the weeks and months ahead. May you sense God’s sustaining grace in a marvelous way and find comfort in Him.
    Mark & Caron Johnson

    Darrel, Wanda, Deralyn and Bernie: I am so very heartbroken to hear about Shan. It seems like yesterday I was reading books to the kids and they were looking forward to being a teenager!! My sister Joyce was telling me they were talking about Shan on the radio there yesterday, remembering his high school basketball years. Barbara, I never got the pleasure to meet you and the children but know my thoughts and prayers are with you all. If he was half as good a husband and father as he was a child you had a precious jewel. Let God wrap his love around you all and his peace surround you. You all are in my prayers.
