I knew Mr. Baxley for most of 20 years, first as his Primary Care Provider and later as a frequent acquaintance in the halls of Atlanta VAMC. We had a warm and caring relationship for all of that time and I will miss him greatly. Here's to you, true and faithful veteran and friend to all who met you.
