About S. Baker's death.....I have a sadness for all who remember him as a foul man...hating him won't change a thing...prayer is my great consolation...the love and mercy of God is my hope...for abused self...for all victims...for those who committed these crimes...Is hate the answer? Love for all who have striven and still have sinned...I leave them all to God. I needed much help...and as a Catholic, it was a married Protestant clergyman who brought me out of the 'hiding' place of shame and self blame. Bless him.'Three Hail Marys' is nice but it was not what I really needed...Sorry Mary,. not your fault. All victims and abusers are in my daily prayer. Too ashamed to sign this.
