  1. In Loving Memory

    Those we love don’t go away
    They walk beside us everyday.
    Unseen, Unheard, but always Near
    Still Loved, Still Missed, and Very Dear.

    Love always,

  2. Remembering all the great moments we shared and our sons being born the same year. We will never forget the joy and laughter you brought into our lives. May our father in heaven continue to comfort those you’ve left behind!

  3. Though I didn’t know you, Miles is such a smart, outspoken, and caring person. Clearly you did a great job. I’m sorry you passed so soon. Rest in paradise.

  4. I will always remember our good times, sharing food and your laughter. You are missed. Loved your smile. Rest in Peace, my friend.

  5. I’ll miss our good times, laughter and sharing pork rinds. You are missed. Loved your smile. Rest in Peace, my friend.
    Much love

  6. I thought of you with love today
    but that is nothing new
    I thought about you yesterday
    and days before that too,
    I think of you in silence
    …I often speak your name
    All I have are memories
    and your picture in a frame
    Your memory is my keepsake
    with which I’ll never part
    God has you in His keeping
    I have you in my heart.

  7. Barron was a co-worker of mine for MANY years. I offer my condolences to his family and friends and please know that he will be sadly missed by all.

  8. Daddy,

    Words can’t express the pain I feel in my heart now that you are gone. There’s not a day that goes by where you are not on my mind. Sometimes I hear your voice in my head that it hurts. Although you are not here with me physically I know you still walk along side me. I know your spirit is within me, I feel it everyday. But don’t worry daddy, I will keep those good memories and spirit of you alive, I promise. I love you forever.

  9. My condolences to Barron’s family . I worked with Baron for many years and can say he always found a way to make me laugh . It was a pleasure to know him and to work with him . He will be missed .

  10. My Dear Son … The bond between a mother and child begins at conception and never dies. The bond with each child is special and unique. I have felt your pains and sorrows through your last days. Words can not express my heartache over losing you. A part of me has gone with you. I shall forever cherish the memories that we shared. The laughter, the mom/son conversations, the special holiday dishes prepared just for you and your desire for mom to clip your toe nails. Forever in my heart until we meet again. Rest in love. Love Mom

  11. Lorraine, Miles, and Vanessa:
    Cherish all the precious memories. They will help you through your most difficult hours. Reflect on the good days, the wonderful times you shared, and keep the faith, for the sun will shine again, someday. Blessings to you and your family. Margie Lovett-Scott

  12. Lorraine, Vanessa, Miles,
    I am extremely sad for your loss. I am also proud of you all, and I know Baron would definitely want you to continue on with the legacy he has contributed your family.
    I appreciate that he has always made me feel welcomed. He and I had a weird sense of humor, and he enveloped my quirkiness. I would jokingly tell him to pack his bags because I was taking him home with me from Lorraine, and he would always be ready. I know for a fact that he loved his family, children, and grandson immensely.
    Baron you may have left too soon, but I am glad to have been able to experience a corner of your love, life, and family…I promise you that I will never forget you, or the fact that you like sweet potato pie with pineapples, and are allergic to shrimp (he had to constantly remind me).
    You are free now, Tami

  13. Rejoice in Heaven Eternally in the Presence of our Infinite, Holy, Merciful, Loving Risen Savior, Good and Faithful Servant, Barron🌅🙏🏻

  14. Barron,
    I can’t even begin to express how much you are missed. I want you to know you were loved when you were here with us and you are still loved even though you are gone. I wake up each morning waiting for your phone call and hearing your voice saying, “hey how’s it going?” I am incredibly sad but I hope whatever pain you were in is now eased and you are at peace. I promise to keep pushing and supporting our kids in whatever they do. Moving Miles to NC at the end of this summer and watching Vee graduate next May is going to be incredibly hard without you. But don’t worry, you taught Vee to be a road dog just like you. Your presence will be missed, but we got this because we know that you are watching over us. I will love you always

  15. Hazel, Lorraine and Family,
    My sincerest condolences to you in your loss of Barron. He always had a humor and pleasant personality whenever you were around him. Cherish your memories that you’ll carry forever in your heart and may God bless you with comfort and strength. Rest In Paradise Barron..
    Shenna Logan

  16. Barron,
    You were always a son to me as I told you many times. You always took care of my car and when I needed to move in with you and my daughter you welcomed me with open arms. I enjoyed talking to you although many times I just listened because you needed someone to talk to. I miss you and you will always have a special place in my heart. I love you. Mom(Gilda)

  17. My Friend
    Barron it is still had to believe you are not here with us anymore. I still remember the first day we met. Over 30 years ago. You did a great job raising your kids. And they will continue to make you proud. So Mad dog as we called you. Rest in peace and tell little Anthony you got his back up there in heaven….
    R.I.P.. Anthony Brown

  19. Praying for you, Lorraine, Vanessa, & Miles. May God give you peace and comfort as you go through this difficult time. Barron was a bundle of energy and had a great smile 😊. Love you. Audrey

  20. Hey Barron,
    Just wanted to know that I’ll miss your random calls to say that you loved me. You were my unofficial brother-in-law and I loved you. I’ll also miss your energy, like me, you were always keeping busy, going a 100 mph. Thanks again for letting me assist you when you installed my dining room chandelier and my kitchen fan. I’ll always remember that Xmas that Lorraine had to work and you had to hold it down until she got off later that evening. You told Lorraine to not too work on Xmas again, lol. You did good though! I remember back when you drove Cadillacs and when you and Lorraine started dating again in the 90s. Lots of good memories, now you and my dad can kick back. With neverending love brother-in-law and when I make my cheesecake on Xmas I’ll remember you too, because you loved my cheesecake. When I do decide to hit 100 in my Vette I know that you’ll be watching. Love ya…

  24. Barron,
    Today is so hard for us. We miss you so, so much. There is always this emptiness we all feel and can’t seem to fill. But we each have our private memories of you that we will always cherish and keep alive.
    Always missing you,

  25. Daddy,

    You don’t know how much I miss you. My birthday was so hard because it marked 4 months since you were gone. If I could give anything to hear that “Hello gorgeous happy birthday!”again, I really would. The holidays are coming up and already it doesn’t feel right without you, and it never will. I was debating whether I was gonna push through school or take sometime off but I am still doing it daddy. I got 6 more months daddy! And then ill be Vanessa M Perry RN, MS, PNP and maybe it will have a “Dr.” in front of it in the future :-). I know what you’re thinking, yup daddy I sure did, I carry your name now ❤️🥰. You and Chase are what keep me pushing through this storm. And thank you for giving me the best bonus mom ever, she is still holding it down daddy. I can still hear your voice in my head everyday and even in my dreams, we all do. Daddy please keep watching over me and our family. I love you so much daddy, my sweet angel.

    I love you
    Your Shabuja
