  • Sending my thoughts and prayers out to all of the Baar family in this difficult time. Uncle Cedric was such a kind and gentle person. Always so well spoken and caring, some of my best memories was when we came up to visit on weekends and holidays. All the family cooking and laughing and all the cousins causing havoc. I loved being in the kitchen trying to learn how to cook food from Africa. Even though we haven't spoken in years the advice you gave me years back, I will forever keep dear to my heart. You will be truly missed. Love Sonya

  • Such a sweet gentle soul. He will be missed. My deepest sympathy to the family.

  • Cedric was and is the truest Christian I have ever met in my life. He is a blessing from God! WE shall be reunited when I get my call home. God Bless his family as they adjust to their life with Cedric in their heart always. God Bless

  • I had the honor of knowing Cedric. I worked with him, he was best man at my wedding and my son's godfather. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and all who know and love him.

  • My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this tragic time.
