Chelsea and family: I am so sorry to hear of Bayless' passing. He was the sweetest, kindest man I have ever met in my life. He was such a good friend to my father who has known him longer than the 53 years I've been alive. I hope you find comfort in knowing how much he has positively influenced everyone who had contact with him. I am convinced that he saved my dad's life when they shared a hospital room a few years ago and has been God's angel sent to so many others as well. I will continue to lift you all up to His tender care and pray He will shower you all with blessings,comfort, peace and beautiful memories as Bayless continues to live richly in your hearts. He will be dearly missed by me and my entire family.
