Appreciation

"Often time's thoughts are better expressed in words; I am not sure what has brought us together but I feel it is better not to question these things. It is truly a blessing and a wonderful experience having met you in this very random way. You have brought joy to us by seeing Courtney as we do. It is so rewarding for a total stranger to have seen something as you have and to have made it into something so special we will never forget…The Courtney you see in your lens is what we see. We would like to say how much we appreciate the experience you have afforded us with your talents and time you have spent."

Dedication

"To the editor :
We have noticed that Jerry Baker is no longer photographing for The Courier, and we would be remiss if we didn’t comment on his work there.
In his many years at The Courier, Jerry has serviced the county and community well with his expert photographic coverage of local events while seemingly having the ability to be everywhere for everybody all at the same time. Jerry’s photography was a big part of the Conroe area and so was Jerry himself. He supported and befriended thousands of his captured subjects as though they were family members. His photos and his kind words and the encouragement allowed moments and memories to be remembered by many.
