Mark, Ann, George, Scott & Martha, I'm saddened to hear that your Dad has passed. I realize this is late, however since Jim passed away, I no longer get the paper so I just found out on Wednesday. During the last few years before Jim got sick, we would all go out to dinner and had really good conversations and there was always the back and forth of just who was going to pay the bill. And some discussion as to where to go next time and Jim having a fit whenever your Dad decided he needed to shovel the drive. So Jim started to snow blow his drive and the next day or two would your Dad come over and snow blow ours. And he did so several times when Jim was ill. He defied going old enough to just sit in the chair and vegetate. May God bless you all.

I am so saddened to hear of Mr. Baker's passing. We had a wonderful, wide ranging conversation at The Doctor's office a year ago. Our deepest sympathy to the family. Remembering the Bakers as such a great family back in the sixties into the seventies in Chardon. I considered Mr. Baker a true gentleman. An era has passed. Dan Chapman

Dear Baker family, I'm so sorry to hear of your dad's passing. I SO enjoyed his company during softball games in the summer. His bright smile easily brought a smile to my face every time. Know that you all are being thought of at this time. Healing Blessings for you all. Much love and a hug when you need one.
