Ellen, Steve, and Sandie,
I have been thinking of y'all a lot lately.I have tried to get in touch with Sandie for quite some time, and I just happened to get on the internet to search again when I saw that your Dad had passed away. I have such wonderful memories of him and your Mother when we were all living on Burgess Street. He was such a gentle giant! So thankful he lived such a long and meaningful life. All of you, and your Mom and Dad, hold such a special place in my heart.

Mr. Baker was a mild mannered, sweet spirited person. He always had a genuine smile day in and day out. Knowing him was surely a pleasure.

Daddy John was a sweet and kind man and this legacy lives on through his sweet and kind family that I am blessed to know. I traveled to Puerto Rico with Daddy John and had the pleasure of experiencing swimming with him. From what I understand this was a first in a long time for him. I will never forget that look of delight when he first entered the pool. What a lucky family to have had him in their lives. My thoughts are with you. Love, Lise

John not only built physical bridges, he built bridges of love to everyone who knew or were touched by him. I am blessed to have known him and his family. He lives in many hearts. My thoughts are with you. Kent
