John and Helen Baker were my neighbors in Sanger. But they were both much more than that to me. I considered them not only my friends but my second parents. I was lucky enough to get to know them by helping Helen with housework. I loved their stories of their lives growing up, their faith in God and their love of their old cat. John was so happy to hear that my daughter was pursuing a degree in Biology. He would give me his Science magazines for her. When Ipads first came out, he suggested my daughter could use one for her studies. I couldn’t afford one at the time. He handed me half of what they cost and chuckled as he said don’t tell Helen. My daughter got her IPad and was so grateful. Funny thing, she wrote John a thank you note but he left it where Helen could see it. She just laughed when she heard about his gift. They were both very caring, loving and giving people. I miss them both but know they are together again.
