There will only be one Mr. Man in the Bakers lives forever!! We have to admit when we moved into our Greensboro home, we were a little disappointed a middle aged man and his wife were living across the street and not a young family with little kids like us. But boy were we ever wrong! That man has come to be a grandfather, a father, and a best friend to this family! He never let our move stand between us and would come visit every year!!! The laughs over his eating and drinking habits, the tears over his life stories. The times he saved us all from wrecked garages, plastic wiring, dire need of a babysitter, pancake deliveries, hurt and sick babies, and just knowing how to fix something for us are countless! The memories we have made, holidays we have spent together, and the pure love he gave us all is priceless!!! We love you forever Mr. Man!! You are one of a kind!
Love,
The Bakers
Buckeye too!
