Where to begin? She will always be Mrs. Bakke to me. She was a very elegant & proper lady. One day Anne asked if Susie & I could come over for dinner. She welcomed us with open arms, until she realized the 3 of were drunk. Needless to say we were never invited again. Not true, this time Mr. Bakke grill delicious steaks, we knew better to go there again after a day of drinking. Anne & Linda you were lucky to have the parents you had. Both loved one another & both loved you & your families very much. She will be missed, however she is at peace & with her Arne.
