I feel so lucky to have been welcomed into the Baker family by Bob "Grampy" Baker. From day one he treated me with incredible kindness and made me feel so loved. I'll never forget, the night of my father in law (Ron's) 50th birthday party, Grampy told me that he knew Jason and I would end up getting married. He sealed that statement with his signature wink and smile. Little did he know that we were about to tell everyone in the room that we were engaged! He smiled just as kindly on the day of our wedding, and I am so happy that we were able to share that day with him. He passed on so many wonderful qualities to his grandson, and we plan to pass those same values on to our own children. His generosity, kindness and sense of humor will never be forgotten. We love you Grampy.
