Arretta was the kindest and most loving person anyone could know. I remember many years of her wonderful baking and my parents really thought the world of her. Her carrot cake or any cake she made was awesome. My dad used to love to visit with her when he could and he always spoke highly of Arretta. He passed away a few years ago but I still remember when he and I would go and visit Arretta and we loved her very much. I have told many people about her baking down through the years. She was the best. She will really be missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you all. Susan Warren Flowers

Joann, Mack, Billy and Clyde:
Granny Baker was an inspiration to our lives. She taught us the true meaning
of the belief in God, the belief in family and the belief in hard work. We will miss her, but we know she is now where she lived to be. We wish we could be there with you during these troubled times, but our hearts and prayers are with you. May God Bless and keep you in His arms until we can see Granny Baker again. Love, Linda, Philip and family.
