Dear Baker Family, I myself and my brother Kurt and sister Amy have so many childhood memories growing up on the hill with Lonnie and Kelly. We will always remember Nibs kindness and that smile he always had on his face. My husband Matt has the joy of knowing Nib as well. Our prayers and thoughts are with you.

Wanted to express our sympathies and say we are sorry we can’t be with you all. I feel lucky that I was able to visit with Grampap one last time just a month ago and that he was able to see one of his great-great-grandsons Alex again. We’ll always remember his smile and good sense of humor, and we’ll all miss him.
