I remember the holiday family get-togethers, the crazy fun at the reunions and Uncle Bud and Chris singing. I remember our family fishing with the Bakers at Starved Rock among many fond kid's memories. Bud's family values education and being with them made me feel right about my own and I looked forward to the lively chats we'd have. They were fun.
Sorry to hear of your loss Melynda. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.
Uncle "Bud" was the "Music Man" at all family gatherings, and I remember especially him singing at Grandma and Grandpa Baker's anniversary in Dana at the park, and at Blanche and Jim Madole's wedding.
I remember Mr. Baker from Rosette and him coaching my doing the solo comps and hearing about the apple that was grown in his back yard.
So many good memories from our childhood at Grandma and Grandpa Bakers. They were so proud of Uncle Jim. He had a wonderful voice. He was a wonderful man.Grandma and Grandpa's family is now complete again in Heaven.
