Mrs. Baer, as I knew her, was such a gracious lady. Back in the 60's and 70's kids still called their friend's parents as Mr. or Mrs. And I would not be able to change that now. Her daughter, Celia and I spent so much time together, and I always got to see Mrs. Baer doing the many many things she did; taking care of her household, baking bread every Saturday, such a cool thing I thought, tending the garden, cooking, reading, going to work as the school librarian, and of course walking! She and Mr. Baer have been an inspiration. Mrs. Baer always had nice things to say to me. She was someone that would make you want to do your best. It is hard to believe that both Mr. and Mrs. Baer are gone. They will always be remembered with great appreciation and will continue to inspire me. I have added a beautiful picture of poppies, becauae I know Mrs. Baer so appreciated things of beauty and the outdoors.
Love to all of the Baer family.
