  1. If tears could build a stairway
    And memories were a lane
    I would walk right up to Heaven
    And bring you home again

    I love my Grandma!!

  2. May the Lord forgive her of all her mistakes and accept her in the light of His face and allow her to enjoy the happiness with Him in Heaven. Amen

  3. Nancy, Chuck, and families….There are really no words that can bring you the comfort that you are needing….but know that you have many friends who are thinking of and praying for you as you go through this difficult time. Sometimes words seem so insignificant…..the loss of a parent is a profoundly difficult time, yet a time to reflect and celebrate the life of someone you love. Time will help ease your hurt. But be assured a mother’s love never dies, she is with you always as she lives now in your heart.

  4. Just a wonderful person to know and a great friend and MIL. Thank you. Rest in peace.

  5. Our deepest condolences.
    You all are in our thoughts and prayers.💙

  6. Nancy,Chuck and families,
    Please accept our deepest sympathies in the loss of your beautiful mother. I will always remember her beautiful smile and kind mannerisms! Heaven has gained a lovely angel who will proudly watch over all of you 😇

  7. Deepest sympathy to the Baker Family. Wonderful memories of Mrs. Baker growing up and in the church activities. What a wonderful smile she had that reflected her love! Another angel will be forever in your hearts and watching over you all. God Bless you. 🙏🏻😇
