My condolences to the entire family for your loss. Mrs. Baker was this beautiful lady who made everyone feel at home and I know this after spending most of my youth at the house. Just a walk across the street I knew I was always welcomed. With great loss comes great memories and that is what I will carry forward those beautiful memories of spending time with the entire family and of the tree out front of the house which Mary and I planted; such great memories. I wouldn't be who I am today without the kindness of people such as Mrs. Baker gave me. All my love
Ed & Cathy
So sorry to hear about your mom/grandma, Bonnie (Rob, Drew and Heather). We never met her but heard some stories and she always sounded like a strong, independent woman. At least now she is at peace and free from any pain or worries.
The passing of the Matriarch of Elmlea Dr & the mother of my favourite girls is very sad : so on behalf of myself & the boys ( Mark- Chris- Robin & Danny) rest in peace Mrs Baker
