In memory of...

Timothy Baker
January 13, 1948-December 29, 2009

Lamb 2 with Tim Baker

This photo was taken the last time we saw Tim, in July 2006, although we talked on the phone and wrote letters since then. This is the photo that I will remember him by. His wife Carolyn got out toys and books for our two Lambs to play with, but they didn't know them so they were pretty shy to even play with the toys. Tim grabbed Lamb 2 when he had a chance to hold a baby. Lamb 2 went right to sleep and Tim held him for most of our afternoon visit. During that visit, he had to tell us all about his 6 children and all his grandchildren.

Ram is at the funeral today in ID and will fly home tomorrow.

One of his daughters has written some posts on her blog recently talking about her dad. His daughter-in-law has also written some posts talking about him too. In reading their blogs, it seems as if they are keeping this Bible verse in mind.

Do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah 8:10

We love you Baker family and you are in our prayers.
