  4. What I most remember about Bruce Baker was the great stories he could tell! The next time you saw Bruce if you didn’t remember the stories he told before he would be more the willing to tell you again! LOL He was the greatest father figure I ever knew. His whole life is the example of ,redemption , salvation through Christ’s forgiveness and love. He has fostered an amazing family with the love of his life Patsy. Their daughter Carolyn is my sister-in-law and the family always referred to me as Carolyn Knott Casey. He believed this to be funny and it was. I was always made to feel welcomed even though I was never truly family. I have been through life on the edges of this family and am always amazed and comforted by the loyalty this large extended family has one another. No matter how they felt about each others point of view, their love was unconditional. I truly will miss Bruce and the world will be less without his presence but Oh my goodness what a marvelous soul that Haven has gained! I love all my Bakers and pray that they receive the blessing of Peace that passes all understanding.
    Carolyn Knott Casey
