    I will always be grateful for the memories I have with him and the rest of my family. Growing up at the lake. All of the dinners at my aunt Carol’s house. Watching wrestling pay-per-views. The annual Baker reunions, followed by going to the Williamson Co. Fair (when it was clean and awesome). Mostly, just him wanting to be around as we all grew up.
