I will miss Uncle Gene but I know he is happy to be with mamaw, papaw, Larry, Mary, and daddy along with all the other Bakers who have passed!! to Brenda, Debbie, and Louis I love you all deeply and couldn’t be prouder to have the Baker last name. Gene was exactly what all Bakers are…loving, caring, generous and all about family. I love you all.
