I am so saddened with your passing. Praise the Lord that your suffering was minimal and your beloved family was by your side when you departed this life destined to be with the Lord.
We soon will realize that for the rest of our lives we will be resigned to eat substandard chicken pastry and chicken salad, since without any doubt yours was the best ever made
You are truly a remarkable lady. I along with all who knew you admired your courage and your always pleasant demeanor with optimism that never wavered.
You brought out the best in everyone that was in your presence.
For the Vivian Baker family your faith will get you through this loss of "Mama" and while she has departed this side, she will always be with you in all you do.
She loved you dearly and was very proud of you.
