Over the many years that Linda has been married to my brother Bill, I only had a few occasions to meet Virginia Baker. But I think to know Linda is to have a real sense of knowing Virginia. Virginia's qualities of kindness, giving generously from her heart, love of family and community, imparting her love for working with her hands to her children are qualities I see in Linda and I know they are reflected in all Virginia's children. My heartfelt sympathy to the Baker Family. Love, Mary
