Herman, you were always Daddy’s favorite friend and if I heard one “Herman Baker and I story” I heard 1,000. Well now you and Daddy can get back to the good times; hunting, working on things and just plain hanging out. I hope anyone that reads this will relay sympathy to your dear son Charles “Butch” Baker. He is a wonderful man, father and husband. You can leave this earth knowing you left a good man behind!! God bless you Herman
