To the Baker Family: Please take a moment to imagine Ms. Mary in paradise! Each morning she awakes feeling rested and eager to begin her day. She has no aches or pains. Any infirmities she once had are gone. All her senses--sight, smell, touch, hearing, and taste--function perfectly. Her energy is abundant, her work is enjoyable, her friends are many, and all her worries are gone. Such will be the blessings she can enjoy under God's Kingdom when his will is done on earth. (Matthew 6:10) She will be missed!
