Dolly Baker was one of a kind. She could give you the meanest look one minute and in the next hug you with the strongest arms you ever felt. She had a heart of gold. I've shared with several, there are many people you meet in your life, but only a few of them leave a lasting memory forever. Dolly was one of these, we talked for hours on the phone until she could no longer be home. I miss those talks very much. But even more precious is that I can without a doubt say that I have met few "women of God" to this day in my life but Dolly Baker was one of them. When she said she would pray for you - she meant it. Words I'll remember forever - "patches you have to pull up your boot straps and go on_not your momma or God would expect you to stay put". Dolly was right- the last thing I got to share with her during her last stay at UHC was - thanks to the many prayer warriors like her - "patches" found her way home, loves her Savior and will forever thank the Lord for putting Dolly Baker in her path". Until we meet again - Patty

My sincere condolences to the Baker family. May you find comfort in your loving memories, and in God's promise to soon "swallow up death forever" and "wipe away the tears from all faces." (Isaiah 25;8) With deepest sympathy,
