Barb, Jim, and Joan, I was very moved when I saw that your father passed. He brought my brothers (Dean and Donald) and I into the world and I remember him making house calls to our home when one of us was sick. I recall that he loved baseball and I remember the time he took us and you to the Little League Stadium to play ball one afternoon. We had a good time even though it was cut short because he was called to deliver a baby. He was a caring man and a person I will never forget. David Scribner

Dear Barb, Jim, and Joan, I was so sad to hear of our Dad's Passing. We cherished our friendship with your family. Mom and I often wondered how He was doing after your Mom died. We sent cards but they were returned as address unknown. Al and I often speak of the wonderful times we all had together grwing up. The trips we all took to the airport with your Mom and Grandma Baker were exciting as chldren to see the planes land. I also remember how your Mom and my Dad froze our back yards in the winter so we could ice skate. Your Dad was always a very compasionate and understnding Physician. He always had time for everyone and was aways so patient, upbeat and friendly. He lived a very successful and long life. May your heart be filled with warm thoughts and treasured memories of your Father. You are in my thoughts and prayers at this sad time. I hope to see you at the Memorial in Batavia. Fondly, Prudy DiPiazza 107 Tracy Ave. 585-343-3051

To the family of Dr. Peter Baker, My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. I think of him every time I drive down Bank Street! He delivered all three of my children, and I made many visits to his office. I now have five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

How saddened I was to hear about the passing of Dr. Baker. Dr. and Mrs. Baker were long-time friends of my parents, Norm and Alice St. Clair. I have pictures of the group of friends in the mid to late 50's at one of their many parties--often at the Baker's home on Bank Street. We visited them a couple of times in the '90's after they moved to Florida, and my Mother was with us in Florida. In fact, one of my first jobs was as a nurse's aide in the maternity ward at the old Genesee Memorial Hospital--Dr. Baker was one of the most respected doctors at that hospital. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you. May your many memories sustain you.

Peter was the first person we met here, and we'll never forget him. He introduced himself: "You're the new folks!. My name is Peter Baker, and I turned 100 last month! Do you play bridge?" It was a pleasure to have known him, and his wonderful sense of humor. He was a man who obviously loved life...and people. We'll miss him, and send our condolences to his family and frineds.
