Dear Baker family,
Dee Dee was my dad Regis's cousin and growing up I remember getting together with your family in Pittsburgh. Your mom was a very nice woman and like a sister to my dad. Our family offers you our deepest condolences at this very sad time.

I am very sorry about Mrs.Dee Baker.
I will be missing her and I believe all the athletes in Special Olympics will be missing her too.
