Personal note from Ed Renner: “Growing up in Baker, God gave me the best parents a kid could ever have. My Mom and Dad taught me the value of honesty and a strong work ethic. Even though we hardly ever said it back in those days, I always knew my Mom and Dad loved me and were always there for me, I’m looking forward to seeing them in heaven.”
