Dear Marilyn and Joe,

If it is possible to read this poetry to Don and family, would you  
please do so. Our prayers are sent for them as well.  I can imagine  
joining those of you there in song.

  I recall when Don Baker was journeying through the last stages of  
his life on our planet, we (local folks)  as the Order gathered and  
sang.  I remember singing When I'm on my Journey, Those who wait on  
the Lord,  and other songs.  A chant I remember singing was The River  
if Flowing.  I will be singing these songs in my heart.

The River is flowing, flowing and growing,
the river is flowing, down to the sea. (X2)
Mother, carryme, a child I will always be,
Mother, carry me down to the sea.

Thank you (whoever has gathered) for being OUR presence with Don and  
his family.  You are all loved,
