Footprints In The Sand

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed
he was walking along the beach with the LORD.

Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene he noticed two sets of
footprints in the sand: one belonging
to him, and the other to the LORD.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him,
he looked back at the footprints in the sand.


He noticed that many times along the path of
his life there was only one set of footprints.

He also noticed that it happened at the very
lowest and saddest times in his life.

This really bothered him and he
questioned the LORD about it:

"LORD, you said that once I decided to follow
you, you'd walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that during the most
troublesome times in my life,
there is only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why when
I needed you most you would leave me."

The LORD replied:

"My son, my precious child,
I love you and I would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffering,
when you see only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you."

His ride is over, a remarkable man. Bob came to the end of his road at 1:11AM Easter Sunday April 16, 2017 in the arms of his beloved wife Barb and adoring family. It was a very short hard fought battle. Robert John Baker was only 56 years old.

Mr. Fix It will always be remembered for the kind, loving & inspirational person he was. Our hearts will be filled with love whenever we think of him. Thoughts of Bob will always bring a smile to the faces of everyone lucky enough to have him be part of their lives.  He spent 25 years working at bubbles, then Best Western for a few months when he finally came across his calling. Working with the Sturgeon Foundation in Gibbons where he loved not only his job but also his co-workers and the residence. He and his wife Barb operated a DJ/Karaoke company Karokonuts for the last 25 years where Bob shared his voice that sounded like an angel with many.

Rest in Peace Bob now your hard painful fight is over, well ours to go on without you is just beginning. You will forever be in our hearts.
