Dear Cindy, Jordan and Patty:

We were so sorry to hear of Mike's passing. He was a great person and will be truly missed. His love of family and music always sustained him. We're so glad you were able to renew your vows and take the trip to Jamaica. It was obvious from the video this trip was very special for him. He truly loved all of you.

Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, we will not be able to come to the visitation or funeral. Know that we will be there in spirit.

With warm regard and sympathy,
Ric and Pat Poznanski

We will never forget the optimism and humor that characterized Mike as he dealt with whatever life threw at him. His love of music and playing was always evident, and he was truly a man who did not need eyes to be the inciteful, caring guy he was to talk to. He was a gift to all who knew him. The night sky just got brighter because his star has joined it.

I am so sorry to hear of the family's loss. I work at Maryland City Elementary School where Patti and Jordan attended. I remember Mr. baker coming in and talking to the Classes. I also remember him at the West Arundel Swim Club with his kids and having many a conversation wit him. His death is truly our loss. He made an impression on a lot of lives for the better. Prayers are with your family.

I met Mike a hand full of times - you could tell right away what a caring, loving, thoughtful person he was. He seemed to always make time for you even if he didn't know you very well - the smile on his face brightened up the entire room. My condolences to his friends and family that loved him dearly. I wish I could make the service but I will be out of town. RIP Mr. Baker - you were certainly one of a kind

Oh Mike there are no words to express how much we loved you.The great times we shared with you and Cindy at the Beach house the fun the bay crabs our friendship was the best thing that happened before, our children. I have cried non stop because I begged the hospital to take my kidney, but with MS they wouldn't! You wouldn't have gotten ms, if I wanted to give my life for yours they should have let me. You lost your last remaining eye because my brother Mick jabbed you in my pool. I will never forgive myself for you loosing your sight. Michael, you have gotten me through the hard times with my illness, I tried with you but, you were my rock. I will never find another friend like you. Cindy is my dearest girlfriend, and I will continue to help her get through this I will offer Patti and Jordy comfort when they ask. Thank you for being a wonderful friend, one I cherished daily. I pray in heaven there is no more blindness, no more amputation, no more illness. 💖 I pray you have met up with your family in heaven and are playing with all the great blues musicians you endeared. Until, we meet again, I'll carry out friendship in my heart well protected.. abundant love, my friend💖

Mickael, I know you can read now, so this is to tell that you were a great father, husband, and friend to many, many people. It may be an old refrain, but heaven now has a tight band. Say hello to my Dad for me, and tune his guitar for him.

To the family: I'm so sorry for your loss. It's very painful to lose someone you love dearly. The Bible gives us hope though. In Acts 24:15, it mentions that there will be a resurrection. So this means that you will have a chance to see your dead loved ones again. Isn't that a wonderful thing to look forward to? I hope that this brings you some comfort in your time of grief and if you would like any further information about the resurrection hope, please visit

I am so sorry for your loss. Please accept these words of encouragement at Revelation 21 : 4 which speaks of a time when there will be no more sickness, pain and death. May you draw comfort from this loving promise.
