We are the survivors: we lived through the week, a fugue of joy and despair, hope and tragedy.  One person who did not survive, the co-owner of the long-gone Al Baker’s Restaurant in Clayton, Mary Baker.  The outpouring of love is apparent in all who knew her.  Like a Grecian goddess, she swept with her husband, Al, throughout the dining mecca and was always on hand to greet diners and imbibers with a smile and curiosity asking each about the well-being  of their families.  As the end approached, she carried on with dignity and courage.  We”ll miss Mary.

    What a grand lady she was. I can still see and remember the taste of the best lamb I have ever had at Al Bakers. My sympathy to Al.

  • Joe Hanon says:

    Al Baker and Mary were inseparable and still are.
    My heart goes out to Al.

    I took many a date to Al Baker’s …the atmosphere impressive, the food & service was top notch, and the Baker’s were most delightful≥ And depending on your menu, if you ate too much you could choose to hit the Crossroads Bowl, or wander into George Turner’s Gym…another area that held promise, and now gone.
