    To Carolyn and Family:
    I am so sorry to hear of Parker’s passing. I know he is at peace now. I will remember him as being a nice man , who always made you feel welcome to his home, making jokes, having a jovial spirit and always smiling. Remember, weeping may endure during the night, but joy wii come in the morning. Stay strong!
