Out of Liberty came some great men, Bill Anderson, Tommy Bradley, Will Parker, my dad and many more. I remember camping at Glorieta with the Parkers. I remember Will always being the narrator, with that beautiful deep voice. Will and my dad had a passion for wood carving. It is sad seeing these great men pass on, but we know we will meet them again one day. Love you, Parker Family!

Such sweet memories of this wonderful man. I spent many Sundays at he and Margaret's home visiting Donna. I was always made to feel welcome and was treated like one of their own. Heaven is even brighter now with Will and the smile that was always on his face!

Love and prayers to all of you!
