I am a PCW at Villa Acadienne and I will always remember Parker for his Birthday. Every year he use to tell me he had a Birthday in December and I would tell him I had one too. He would always tell me that he was a little bit older than me. I would tell him we could celebrate together but he would tell me he was not a partier! He was such a sweet man. I will remember him forever because he passed on my Birthday. May he Rest In Peace. My deepest deepest sympathies to his family.

Oh the memories of Parker and Thelma come flooding back. They were so kind to me when I would visit. Went to visit them before they went to Meteghan and Colleen and I finally told him we would set up jumps for his old workhorse..We all got a chuckle out of that after the many years that had passed. Thinking of all the family at this time.
