Dear Roberta,

I am so saddened to learn of Parker's passing. He was my favorite colleague at Adams Tate: one that I could always trust, one that I could always look to for wise advice and, as I recall, one who preferred to "lamp" documents rather than read or review them. : ) I always liked that expression and have borrowed it from him many times.

Parker was a great guy. It seems like just yesterday that we were both growing and learning in that business. I'll always remember him fondly and I hope you are managing as well as possible. Please accept my condolences and share them with his children.

I read, with sadness, in this morning's paper that Parker died a few days ago. Please accept my sincere condolences. A good and decent man, was he. His answers ( and his questions) were always direct & always with a smile. I would have to say that he was one of my very favorite Trust Officers of all time. ( Of course you rank right up there as well. ) Citibank's loss was certainly ASB's gain. That of course was only topped by the "happening" two very special people getting together to share a life for all these years. He was indeed blest to have had you as partner.
We are thinking of you. May the hole that is in your heart by this loss, over time, get smaller.
