We are so sad to learn of Charles' death but know he is with Chris and Mary now. Charles was a longtime friend and we both grew up on Cherry Street. I think he put in a good word for me and helped me get a job at PPG in 1959. When Jan and I married, her sister and cousin were candlelighters but were too short to light the candles so Charles stepped in and lit them and he and Ed decorated our car. Through the years, our families enjoyed boating together. Our sympathies to his brothers and daughters and their families. Mack and Jan Toles

My thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Parker's family. I was privileged to know both he and Mary and they were both such wonderful people. I spoke with him recently and reminisced about his wife and Parker Realty. He will be greatly missed and Rome has been lucky to have him. He left a wonderful mark on Rome that will be remembered. Blessings to his family and friends.
