To the Parker family,

Please accept my condolences on the passing of your mother. During the time I worked at Santiago's for Thomas, I remember her as warm, kind and very sincere. It was always a pleasure to see her and Mr. Paker at the restaurant, a real pleasure. May God bless you with comfort and strength now and forever.
