I really liked Paul Parker. I picked apples for his father when I was a teenager back in the 1970s. Paul Parker was always kind to everyone.
My husband, Joe, and I send our thoughts and prayers to you at this time of loss. I remember you and your brother and me and my sister picking up apples when your dad had the small orchard of apple trees. May God comfort you as only He can...
