Mrs. Margaret Parker will truly be missed. She would always say, Darlene when are you coming back to visitor me? And I will never forget that day that I went over to Mrs. Margaret Parker's house, and I smelled gas very strongly. And I immediately told Mrs. Margaret Parker that I smell gas, and I got to call the Gas Company. Mrs. Margaret Parker agreed, and the gas man came out, and said to Mrs. Margaret Parker, that he do not see how she made it. Well, I told Mrs. M. Parker, I can see how you made it, "BY THE GRACE OF GOD". REST ON Mrs. Margaret Parker. You will be Always in my Heart

I loved my aunt very much she always treated me and my brothers like we were her own children. Every year I would visit her and spend some time with her . We would sit up late at night and talk she was a night person and so was I . I learned things about the family I never would have known with out those late night talks. Thank you aunt margret now May God rest your soul.
My deepest condolences to the Parker family at this time of loss. You are in my deepest thoughts and prayers today.
