There are no words for those who have lost as loss leaves a heartache no one can heal. However, love leaves a memory no one can steal.
Aunt Mary will always be in our hearts and remembered for her kindness and compassion, especially for the children. I will always hold dear the memory of her patience and encouragement while letting Connor and Tristan explore their musical interests on her piano – they did not share her and her children’s musical talents. The life lessons she shared with me through the ages – whether it was how to pour milk on my cereal (before adding sugar) or driving advice to stop so I could see the tires of the vehicle in front – are with me to this day.
Keeping the Parker family members in my thoughts and prayers and wishing them strength and peace. Your mother’s kindness was contagious and her memory will live on forever in our hearts.
