    The neighborhood wouldn’t have been the same without the Parker’s! I know my dad would send his condolences if he could get online, and our brother Ron will give your mom a big hug when he sees her in heaven. It really helps to think about her watching over you and giving you little signs that she’s around, a smell, a rainbow, a song she liked, or a cardinal. I’ve seen a cardinal at my parents and it looked like it flew right into the living room window and I saw one Mon when I was having a really hard day. I’ve lived in my house for 22 yrs and have never seen one and it was right outside my bedroom window and I believe it was Ron again.
    So your momma will be in your heart forever and once in awhile she will give you a nudge to say hello.
    Hugs and prayers the Foorman’s
