    Thank you for being born. Thank you for overcoming struggles and leading a long, happy life. Thank you for being a good role model to your children and grandchildren. Thank you for showing what marriage is really supposed to be like. Thank you for your great laughter. Thank you for picking me up from school when I was sick. Thank you for swinging with me on the porch swing. Thank you for letting me play with your lipstick. Thank you for singing to me and cooking breakfast. Thank you for always being there. I will see you again in just a little while.

    My sincere sympathy to the Parrish family. Mrs. Parrish was truly a beautiful person….both inside and out. I cherish all of my good conversations with she and Mr. Parrish. Their devotion was always evident! I am glad that I had the opportunity to know Mr. and Mrs. Parrish. Their parenting shows through in all of the children that I am privileged to know!
