    Thank you for the wonderful memories I have of Gram & Gramp when Lori & I went to Colorado all those years ago. They were such devoted, loving, caring people. I will never forget the spaghetti that Gram made using Elk meat that Don harvested and when they took us up to the cabin and let the 2 of us stay by ourselves for the weekend. On the way back, driving through a hail storm (size of golf balls.)
    The Grace of God surely shown in the lives of Gram & Gramp Parkin.

  2. Rev. Brian Tice says:

    Lori, Jamie, Angela, and family:
    My deepest condolences on your loss. May the assurance that your (great) grandmother is now at rest with her Heavenly Father help you find peace in this time of mourning.
