PARKER - In loving memory of our dear mother, Arda Mae Parker, who passed away Nov. 22, 1986 at 44 years of age.
"Mom" a poem by A.R. Ritchie
You gave us this "Breath of Life"
We'll be grateful for the rest of our life.
And as the days and years pass by
We'll be beholden to you.
We will be the proudest children,
Thinking always of you,
Someday time will take its toll,
And we will have to part.
But, I want you to know "today"!
You'll always be in our hearts.
Betty, Jim, Tim, Sherry.
