  1. So sorry to hear of Parke’s passing. I enjoyed so many good times with him and all the fun we had working for him over the years. Prayers for his kids and all his family. You will be missed my friend and never forgotten.

  2. I was immensely saddened to hear of Parke’s passing. He was always so sweet and kind to me. Not every man is confident enough to have women just as friends but Parke did it with ease. My heart goes out to Penny and the kids. May God keep you and comfort you through this difficult time. I will always treasure my memories of Parke and all the good times we had. Rest in peace my dear friend.
