I didn't know him as Mr. Parker or John. I knew him as Grandpa! He didn't have to be my biological grandfather but just a man who gave the welcoming spirit of one. It's been a pleasure being around you when I did. I know you are now free and not confined. God's loving arms welcomed you. To the family my prayers are with you all. My friend / sister Jimmese, Grandpa, I know was greatful to have you as a granddaughter. Remeber he is still with us. The spirit is free and one day so will ours and hopefully we all can walk around heaven all day with our love ones. We will see you again when we get there. Now enjoy the wonderful eternal life that God has for you. Thank you for blessing us all grandpa!
