The members of the Sebastian Co. Cattlemen's Association are saddened to hear of Brice's death. He was a long-time member. He and Freda provided valuable guidance for a number of years on the Board of Directors . Our thoughts are with Freda and the whole family.

Freda - Joe and I want to express our sympathy - our prayers. We remember visiting at your home various times when you had different animals that Brice had brought home for healing. The favorite memory Is of bringing Andrew when he was probably 6 and we petted baby wild cats who had very sharp teeth. When Andrew shared with his class on Monday, some of the people didn't believe him. Precious. We love you - sorry for your loss! Barb and Joe

I wanted to share this on his guest book. While listening to stories and learning things I didn't know from Brice's friends and coworkers I found he had a saying on the radio, when he was called he always answered.....133..Go On Ahead. That struck me as a story and bounced in my head for the past several days. I sat down and penned this poem. I'm not a writer, but thought all would enjoy.
133.....Go On Ahead
Brice Parker
Officer 133 Arkansas Game and Fish Commission

God spoke to Brice in his on way

He heard the call and went there today.

Heaven called, and God said

133 …...go on ahead

Bears, Birds, and Big Cats as well

He loved his critters and loved to tell

Of all the owls he nursed to wing.

Large the love, his heart could bring.

For these friends he fought and bled

133......go on ahead

Blackie, Bambi, are names you see,

waiting in heaven for Brice to be

holding his hand with food in palm

renewing old friends in this place of calm.

Tonight he sleeps in God's Bed.

133.....Go on ahead

Naval Air Buddies have gone before

there they are, at God's door

calling on Pinkie, Pinkie Who?

A name few knew, was actually you!

On the Carrier with wings widespread

133......Go on ahead.

Descending from above in a Huey with friends

that criminal must make his amends.

The poachers escape was all for naught

he should not have bragged he wouldn't get caught

They broke the law and feel the dread.

133......Go on ahead

In heavens purity the rivers flow

with a name like White all must know.

Rainbows and Browns jump on the line,

and are served up tasting... fine, just fine.

Brice is there with pole in hand, fishing with lures of silver and red.

133.....Go on ahead

Hurry Hurry Hurry, words we've all heard.

Brice beat us to heaven, We'll miss that old bird

Celebrate his great life and remember instead.

133........Go on ahead.

God called and said....

133.......Go on Ahead.
