Our "Aunt Kiki" was my dad's ("Papa's") older sister. Since Papa died 15 years ago, Kiki always called me on his birthday, July 10, to catch up on our families and reminisce about my Dad, her brother Jay.

Kiki was the oldest of her siblings, as am I, and we just somehow connected across the miles from California to Illinois even though we only met in person a handful of times over the years. Maybe it was a firstborn thing, I dont know, but I am so honored that I had the opportunity to get to know her and, through her, gain a little more insight into my Dad and his side of our family who have always lived thousands of miles away from ours.

I am especially grateful that Kiki lived to see the day that my brother David, missing for over 20 years, was found alive and well by the wonderful officers of the Quality of Life Department of the Long Beach PD. Kiki never failed to ask if we had heard from Dave in each of our many phone conversations. She never seemed to give up hope that he would be found although frankly I had let go many years earlier. But her faith paid off and you can bet that I couldnt wait to let her know that good news.

I would like to think of Jay and Kiki and now their younger sister Edith back together now laughing about their childhood antics during their summers in Manasquan, New Jersey or, perhaps, about Kikis relief when their family finally received a letter from the War Department letting them know that Jay, although wounded on Iwo Jima in WWII, had survived his injuries. Their generation certainly contributed to our country and these two definitely played their parts.

So happy trails to Papa, Kiki, and Edith and may they rest in peace as they live on in our fond memories.

God has been collecting Angel's and he now has one of the most beautiful and kindest ones possible.
As a teacher, she was my very favorite. To think that one can look all the way back to 2nd grade and remember that she was the one that stood out and made the biggest impact on me, says a lot. Her caring disposition and positive ways impacted SO many kids lives. We were lucky to have her guiding our way.
As an adult, I had the privilege to know her as a special and dear friend. I am grateful for the many visits and time spent, both with her and Mr. Parker.
May the two of them be reunited in their wonderful love.
My sincere sympathy to the Parker family.

To the Parker Family,
Sorry to hear about Kiki. She was a jewel of a person. Always smiling. You always felt good in her presence. One of my memories of Kiki is hanging up the wash in Manasquan. She was the best at that job. Aunt Marge always approved. Aunt Edith as well.
Several months ago, she called me and we got caught up on family. So glad we spoke.
God love sweet woman.
Love,
Aunt Joan Pflug

My sincerest condolences to all the Parker Family. Aunt Kiki was such a wonderful, kind woman. I have great memories of her in Manasquan. I remember being sick and being confined to the house. Your Mom went into town and returned with coloring books and comic books to keep me busy.
RIP sweet Aunt Kiki.
Love, Cousin Dean Pflug
