"My memory of your Dad only goes back to his Pelican days, but by reading the beautiful and touching testiments posted I have come to know just what a wonderful and interesting father you must have grown up with...only time and your faith will help you in the healing journey you and your family are on...I am still on the same journey..."

"I learned of Mr Parnell's death in the Washington Post. My brothers, sister and I met Mr. Parnell when we went to buy a 1957 purple and white Plymouth Belvedere (my mother's request even though she did not drive). My dad, Joe Macaluso, played sandlot ball with Mr. Parnell in the "old" neighborhood. They last had contact when both were undergoing treatment in 2003 (a few months before dad died). I understand that they had a great time reminiscing and the doctors and the nurses got the biggest kick out of their stories. RIP Mr Parnell - I know you and dad are catching up on old times now."
