Not sure what to say?

I always treasured time with my Grandfather. Even after spending the summer with him in Arizona and the long car ride to and from, I felt like there was a lot more to know.

I tried to find whatever excuse I could to spend time with him. Early on, I would pretend to fall out of bed when I heard my Grandparents stop by to see my mom. Later on I'd ask for help with things like getting a bike and other stuff they did for me when I was younger.

I am honored and fortunate to have been named after Grandpa Parks. He had every great quality of a hero. He will certainly never be forgotten. I will always cherish the times we spent together, especially our Three Stooges marathons.

Denise, I am so sorry for your loss. Know that your Pops has found his peace and is still there for you... just in a better place keeping a watchful eye. Prayers and condolences to you and your family.

I remember the red and white body long shirt he sent to me in 1st grade with his token phrase, "Hi Guy" in big red letters on the front. I always looked forward to the time we spent together.
