Mrs. Parker and family,
I am heartbroken to hear of Dr. Parker's passing. He was a great man, a wonderful teacher, a strong advocate for the residents and a good friend. I think of him often and miss the days spent with him in the Department and at the ME office. I hope you don't mind the pictures I added. They are some of my favorite memories of him! He will be forever loved and missed.

Thank you for sharing your knowledge with me during my residency in Pathology at the University of Louisville. I will always be grateful for your guidance . May our blessed Heavenly Father comfort your family. Rest in peace.

May the God of all comfort sustain your family during the days ahead Psalms 119:76
