Condolences to the Parker family on your loss. Worked with Dave at Home Depot back in the 90's. He was a thoughtful, caring person that I had the pleasure of working with. Keep the warm memories you have of him close in your heart and that will give you much needed comfort at this time. God bless him and all those he loved. May he rest in peace.
