Memories Timeline


  1. I miss you and love you very much. I will never forget you in my life. Not a lot of people have a great grandmother and I love you with all my heart. Love Ethan

  2. Kerry and Andy…My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. May you find comfort in the wonderful memories of your Mother.

  3. Maw-maw works can't describe what an amazing woman you were. All my life you have been the one person that I could count on, no matter what I did or what I said you would give me unconditional love without any strings attached. You were truly an amazing woman even as an honorary 92 years old. The last few years have been truly a blessing for me and my family and I'm so glad you were able to watch Ethan and Aidan grow up. They would talk about you everyday. I miss you so much and there is so much more I wanted to tell you. I love watching football with you, especially those LSU Tigers. I probably could have done without you reading every road sign when we took trips together. Monroe city limits, Entering Lincoln Parish, Speed Zone Ahead, 55 miles per hour just to name a few. I catch myself reading them all now. another favorite saying you used to say when asked what you wanted for your birthday, Million Bucks. Ethan and Aidan now like to say those exact words. I miss you maw-maw and my heart hurts! I love you and I will never forget you. You completed me and helped shape the man I am today. Give Paw-Paw, Uncle Wally and Shawn hell in heaven and make sure they don't eat all the Blue Bell ice cream.

  4. My condolences to the Parker family. I know you will miss Ms. Parker very much. Personally I was very blessed to have known her since Kerry married my brother, Andy. She was a beautiful woman, inside and out and I feel Heaven has another angel among them.

  5. My sweet Mawmaw,I knew I liked and would come to love you the minute I first met you. You always treated me like your granddaughter and I loved when you would introduce me as that. I am so thankful we were able to spend your last years with you. You were such a blessing to my family and I would not trade the time we had with you for anything. I am so thankful you got to watch Ethan and Aidan grow and that they got to spend so much time with you. You were such a huge part of their lives. They loved going to see Mawmaw and eating all of your snacks! Thank you for loving Scott and always being his rock. He is the man he is today because of you. You will be greatly missed by me and your three boys, but I smile when I think of you and Pawpaw reunited:).

  6. Our prayers are with the family. Diane and I met Scott's Maw-maw several years ago and came to love her. She was a very kind, loving, witty person. Who always had a comeback for everyone of Scott's comments. I had gotten to know her very well during our trips to Baton Rouge and her time in Monroe. She may have been hard of hearing. Though, she could cook a mean meat loaf and I enjoyed talking to her. She always had a smile, loved her family and touched everyones heart. As Scott's business partner and friend, I am very proud of Scott taking on the task of caring for his grandmother. May God Bless Mam Maw Parker.

  7. Want to send our sincere compassion and know the loving family that Patrick has had will be the support and love for each other during this difficult time. Beth and Billy Loftin Sr

  8. Well Mrs. Parker, you are now with Bud,Wally and Shawn. I want to say thank you for Kerry as well as the memories of the trips to the beaches.I have always felt that if i could not have had my parents, then you and Bud would have been the ones i would have picked.I will always charish your wit and smile. Your kindness as well as your cooking. I remember the times we sat and watched the college as well as the pro football games and pro golf on Saturdays and Sundays. From you favorite son in law to my favorite mother in law.
