Hello, to the family of Gerald Parker. My name is Leslie Parker. I received a note from my cousin Neal Parker-Lehew who lives near Horton telling me of the passing of Gerald. I did my growing up in Brown Cty, and have lived here in Arvada, Colo., since l964. I don't recall of ever meeting Gerald, now that I'm elderly I'm sorry that we relatives did not see and visit with each other back in our younger years. Richard, I recall visiting with you at the Parker Reunion in Highland some 25 plus years ago, you saying you were a teacher in K C.

In reading Gerald's obit he had an illustrious life with all the different organizations, varied hobbies, he accomplished much in his long life. He surely was a good friend, father, husband and brother. I have sister Marilyn's obit saying that Gerald lived in Falls City? We all share great grandparents John and Nancy Ann Rebecca Parker. But I don't having a record showing who your grandparents were. There were ll in the family, I'm guessing it may have been Charles or L. William, My sincere condolences to you Richard and the rest of Gerald's extended family.

Sincerely, Les Parker

Wanda and family:

Our sympathy and prayers are with you at this time. Gerald was such a sweet man. He would stop by the station about once a month and visit. We always enjoyed his visit when he came. Daryl thought a lot of Gerald and often had him make something for him. I don't think there was anything he could not do. He will be greatly missed.

Thoughts and prayers go out to Jerry's family during this time. He was my dad's first cousin. I'm so glad that I just saw him a couple of weeks ago at our Kreuzburg family reunion, which he had so graciously been planning for all of us the last several years. I will sure miss seeing and visiting with him, always such a nice guy. He worked with my husband for several years, at Abitibi/Flair-Fold. Kevin sure enjoyed working and visiting with him over the years. Thinking of all of his close family & friends. ~Kevin & Brenda (Kreuzburg) Thonen, Hiawatha, KS
