Dear Parker Family,

So sorry to her that your beloved Katrine has passed, but I’m sure she has already been received with the open arms of our beloved Savior, Jesus Christ. For her there’s great joy but for all of us who knew her we feel the loss of her love and friendship. I loved her and am very honored to have known her. I loved her enthusiasm for life and her loved of God’s word. I will sincerely miss her. Blessings to Gail and Carrie…you all were so good to her and she was so proud of you and the rest of the family. I can see her smiling. Love, Lori

Mrs. Parker was a wonderful sixth grade teacher. She is a big part of the reason I chose education as my career. Joel and I extend our sympathies to Phil and Carey and their families at this time.
