I came home. from school, and my mom told me. I didn't expect it at all, I'm still so phased by everything. I didn't see him much but he was still dad and I still love him. I miss him everyday, not being able to go to visits anymore. Then to make it worse I got sick a couple days before the funeral, so I wasn't aloud to go. I know I already said it but I do miss him and I do love him.

Dear Parker family. I am so sorry to have read of the death of Jarod. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28, 29 and Revelation 21:4. These verses tell us that soon God is going to bring about a resurrection of our dear loved ones as well as do away with all causes we have for suffering, including sickness and death. Knowing this has always comforted me and it is my hope that these thoughts will comfort your family also. Additional comforting scriptures can be found at www.jw.org search:comfort.
