Mom I know life hasn’t been easy for you from beginning to end, you are a tough and great lady. But at least you are out of all the pain. You know the Jimmy Dean song “I LOVE YOU” that about says it all . For everything I owe you, you would mark it paid in full for 3 short words “ I LOVE YOU” So mom Thank you for all you did for me and my family and I have 3 last words “ I ❤️ You” Your son Dan Logan Parker and family xoxo
