    I am sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences. I hope the family will find some comfort and strength in Jesus promise of the earthly resurrection(Acts 24:15)and the renewed Paradise earth, where death will be no more and no family will mourn the death of a loved one.-Revelation 21:3,4;John 5:28,29;Luke 23:43. may GOD(Psalms 83:18)grant you peace and comfort now, during this grievous time.-Matthew 5:4.

    We're sorry to read of the passing of Mr. Parker, Sr. It's never easy to lose someone in death. It's fitting that the Bible says death is an enemy. Almighty God Jehovah through his Son Jesus offers hope. Jesus said at John 11:25,25 " I am the resurrection and the life." Jesus resurrected Lazarus the brother of Mary and Martha. I hope this is comforts your family in your time of deep sorrow. Knowing the God feels your pain and offers comfort and hope. Again our condolences.

    Parker Family, It broke my heart to hear about Jimmy.I have many great memories of working with him and his brother Jesse at Weyerhaeuser. He loved his family dearly and he adored you Shirley. We talked so much about you guys at work. Keep making him proud kids and remember he is now an Angel of God still looking down and watching over all of us. May God wrap his arms around all of you and carry you through . You all are in my thoughts and prayers. Rest in Peace my friend. Love, Vic

    To the family of Mr. Jimmy Lee Parker, Sr. We were so very saddened to learn about your loss. Fortunately, death is only a temporary part of life. Jesus promised us a wonderful resurrection of the dead (John 5:28,29/1 Thessalonians 4:13, 14), so we have the hope of being reunited with our deceased loved ones. In the meantime, even though the pain of loss through death may seem sometimes insurmountable, rest assured that God will give you the strength necessary to endure the difficult days ahead (Psalm 46:1). Please accept our deepest sympathy and sincere condolences.

    I have many fond memories of working with Jimmy and Jessie in the Machine Room. He was a good friend and a good Union leader. Although we lost touch over the years, we we did meet he was the same old Jimmy, as happy and entertaining as ever. He loved a good joke and always had a story to tell. May he rest in peace with the Lord.

    Those we love leave us gifts in the form of memories that no one can take away. Wisdom that we can still recall. These are the things that we will cherish forever. May the family continue to look to Almighty God for comfort during this most stressful time since "He is close to the brokenhearted. He saves those who are crushed in spirit." Psalm 34:18. My condolence to you

    My condolences and prayers to the Parker family. I had the honor and privilege of working with Jimmy and Jesse at Weyerhaeuser for a number of years. We spent a lot of time together on shift..in the trenches..to a point where these guys were like family to me. I was saddened to hear of the tragic loss of such a great friend and family member. He will be surely missed by anyone's who's life he touched. Rest easy, brother.
