I met Parker at Exxon at Allandale where I spent all my teen years growing up and working for this family. I can't tell you how many times I have thought about him, Sandy, and Alan through the years. I adored him and I never wanted to make him mad or be disappointed in me. I wanted to make him proud. I have so much respect for him. What I would have given to have been able to hug him one more time. My prayers are with you all. Your family shares many of the memories of my youth. Love always,

I first met Parker in the early 80's in Mobile where our respective sons played baseball together. In fact, Parker was the coach for their T-Ball team. Our friendship continued throughout the elementary and secondary school years as the boys advanced through school and athletics.

I extend my sympathy and condolences to the family, and concur with the comment in Parker's obituary: he, indeed, was a kind and gentle man which belied his physical stature.

Mrs. Hill, Alen,
I want to express my condolences to you and your family for the loss of Mr. Hill. Parker was good to me at a time in my life that was so needed. He was a kind man with a soft voice. Years later, I enjoyed very much talking with him pre-game when Parker was playing for the Indians.
