    A Family Christmas at Parker’s.  Each Christmas we enjoyed sharing a meal and visit with Uncle Cecil.  Christmas has always been about being with family for us Harrisons.  Parker’s BBQ is also a family tradition when we are together.

    I am sorry to hear of Cecil's passing. I have so many good memories of him. Jean was my cousin and we have had many a good meal at my Mama Pauline Hare 's home especially at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Also we started going to Little Washington to Mary Elizabeth's home for Christmas. We go to Wilmington to visit Cecil and Jean and Cash. He was a BIG MESS. He loved Jean and Cash and he loved his family. Church and church family and friends. He is no longer in pain or sick he is with Jesus and his Mama and Daddy, Jean. We will he him again.
