    Kay was the first grandchild born in the Parker family The first born is always special and she certainly was her entire life. She was lovely inside and out, a joy to be with. Kay has left a beautiful legacy of love, devotion, and laughter to her beloved family. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Jane Parker and family
