Dear Parker Family: Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. I know that this is a hard time for your family. There is comfort to be found through the pages of the Bible. Acts 24:15 and Philippians 4:6,7 help us to see that there will be a time that our loved ones will be resurrected to life here on earth and that until that time God will be our source of comfort because he is the God of Peace and he will guard our hearts and minds in this time of need. I hope these promises from the bible provide you with some comfort. Again, I am sorry for your loss.

As Ernest pastor for 9 1/2 years no man ever touched me as deeply as Ernest Parker. We ministered countless miles together and now he has his rest and reward. A Man of God!!!
