    Life...ever changing...our thoughts, prayers and heart felt sorrow share in your ( our ) grief. Since 1961, I have had nothing but respect for the Parks Family. As a friend and classmate of Andre, I've visited Andre and Linda in North Little Rock, long conversations with Mr Harold and Mrs Parks for Class Reunions; learned more of the LOVE this family shared. The talents amazed me, Knowing the foundation is strong puts my spirit at ease. Has Yohanna's spirit meets those who on earth were her greatest LOVE... The Booker T, Washington Dream Class of "69" extends cherished memories , deep sorrow and sympathy in the transition of our little sister. Peace be with you.
