Parkers - 40 Years - Page Text Content

S: 4 Decades in Review


1: Who knew in the summer of 1971, when you heard a strange noise outside your window and Noelene opened your door only to find your neighbor's 3 year old niece pounding the side of your new home with a rock, that it would be the beginning of a beautiful friendship which would span 40 years - and still counting!! We have shared many emotions during that time . . . laughter, celebration, elation, hopes, dreams, and tears, but most of all love. Whether we talk and see each other every day, or not for months at a time, we always pick up where we left off without skipping a beat. That, Marty and Chuck, is the test of true friendship. The pictures in this book are just a sampling of the good times we have shared.. May there be many more in the decades to come. Enjoy!!

26: A final montage of memories

27: One of my earliest and fondest memories isn't chronicled in this book. I guess back in the 70's, we were more interested in living life for the moment rather than taking pictures to recall experiences 30 or 40 years down the road. It was our first trip to the newly opened Salt Fork State Park. We made it as far as east Toledo and Popoff's Restaurant before the party began. I recall several hours and many hot peppers and beers later, driving up the long road to the lodge around midnight, and then proceeding to have one of the best weekends of our lives. Marty. . . you have given me several inspiring books over the years about friendship. There is a quote in one of them, "Always a Friend", that truly applies to the four of us: As gold more splendid from the fire appears, thus friendship brightens by the length of years. Thank you both for brightening our lives over the last 4 decades. We love you. Linda and Gary
