Sorry to hear of Parker Sain's passing.

I can't say Parker and I were buddies, but I can't think of a time I saw him that he did not have a big grin and seemed pleased to see me. For some reason, that was enough to make me feel the same about him.

He called and came over about a year ago to talk about what organic farming meant and listened intently. I have no idea if we were on the same page or if he agreed, but I appreciated his sincere interest to learn.

Debbi and I will miss seeing him around town and passing him almost daily. Our condolences to his family and the rest of us who enjoyed his contagious smile.

I have to agree. He was a staple around Bell Buckle and Bedford county and I will miss seeing his truck around town.

I've known Parker since I was about 3 or 4 years old. He was always so much fun. He really liked goofing around with us kids. I wish I had seen him more in the past few years.

I went to school with Parker and his sister Betty. I spent a lot of time with both of them. Parker was the typical big brother. We could always count on him to be around to kid/aggravate Betty and me. It was never done in a mean way and he always kept us in stitches. I talked to Parker about a month ago and he was his usual happy self. Although, there hasn't been much contact with him through the years I will miss him but he gave me many happy childhood memories. God speed Parker. I'm sure you will be sharing that smile with all that you meet in Heaven.
