One of the most unrecognized (by choice) contributions a Mason/Shriner makes is to drive deserving children to Shriner Hospital appointments. Dave was one of those unrecognized heroes of this service. We are forever grateful for that service to our family. RIP, Mr. Parker and thank you. Our deepest condolences to Mrs. Parker for your loss.
