Billy Parks
The most kind and gentle soul -
The bravest heart
The broadest smile
The twinkling eye
He loved in style.

”It's a long, long road
From which there is no return
While we're on the way to there
Why not share?
And the load
Doesn't weigh me down at all
He ain't heavy, he's my brother.”
Alden
