    Default Mrs. Parker needs your thoughts and prayers

    From Ed Parker Jr.

    "Greetings,

    I have been in Europe for the past month and have returned to find some sad news. My mother, Leilani Parker has been diagnosed with cancer and is not expected to live the next 6 months.

    I thought I would ask that this community keep her in your thoughts and prayers to help ease her journey with the rest of the time she has left here. She is in good spirits and is ok with her path, but none the less hard to learn of this news and the adjustments that will be coming in the near future.

    I wish those that know her, think of her and send her your well wishes. It is very much appreciated.

    Respectfully,

    Edmund K. Parker Jr."

    It's really hard to find out or to hear about, that someone who is so close to us is battling against the odds and that we pretty much know that we are going to loose them. Believe when I say to you..."I know this first hand", especally when it comes to sibblings or parents. My youngest brother was murdered six years ago and just recently I found out that my father has cancer also. So as I said before I know how you feel.

    I remember meeting your mother when I came to California my first time at the dojo. She welcomed me with open arms as I'm sure she does with everyone she meets. When she gave me a big hug and hello it was like recieving a hug from my own mother back home. I'll never forget that hug and I will never forget meeting her. It was surely a loving and lasting impression for me.

    I will make sure that I keep her in my prayers over and over again throughout the day, everyday. And also pray for you and the rest of your family's comfort through these troubled times.

    If you need a freind to talk to Ed/Chuck, please don't hestitate to pick up the phone and call me. 1-519-438-6167.

    Your freind and may God let you find peace and comfort...

    Life begins and life ends it is simply the way of thigns, she is not lost, so long as she is remembered well.

    I do not pray, but I hope that your mourning is short as you remeber all that she is.. will always be with you.


    I went into the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life...to put to rout all that was not life; and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.
