My sincere condolences to the family of Jane Parker. Jane was a dear friend and super pal during our days of high school in Greensboro and my days in college at Georgia. She was always fun and laughs, making all of us enjoy life a little bit more. Jane epitomized a small town girl who knew and loved everyone...and, everyone loved her. I haven't seen Jane in quite a few years, but the memories we shared growing up in Greene County will be with me forever.

Yes, those days and Jane are gone, but her spirit and our fun times will live on in my heart and the hearts of others for a long, long time. God rest her soul and may we enjoy more good times on the other side of life.

Your best pal, Slick

Joe,Mandy and Family, I am so sorry for your loss. Jane was such a fun person. I have great memories of Lake Sinclair, Jane loved the lake. I remember Jane once had a sporty green and white Pontiac and I would get her to pick me up and ride around town. We thought we were something! Rest in peace Jane, it is long overdue.
