It is with deep
sorrow, regret and sadness that I say goodbye to a man that has
been a true friend to me,
and was what I like to call a 'favorite/beloved ' uncle to me, after my father passed away.
I must say that GM Sekwii Sha is like my second father now, so that is why I call Hanshi Parks
a beloved uncle figure... I would like to also express my condolences and sympathy to his beloved
family and students... For those that knew of him, but did not really know him, let me tell you that he
was a very soft spoken man, with a gigantic heart and would give you the shirt off his back if you
needed it, even though he needed it too...
He was that
true friend that would
laugh at your jokes even if they were not that funny, and
with your problems even if they were not that bad. He also was a Godly man that did truly believe in God,
and had true faith in every sense of the word. He will be truly, truly missed by us whom are left behind.
But, I find
comfort in knowing that he
is now in the Kingdom of Heaven
along with my father,
(as you can see in the picture my husband Bob did), my father is welcoming him into heaven.
With this loss, there is unfortunately another 'hole' in the soul of my father's beloved American Goju,
but know that he is once again 'training' with the best up there...Rest in peace Hanshi Parks...
I love you and will never forget you... OSS!!!!!!!!!!
