Trooper, it’s been 15 years now since you gave your all for the state of South Carolina. A lot has changed in this world but a lot has stayed the same. I’m at Skinner Rd and 527 as I have been for 14 years as a token of respect to you. I know you’ve been watching over the ones of us still on the line and holding the walls. For that I thank you. You sir will not be forgotten by me or my family. As I’ve said before, I’m sorry I couldn’t beat the dragon. RIP Trooper.........and thank you Mrs. Brewer I know God is in control and over the years he has assembled only the best to patrol heavens streets of gold.

Thank you, Rudy and Lin, for not forgetting our precious Jon. I am confident that he is with the Lord and that we will see him again one day.
Y’all rest easy. You did all you could do for Jon but God had another plan. We don’t understand it, but faith trumps fear! God’s Grace is sufficient.

It's been 13 years today brother. You have definitely not been forgotten and we miss you all of the time. I see Susan and she tells me that she found your green hunting light that I talk about you wearing coming out of the swamp. Keep patrolling those streets of gold and we will see you again one day.

It's been 12 years today that South Carolina lost one of its protectors. I'm sitting at Skinner Rd and 527, the same location I've come back to for the past 11 years out of respect for you and the ultimate sacrifice you gave to this state. The prayers for your family have been given and that day in May 2005 have been replayed yet again. Your EOW has been recorded but I know you are still riding with the ones of us that are still holding the line and protecting the walls. Thank you Trooper and RIP brother. As always I'm sorry I wasn't able to successfully fight the flames.

Trooper Parker its been awhile. I was only about 7 or 8 when you passed but I still remember it like it was yesterday. They gave me a bracelet with your name on it and I always wear it. The years have past but you have not been forgotten. Dad still tells old police stories about you and the guys. I'm grown now and starting law enforcement. Just trying to make a difference like you guys did.

You were my neighbor, my friend and my trainer at times. I rode with you many a night as a reserve I learned from you and about you.

I am still blessed after all these years to have met you and I know that you are truly missed by many. RIP Trooper.
