1 thought on “Christi Luann Parker”

  1. The last time Christy and I messaged one another we talked about my stopping by the next time I came through the area. I had not seen her since leaving Starkville many, many years ago. I had the pleasure of running into her around 1995 while my daughter and I were attending a Ray Boltz concert in Tupelo, MS. She had brought several youths from her church to the concert. How I wish I had made that time to stop by and see her. Learning of her death makes me more aware of how short time can be and how we need to take the time to spend with loved ones and friends.

    My heart goes out to her family and friends. My prayers to all.
