Gary parnelll was my father and he died when i was only 11 so if you say he deserved to die your crazy because I am now 13 and he didnt get to see me grow into a young woman and didnt get to share the joy of having to new grandbabies born in the two recent years after his death.he wasnt perfect but he had people that lovedand cared for him alot and he took care of his 4 real kids very good.Nobodys perfect and you shouldnt talk about a person that can no longer defend himself.
