I am very very very very very SAD about his passing. He entertained me and educated me, his wit and charm made laugh hundreds of times and he made my world a better place because I had a Spenser novel or 2 or 6 in my car or on my table. He made my world a better and happier place because of how well he expressed Spenser and Susan's love for each other and how he portrayed Hawk and the two incarnations of Pearl. My dog would turn around 8 times before picking

My heart is broken today for I feel that I have lost an old friend. Mr. Parker was an asset to his profession and will be sadly missed in the literary community. I was lucky enough to have had the pleasure of meeting this prolific author quite a few years ago when he gave a speech at the Haverhill Public Library. I have never forgotten his charm wit and the humbleness of his presentation. My very deepest sympathy goes out to his wife and family.
