To all the surviving generations of the Capps family,
We know each of you appreciates the wonderful legacy of a large family. You cannot help but wonder at the many lives that have been enriched by these 10 siblings. Our family has had great joy in knowing each brother and sister. Many of us are now saying, which one was Pete, Jay, Buddy and then, of course, our very own beloved Sukie? Our deepest sympathy on your loss of Dickie made even sadder by your recent loss of Pete. Thank you for sharing decades of love, laughter, life and memories with us.
The siblings and extended family of Lewis William Parham
