RALEIGH –Emma Revels Parrish, 90, passed away July 7, 2018, in the SECU Hospice House in Smithfield surrounded by her family following a period of declining health.

    Belinda, Pam, and Terry,
    I am so sorry for your loss. Your mother was a sweet, kind, and great lady. I miss her now. I remember her, your dad, and you when your family lived just down the street from me. I would still talk with her on the phone after you moved to Greenbrier.
    Belinda, remember riding our new bikes at Christmas, across frozen Parkers Pond !? And hiding in the bathroom in first grade, running from a group of kids for some forgotten reason?
    Pam, I remember you when you came along. I thought of you as a smaller version of pretty Belinda
    Terry, my mother and I always treasured your visits when you became a young man. You and I would sometimes talk about cars. I remember you as a toddler, licking cake batter off the mixer’s (turned off and removed !) blades.
    Love and good thoughts to you all.
    John Sullivan
