    Helen, you will be forever in my heart. You were always my "voice of reason." You were one of the kindest and caring people I knew. I was lucky to have you on my life journey. Pray for us. Love you and miss you Karen

    Miss Helen was the best teacher I ever had. She was my 8th grade teacher at OLSS. She was very, very kind to me and I have often thought about her over the years. I am so sorry for your loss. Miss Helen accomplished the mission God sent her on and now she is with our Lord. My prayers will be with her family. Kathie Brady, Cypress, Texas

We Offer the Book of Memories™

Parsels Funeral Home offers what we consider to be the finest example of online memorials, the Book of Memories™. Created by an award-winning team of web developers and designers while being led by a funeral professional with over 25 years of experience, this online memorial is intended to provide your family with a permanent place to pay tribute to your loved one.

Far more than a traditional obituary—which is usually published only once and has no interactivity at all—the Book of Memories™ Memorial Website is a fully interactive archive of treasured photographs and stories remembered from their time spent with friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers.

You’ll be able to invite others to visit the online memorial, where they can upload images, share stories, write heart-felt messages of condolence, send a floral tribute to the funeral, or make a charitable donation in memory of your loved one. And the built-in social media integration means they can then “spread the word” about their addition to your loved one’s Book of Memories™ using Facebook and Twitter.

We offer the families we serve a Book of Memories™ memorial website with the intention that it gives you a measure of solace and comfort during the coming months. To arrange for a Book of Memories® memorial website for your loved one, contact us today.
