Norman "Red" & Mary Marcy

 
Whenever I run into friends from Parker, we always seem to just reminisce and reflect on the past. Recently a few of us were recalling the different school chums whose families owned their own businesses in Parker, i.e., Parker Theatre, Branding Iron Cafe, Haile's Barber Shop, Johnson's Western Wear, Norris' Market, to name a few.

I showed up at his house, in Northwest Phoenix, February 12, 2009 at 6:30 P.M. He met me at his front door, with the enthusiastic greeting, “Hi Dina, come on in.” I had not seen Mr. Thurman Simmons since June 1966, yet there he stood, just like I remember him, cool, calm, confident, just as down to earth as ever.
