To all my friends around the world.
We are sad to announce that our incredible, wild and loving mother has passed away after battling a recently discovered form of cancer.
Surrounded by her closest family, she fights with vigor and reassures us of her unending enthusiasm for life and all the adventures to come. As iconic as she was on screen, she was an even more amazing mother and grandmother.
We are grateful for the care of the wonderful team of doctors and nurses at Moffitt Cancer Center.
The joie de vivre and enthusiasm of our mother, her children, grandchildren and her many animals, and her undying joy of creating are unmatched and inspire us to enjoy life as much as she did.
We thank you for your love and prayers, and ask you to respect our privacy during this difficult time. Love you forever, True and Lillie Parker.
