This is my dear little sister Crystal Dulaney Parker and my dad Lawrence Lowell Dulaney. In my mind this picture is a classic example of 1970's culture. In this era I was listening my dad play "Take this Job and shove it!" by Johny Paycheck, "Luckenbach Texas" by Wayon Jennings along with a mix of Charlie Pride, Merle Haggard, Tammy Wynette, and Dads favorite George Jones to name a few. But if you would listen close, real close, in the background you could hear a faint brush of angel wings flying in the mist of Ace Cannon's "Yakety Sax. The heavenly sounds were in the form of a child's Fisher Price record player, playing "London Bridge", a 45 vinyle playing the Disney story "Lady and the Tramp" , or picture of pure beauty and love singing "Mon chi chi Mon chi chi, Oh So very Cuddly", while rattling her plastic pots against her tin kitchen set.
But as the the forces met ,the spirit of angels would overcome the sound of Merle. My dad could walk in wearing the classic 70's silk shirt with 3 buttons down showing his 18",18k gold, rope chain, He wore a 14k gold horse shoe ring with matching belt buckle on a 2"wide leather belt, engraved with roping cowboys ,and "Lowell" on the back. His classic Elvis Hair style, along with his waterproof timex watch ,that was held by 2"wide leather watch, would prove no match for the glow of a childs presence. When Crystal Dawn was lifted to the cheek of her dad there was not enough gold in the world that could outshine her smile. Dressed in a puffy dress and bonnet, or just a cloth diaper, she had the ability captivate your heart.With her totally innocent smile ,witty charm and hair as smooth as corn silk, she took the show.
Lowell is the son of Lawrence Orr Dulaney and Pearl Johnson Dulaney that lived in East Fulton. Crystal is married to a wonderful man Lane Parker. Together they have 2 children, Kara Dawn Parker and Kohlton Lane Parker. The Parkers live in Dennis Ms.
