Mary Ann Parker

Very touching article: http://www.mercurynews.com/ci_14250665

Mary Ann Parker is John Peckham's mother. In 2006, John was killed in Palo Alto by a speeding intoxicated driver during the "noon ride". Three years later, his mother died of a broken heart.

This has been a tragic story the entire way. Words can not express how I feel about it.

As a cyclist, the wife of a cyclist, the mother of a cyclist, a human being, this is too sad for words.

That's very, very sad! I still remember news footage of what remained of John's bike after the accident...
