My beloved Rowenta iron that cost me a small fortune ($225.00 to be exact) the year Katrina hit has died. Services will be held Saturday December 1, 2012 at the home of Glenda and Frank Parks. The public is invited to share memories of their beloved irons and share the grief felt by the mourning couple.
"We have never had a more faithful servant," Mr. Parks stated in a taped interview earlier this week. "My Dockers will never be so well creased again!"
Mrs. Parks agreed, "Yes, that Rowenta was the best friend I ever had. It kept going and going and going, and never turned off. Will I ever find a better friend? My life is so empty feeling right now. And my shirt is so wrinkled, why did it have to leave us now? Oh, WHY?"
After years of service to the family's clothes, the Rowenta iron will be sent to Iron Heaven where it will have a place of honor among the lesser irons of the Parks' Family.
