Loockerman St., Dover. Capone's daughter Laura is married to Coast Guard Petty Officer First Class ]amar ]ones. They are stationed in Elizabeth City, N.C. Laura was reared and educated in Dover, and Linda had a teaching career at William Henry Middle School. Linda received a call last La- bor Day weekend that Parker had been diagnosed with leu- kemia. After a battery of tests, Parker's diagnosis changed to severe aplastic anemia, a disease that's fatal unless a bone marrow transplant can be done. After several rounds of che- motherapy at Duke Hospital in Durham, N.C., Parker received a bone marrow transplant from his 1-year-old sister. It was a perfect match. Although he is recover- ing at home in Elizabeth City, he requires weekly appointments at Children's Hospital in Norfolk, Va. "While his prognosis is en- couraging, his military family is dealing with medical costs as well as travel and living expens- es during this situation," said Senft, an active member of Kent County Chapter 850, Vietnam Veterans of America. He introduced Parker to the chapter in 2012 by volunteering him as the bell ringer during the reading of names on the memo- rial for several events at Kent County Memorial Park. "Parker was such a hit that the chapter made him an honorary member and sent him a chapter challenge coin when we found out he was hospitalized," said chapter Vice President Paul Da- vis. Tickets are only $8. The event will include music by D] Pat Premier from Washington, D.C., who is donating his service, and an auction. Call 302-736-1338 or email for more information.
