Bob, My sympathies to you and your family. It is said that the greatest legacy a person leaves is their children. Certainly your parents have left their lasting legacy. "Eternal rest grant unto them oh Lord and let perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls and all the souls of the faithfully departed through the mercy of God rest in peace."
