Lilburn, GA.- Parker Joshua Allen passed peacefully in the arms of his loving parents at 4:30 a.m. on Wednesday, July 27, 2011, three and 1/2 weeks after his birth on July 2, 2011, from complications of premature birth relating to lung development. He was one of two triplet sons born to Johanna and Ian Allen of 1473 Bristolwood Court, Lilburn Ga 30047. Parker is survived by his parents and his two remaining siblings, Layla Catherine Allen and Grayson Michael Allen, both of whom are still in the NIC Unit at Eastside Emory Hospital, where Parker passed. Survivors also include: his Paternal grand-parents, Tom & Debbie Allen; his Maternal grand-parents, Ron & Cathy Doeve; his Paternal great grand-parents, Tom and Dessi Allen; his Maternal great grand-mother, Florentina Boon; his uncle Sean Allen; his aunts and uncles, Claire & Brent Arledge and Meagan & Mark Heinold; as well as his cousins, Raegann & Brady Arledge. Joey and Ian would like to thank Drs. Ahmed and Rajasekaran, as well as the P.A.s, Nurses and Therapists at the NIC Unit at Eastside Emory Hospital for their efforts, compassion and support. Family members wish to extend their heartfelt gratitude for all of the prayers offered for Parker during his courageous fight, and we request, in lieu of flowers, that donations be made to The March of Dimes, at www.marchofdimes.com or to Ronald McDonald House Charity, at www.rmhc.org Sometimes, it's the smallest things that take up the most room in our hearts….
