I will miss these guys more than words can ever say. They made each and every morning, at work, so much brighter! Alison...

You all. We need prays. There are no words for how we are feeling right now. Please keep the families of my friends in your thoughts.

This is the first time I am getting to social media. The past few hours have been unimaginable. Thank you to everyone...

In a series of tweets, Parker's boyfriend, anchor Chris Hurst, called the young reporter "the most radiant woman [he] ever met," adding that they "were very much in love."
