Dear Mrs. Hicks, We are deeply saddened to hear of Mr. Hicks death. He was such a lovely man with a sweet spirit that shown through no matter how sick he was. I vividly remember my last visit with you both during one of his hospitalizations. His smile was ever so present even during his illness.

I know you have great comfort knowing he is resting in the arms of our wonderful savior. We will continue to keep you and your family in our prayers.
