I met Mrs. Hicks at Whitesburg Garden. She was a resident there and this was my first job as a CNA. Mrs. Hicks was so kind and so patient with me. I fell in love with her immediately! Her wit and sense of humor and the fact that she had the most tender spirit I have ever had the pleasure of knowing, has made a forever impact on me. She is missed dearly!

Mrs. Hicks was loved by everyone at Whitesburg. She shared her interesting history And sweet personality with us every day. She developed a special kinship with the therapy dog- whom she named” Lucky Dog”, and will be missed for her wit and wisdom. Although we have all suffered a loss- she achieved her grand desire to “ go home.”
