My heart goes out to your family during this difficult time. I've known Mr Fickey since birth and spent many a day talking over my grandparent's (The Bratcher's) fence to him. He kept an eye out for me while I went to school at Little White Oak. His yard at Halloween was always awesome as a kid. I have very fond memories of your Dad and am so sorry to hear of his passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
