Expressing my deepest love and sympathy to the Hickey family. I had not seen Ms. Della’s sweet face in 30 years, but the impact she had on me at that time was forever. She showed me what kindness and unconditional love looked like. She loved her children and one grandson at that time beyond measure. Lord knows that Timmy and her had such a special bond which was so admirable. These shared pictures show me that she had a full loving life and that puts a smile on my face. Thank you for sharing this celebration of Ms. Della’s life! Loving memories forever. Love Denise❤️

So sorry for your loss. Mrs Hickey was always so kind to me and my family. As you know, my Mom was especially close to her and each one of you are considered a part of our extended family. I have been praying for the family and will continue to pray that you will be comforted by the hand of our Lord. Sending love to all.
