I'm sorry for your loss. Please accept my prayers that you still have caring supportive family and friends: many forget that grief is a long process - years and decades, not months.
I'm saddened to hear not only of his passing, but of his long illness. I am grateful to those who where able to help and comfort him during his illness.
With fond memories of the days at Safeway Store #400...

I am so very sorry for your loss. I have so many very fond memories of Mr. Hicks..or "Wild Bill"... as we affectionately called him at the Safeway International Store on Cary St. here in Richmond. May he rest in peace.

Dear Juanita, Marie and family, our heartfelt sympathy is with you all now and will be in the future. I feel so honored to have met your Father and get to know him over the years and know how much you will miss him. I know that he would want you all to remember him with all the good times in your life and know that he is in a much better place today without any pain. We love you all. Bobby & Betty
