Beth and family,
I am so sorry and wanted you to know how much I thought of your Dad. He was one of the first people I met at Ft. Campbell and was always such a gentleman. He loved FCS and all his students and teachers--always so passionate about his profession. He loved you and your Mom so much too and would always say such nice things about you. He will be greatly missed but we will all see him again one day. May God keep you in his arms in the days and weeks to come. Love, Debbie Hadley

Beth I am so sorry for your loss. Your dad was a wonderful man and will be missed by so many. He always had a smile for me when he came to G's for lunch. He brightened my day with his visits and he was so encouraging when I went back to school to get my teaching degree.

I wish to express my sincerest sympathy to the Hicks family and friends because of losing James recently in death. When our loved ones fall asleep in death, the pain and grief seems unbearable. Our loving God, Jehovah (Psalm 83:18), understands how we feel and he comforts us by means of his word the Bible. Psalm 34: 18 tells us: "Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit." Jehovah invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection. (John 5:28, John 6:40 and John 11:23-25) Also, Titus 1: 2 tells us this promise of a resurrection: "is based on a hope of the everlasting life that God, who cannot lie, promised long ago." Isaiah 26:19 "Your dead will live......And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life." Isaiah 25:8 "He will swallow up death forever. For Jehovah himself has spoken it." For more comforting scriptures please visit: It has given me hope, strengthened my faith and helped me find the answer to Why? I know it will do the same for you. Again, the family is in my prayers and I offer my heartfelt condolences. Feel free to contact me if you wish at my email address;
I pray it will bring you comfort to please watch this faith strengthening video: "Can The Dead Really Live Again?"
