Freda and family, so sorry this is late. Dad Leon Hicks was in hospital and in ICU when I saw in paper..I did let him know. He had a bad day the day of Dick's service. I didn't want to leave. You were in our thoughts and prayers...we did have many good times together camping and it was good always running into each other at 99 or C&R restaurants. Dad is up with the gang. He passed on the 22nd.
