We were so sorry to see of Sam's passing. My husband's grandfather was Charles Wickard and his father's name was Harry E. Wickard. We live at 1121 Acre Drive in Chapel Hill and are sorry we never got to meet Sam or Goldie.

May God give you strength and comfort in the days ahead.

In Christian love,
Frank & Sue Wickard

AnnaMae & Family: When I was in my late teens wheeling concrete Sam saw my tongue hanging out. He said "I'll run the wheelbarrow for you" You run the truck and I will never forget that and that's how we become friends!! How did I know I was going to marry a neighbor girl of yours Clover Cornman Haycock!

Bill & Clover Haycock
Sorry to hear of your loss...my love and prayers to your family!
