My sincere condolences to the family of Doris Wickard. May you find comfort in your loving memories, and in God's promise to soon "swallow up death forever" and "wipe away the tears from all faces." (Isaiah 25;8) With deepest sympathy,
Our deepest sympathy to all. We will miss "Sis" very much.

A voice we love is stilled.
A place is vacant in your home,
Which never will be filled."
