    I shall always remember the laughter of Pastor Hicks. Memories of when he and Mary pastored in Shawano are rich and sweet.

    Miss Mary and family,
    We are sad for the loss of Brother Bill for you and your family but so happy for him sitting at the feet of Jesus now. We know without a doubt where he is. Such a man of God with a sweet heart and the love of Jesus all over him. I loved hearing him share all the history he knew about the Bible. We will continue to pray for you Mary and your family. We love you. Bobby and Vickie Cox

    I was very sad to hear about Pastor Hicks passing, but joyful to know he is in the presence of the Father. He and Mary were always a pleasure to be around at First Assembly in Hobbs. Deepest sympathy and prayers to the Hicks family.
