Condolences for the family of “Thomas Kevin Hickson”

Condolence from Richie Obriant on June 2nd, 2014 12:00 am

The whole O’Briant family is so grieved to learn of Tom’s passing. We all loved him so much and thought of him as one of the few ‘real gentlemen’ on the earth. Jamie is especially sad because he thought of Tom as his Poppy too. We all have fond memories of his smile and wonderful sense of humor. Our prayers are that you will know God’s grace as you celebrate Tom’s life and that you rejoice in knowing you will see him again one day.
