Margaret Dare, Rex, Doug, Amy and all the Family,
We were so saddened to learn of Pops' passing yesterday morning. I have many memories from all the Wicker and Graham reunions during my lifetime, especially the ones of "Aunt Katie & Uncle Back's family and ours since we had the distinction of being "double cousins". During the past few years while Pops has been fighting his battle, we've loved all the Facebook posts from Doug and Rex showing him always smiling big and seeming to enjoy life. My mama and her siblings, his siblings and a WHOLE BUNCH of WICKERS have welcomed him "home" with loving embraces. Treasure all your precious memories.
Love and Prayers to each of you.
Kim & Ashleigh
Breanne, Jeremy & Aubree

Mimi, Rex, Doug, Amy and Wicker family members, Ron and I are so sad that Pops is no longer with us, but remembering the good times before that terrible disease brings us joy. Pops was the sweetest and kindest man and he was a good Christian man who will be with all of you every day in your heart. He will surely be looking down on you with pride. Ron and I have missed him for a long time but now we can remember him fondly the way he used to be.
