My heart goes out to the family. Its been a long time since I've seen the Brickeys. When I was a young child I went to see them with LaRenda, his grand-daughter. They both seemed very sweet. I've always loved Nancy and the whole family and pray that God will get them though in this time of sorrow.
Michelle Nuckels and family
