We met Mr. Wickline in 1978, when we rented a brand new apartment at 95 Mark Place. It was a great place to live and any interaction we had with him was wonderful -- he was a very nice man and proud of his family and his profession. Much later, I had his great grandson Elijah as a student at my preschool ... loved making another family connection. God bless you all.

Dad, you were always there for me and taught me good values. You were a caring man and one whom I always looked up to. I will continue to love and miss you daily, until we meet again. While your song here on earth, may have come to a close... your melody, and your memories, will live on in the depths of my heart forever, and also deep in the hearts of your family, and many friends whose lives you touched along your journey. God bless you Dad, you are, and will always be, sorely missed.
