Not sure what to say?

Remembering Mr. Hicks as Principal of Brookville High when I graduated in 1968. Recently losing a mother to Parkinsons in 2011, I understand how very hard it is to lose a loved one. The days ahead will be difficult ones, but God gives grace. Just take one day (even one hour) at a time....don't rush grief. My prayers are with each member of the family.

I was a student at Brookville High when "Bobby", yes some of us girls called him that. He was fun and always made time for his students. Rest in peace "Bobby". You will be missed by many.

Grief can be so hard, but our special memories help us cope. Remembering you and your loved one today and always.

Bob Hicks was a rare treasure and I am grateful for the privilege of knowing him. May happy memories carry you through this sorrowful time. My prayers are with you.

It was my pleasure and privilege to know Mr. Hicks. He will be greatly missed by many.

Mr. Hicks was one of the most amazing men I have ever known. I first met him in elementary school when he was my principal. Then I had the privilege of working with him in courthouse square in Rustburg. I am so glad he was a part of my life. Rest in peace dear friend.

Many years ago our mother (Alberta Andrews) worked for the Hicks family and we have many memories. We are keeping all of you in our prayers.

I would like to express my sincere sympathy to the entire family. Mr. Hicks worked with my Mom at Brookneal Elementary school in the early 1960's. Our family has fond memories of that time. May God bless each of you during this difficult time.

Sorry for the loss of Mr. Hicks. He was my principal at Leesville Road Elementary School back in the 60's. He was a nice but firm man. I'll never forget him making me go back & walk...he didn't like us children running on the sidewalk. I thought that was so silly back then, but now that I'm a parent & grand parent, he only had our safety & best interest at heart. Praying for his family & friends during this time of sorrow.
