Our mother/mother-in-law, Bettie Hicks, the daughter of Alice Collins McNear and Jerauld's first cousin, always loved the chance to see him on his occasional trips to Ohio. I, Bill, can remember his visits and what a wonderful story teller and man he was. He will be remembered and missed. Our deepest sympathy, Bill and Gretchen Hicks
