I worked with Mary @ Sacred heart home, always looked forward to having lunch with her. The stories she told & the love for her children and grandchildren were with enormous love. Will miss that warm heart & smile.

Brother Morris and all of Mary Sue's family, May you find comfort in God, as we can read in His Holy Bible: "Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God." (2 Cor. 1:3-4) Mary Sue was such a wonderful and nice person. She will be sorely missed.

I've known Mary and Morris Wicker and their families for over 40 years. You just couldn't ask for nicer people. Stephanie helped take care of me after my hip replacement. Mary always had a smile and aways asked how my family was doing. She was one of a kind I still remember her and Peggy and Minnie getting together to play Euchre. My heart goes out to all of you along with my prayers.

I remember when I was about 12 years old, Mattie and Mary Sue (about 15 yrs old) came down to Liza and Tandy's and asked me to walk to the store with them and get an ice cream. Its funny how you never forget acts of kindness. I always remembered how sweet they both were!
