Name: Maylon Rice
Message: Cliff, Mike and Charlie: Your mom was one of a kind. She was indeed a friend to a legion of us kids growing up in Warren. And she never forgot us. In good times, here would come a card of encouragement in the mail. It was the same when our luck seemed to be sour, an encouraging card or a phone call would come from her to cheer us up. She was a great librarian at that tiny little library on the courthouse lawn years ago. She would insist we read the good and important books to enrich our lives. Sadness fills my heart, as I am sure it does yours and others close to her family circle. She will be missed by me, but never forgotten for all she did. She was a true friend and a true Southern Lady.

Message: I am so sorry to hear about Ms. Wickie. We lived beside her for quite some time on Myrtle Street. My boys were small at the time, and she and Mr. Morgan would always help watch out for them.

Message: I was very saddened to her of "Ms Wickie's" passing. She was such a BIG part of my mother's happiness during her days in Warren. I think back to the days of coming home after school and one thing you didn't do was INTERRUPT Bobbie when she was on the phone to Ms. Wickie!!!! I can close my eyes and see her on the front row on the right side of First Presbyterian Church every Sunday morning. It was somehow a comforting sight!!! To all the Morgans, Im sorry I can't be there in person to convey my condolences.....Jim Hurley III

Name: Chris Laney
Message: I met Wickie after my sister Erin married Michael. But I really got to know Wickie a few years later. I was going through a pretty difficult time in life, and Wickie was going through a tougher time, but she welcomed me into her home for Thanksgiving. Her combination of warmth, generosity, and biting wit was so much fun to be around. It meant more to me than I probably ever expressed to her, but she was so wise that I’m sure she knew anyway (I got the feeling that not much got past her!). Thank you Wickie – we will miss you.
