My Aunt Alean was such a special lady and my life has been enriched just by knowing her. She is no longer with us and I miss her terribly. I have so many good memories of time spent with her. She loved her country music shows and detective shows and I loved to pack my suitcase and go spend the weekend with her. We would grab something to eat and head to her house to kick back and fix ourselves a coke float and watch her favorite shows. Memories that I now have to treasure. After her husband died she moved back to her home town and we became close. I liked to tell her she was an original Hicksie Chick and she would always be a Hicksie Chick cause she like us was born with the last name Hicks. My only regret is that I didn't know her longer.
My sister took her out to eat one day where they ordered Reubens and she loved it! Doesn't this bring a smile to your face? Take time out of your busy lives to spend time with the older generation. Aunt Alean was blessed with many who loved her and I am so thankful she got to spend time in her last days with the Hicksie Chick side of her family as well as the Mast side. She was one special lady and I miss her daily!
