  1. To the entire family of Chris Hickman I send my sincere condolances. I may not have been a part of your lives but I have had the blessings of being a part of some of his family in Lake Charles for fifty years. I do know through them what a loving and special man Chris has been to all of them. Every word or story was full of goodness and Christian actions about his life. I can only send my thoughts and meager words to say I am sorry for you all. May God be with each of you as you feel this incredible loss.
    An old friend,

    • Sam and Paula, it is with sadness we learned of the passing of
      Chris. Our prayers and love are with you at this time. Chris was
      an outstanding student while in our school always cooperative
      and a blessing to be around. I kept up with Chris through
      his grandfather, Red and was proud of his accomplishments
      after high school. God bless you all, Brother Randall and
      Sue Chesson, Parkview Christian School, Sulphur, La.

      • Randall & Sue,
        Thank you for your special thoughts of Chris. He was a wonderful son (so kind, thoughtful, and loving), husband, and father to two loving daughters. God used him many times sharing his faith and what Christ did for them. He is now with his Savior and we look forward to being with him one day. We know that your school certainly played a part in his Christian growth along with his continuing study of God’s Word throughout his life. Chris finished the race here on earth, never giving up.
        In Christ,
        Sam & Paula Hickman

  3. To Sam and Paula and family,

    Cheryl and I are deeply saddened to learn of Chris’ passing. Our daughter Laurie, who we lost in 2002, were great friends threw the late 80s and early 90s. The years & miles separate us, but God has a way of crossing our paths in strange ways. Please know that we know what you feel at a time like this and our thoughts and prayers are with you.

    • Cheryl and Bill,
      Thank you for your special thoughts and prayers. We are so glad Laurie and Chris were friends. We will always miss our children. We have the blessing of knowing Chris is now with his Savior, in a much better place and will be with him one day.

  4. So sorry to hear about Chris. Josie and I will keep you’re family in our prayers. Some of the best times growing up were spent working with Chris at Smoothie King in Lake Charles while going to school. He was a great guy always made me laugh. He will be missed.

  5. Beth,
    Thank you for your wonderful thoughts. We will miss Chris terribly, but his suffering is over and he is with his Savior whom he put his faith in when he was 7 yrs. old, maturing as a Christian as he studied and obeyed God’s Word.
    God used him in a great way – telling in a kind and loving way how Christ died, was buried, and resurrected for them providing eternal life by putting their faith in Him. Chris was blessed in so many ways esp. with a loving family. He had a good life here on earth finishing the race – never giving up. We look forward to being with Chris one day.
    Love, Sam & Paula
