CJ and Tey Memorial Family Fund

This is hard to write. My best friend/brother for 25 plus years (SSGT Terrence Hicks USMC Retired and his wife Jess Hicks) lost his 2 sons Sunday Night. The boys, 7-year-old Cleveland Hicks and 8-year-old Terrence Hicks, went bike riding on private property and did not return home when they were expected, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol. Concerned, family members went searching for the boys. Terrence found Cleveland floating in the private pond in the 400 block of Walls Ford Road just after noon Sunday. Divers then found Terrance shortly after.

Both boys were pronounced dead later in the day at the hospital. Like all the fathers in this group, he loved Kids, God, family, country, and Trucks. To lose your 2 boys and to be 3 days before Christmas has been devastating. I have only heard this guy cry 2 times in life. First time when he lost his mom and 2nd time today when we talked. I am posting this to help raise money for his family for their funeral and medical expenses. I appreciate the time each of you has taken to read this.
