All of us at Catholic Family News are saddened by the loss of Dr. Robert David Hickson, Jr., who departed this world on September 2. Dr. Hickson was an outstanding scholar and teacher and a great supporter of the Catholic faith and liturgy of all ages. He and his wife, CFN contributor Dr. Maike Hickson, have ten children and currently 27 grandchildren. He died a holy death having been fortified by the Last Sacraments and traditional prayers of the Church. There is a beautiful obituary written by his wife and family available online https://www.endersandshirley.com/obituary/robert-hickson-jr.
