  1. It’s been over two years now Buddy, and I can still see your smile, I still hear your belly laugh………..I still miss you little brother…….You are my hero……….you are my number one…..I love you………..I still just can’t understand why……….I love you…….carla

  2. I am a member of the Los Angeles Church of Christ International and I knew “Bud”. I didn\’t get to know him real well, I know that was a very kind and considerate man to everyone in the church. I will treasure the memories I have of him through the rest of my life. And I know that he is in Heaven with Jesus.

  3. Dearest Hicks family – I knew Bud through the Los Angeles Church of Christ. He was always giving to others in many ways, but I especially remember when he helped so lovingly with our preteens in their Sunday class. All of our love and prayers to your family.

  4. Bud and I were in the L.A. Church of Christ together, and I was privileged to go on a very fun date with him and two of our other friends to the beach in Redondo. I realized right away that he was a gentle and giving man. He will be greatly missed, but I am very happy for him that when he next opens his spiritual eyes he will be with God in Heaven.

  5. I am Buddys necie and well he was the greatest thing that happened to this familly he was always their when we needed hime and he never said no or would take no for an answer.But now whose gonna take me to the movies or sing dropit like its hot bye snoop dog???

  7. My heart feels so heavy from the loss of my dear friend and brother in Christ, but I am grateful to God that Bud was a part of my life….a huge blessing. He always knew how to make people laugh. He never hesitated to help someone in need. Whenever he saw someone who was feeling down, he would always make time to encourage them with kind words. I will miss him so much and never forget his gentle loving spirit. Nobody can replace Bud, but we can all learn from the life he lived and the love he so generously poured out. Bud overcame so many obstacles and inspired so many of us to be better human beings. My heart goes out to the whole family and I pray that you will be both strengthened and comforted in knowing that he is with God.

  8. I\’m sorry for your loss. I know it is not easy when we don\’t understand. I lost my brother and sister last year within 2 1/2 months. Time heals the pain and the memories are priceless. Cherish the memories. With Love, Pam

  9. To all Bud\’s family and friends. My heart,tears and prayers are for your comfort at the loss of such a great friend and Brother,Uncle,Son,and everything else he was to any one in his life. I met Bud through our bible talk over 9 years ago. He came into our lives (my husband Glen and children JamieLynne and Kristofer)with whole hearted devotion. His friendship over the years has brought us great joy and many fun and happy memories. He has been our beloved friend and “Teddy Bear” to our kids. We have been part of many double dates he has taken sisters on, we\’ve celebrated his many accomplishments with him. His great joy and love for others has carried on through the years. Even when he lived in Arizona and came back to LA with the “pimp mobile” we just laughed and laughed. His bear hugs could melt anyone. I used to have him give me a big hug to crack my back and called him Dr. Bud for his Chiropractic services. And he would come to our house and sit in the hot tub and talk to us for hours. “HOT TUB BUD” We will remember you forever till we meet again. Bud is in the arms of God now and will not fear or worry or hurt or regret anything ever again. His life is completed and those who loved and knew him will cherish the special man that he is. He was a man who loved much and gave all he had to those he loved too.

  10. To All Buds friends,family and brothers and sisters in Christ: Buds Mother and Father would like to thank each and everyone of you for your generosity, your compassion and tremendous out pouring of Love for Bud during this trying time for those he left behind!I know he will be sorely missed by all of us, but be comforted by the fact that he is loved by so many and was trying in so many ways to be pleasing in Gods eyes. I hope as he has, that all of this will be used as Roger and George said “to step up our game”, and to draw each other closer and strenghten your faith!xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

  11. \’\’MY LITTLE BROTHER\’\’ I want to thank ALL of you who came and shared your beautiful stories about my \’\’Little Brother\’\’. I used to tell all of my friends about my little brother, so when they finally got to meet him, imagine their surprise when they would see this giant of a man. They would laugh and say \’\’so thats your little brother, huh? I am going to miss tormenting him into giving me a reaction, it was a game with he and I since we were little. (and he really used to be) I used to call Buddy “Mr. Gruff”. But inside this giant of a man was a gentle loving person who couldn\’t hurt a thing. I will miss my litte brother. And I hope that he is now at peace.
