Our deepest sympathy on the loss of Bert, and our sincere condolences to the extended Fick Family. Remember, there are stars in the Universe whose radiance is visible here on Earth long after they themselves are gone. And there are sons, husbands, brothers, and fathers ? who continue to light our World though they themselves are no longer with us. When the nights are dark, these lights are particularly bright. You need only go to the backyard in the still evenings, and look up. There he is. gsc
