  1. Phil, Dennis and family,
    I was sorry to hear of Mr. Hydrick passing and offer my condolences to the entire family.

  2. Uncle Ray was like a daddy to me and I will miss him here on earth ,but, know Aunt Mary and Mama and Daddy are with him now. They knew each other forever and even served together at Fort Gordon. Times were hard growing up and I know Uncle Ray helped Mama and Daddy every way he could. Remember as you go thru all of this as a family that all things are possible with God’s help. Prayers everyday for all of my cousins! Love, Kathy

  3. Have lots of wonderful memories of growing up in the 50s and 60s on Vaucluse Rd and the Hydricks were all a part of our “Happy Days” there. Mr. Hydrick was such a respected “Southern Gentleman”!! Many of us have deep roots from the good people on that road and we KNOW and look forward to being with all of our loved ones AGAIN from that street and NEVER have to say Farewell again – Thinking of you all – Phil, Dennis, Louisa and Marsha !!! Love, Judy (Brewer) Weeks
