I had the great privilege of visiting Ms. Bickley last semester for a class I was in at the University of Georgia. I was saddened to just recently learn of her passing, but I am comforted to have learned a great deal from her. I enjoyed hearing her stories of her time in Texas, her various travels, and the love she had for her husband, her family, and God...and Waffle House. No matter our conversations, whether sad or lighthearted, she always had such a great sense of humor, and persepective on life, and kept me laughing our entire visits! I will never forget my time with Ms. Bickley and I will keep the family in my prayers. Thank you for sharing her with me. Elizabeth Butler
