Pastor Paul & Mayme Bickes were like grandparents to my husband. Paul Bickes was Ricky’s pastor at Stuart Church of the Nazarene in the ’90s and even after we got married, we shared great times and relived memories with them.
Mayme passed away in August of 2007 and I’m sad to say that Pastor just passed away this week. Though we shouldn’t be sad at all – his life was the definition of a life fulfilled through Jesus Christ.
Pastor Paul went into the ER two weeks ago because of an infection. It turned out he had pneumonia, but they also discovered that he had congestive heart failure. Due to the infection, his body was too weak to handle them treating his heart issues. By Tuesday the 21st, his kidneys and liver were shutting down and hospice was called. He died without pain and comfortably with family around him on Thursday the 23rd.
For those of you who knew him, Dotty, Mark, Sarah and the rest of their family have asked us to pass on the word that they would love to have you share in his homegoing with them.
There will be a viewing this Wednesday night from 6-8pm at Dorsey-E Earl Smith Funeral Home at 3041 Kirk Road in Lake Worth, FL 33461. Their phone number is 561-964-3772.
The memorial service will be held on Thursday, December 30 at 11am at Lake Worth First Church of the Nazarene on 128 N. C Street Lake Worth, FL 33460. Their phone number is 561-582-6877.
