I am a true California girl thru and thru but have somehow gotten transplanted to the middle of nowhere. Miss the ocean terribly but hey, life is still beautiful but the question I have is "Where is the surfing?" I can't quite remember how I found "Find a Grave" but I love this site. My father Sgt Howard Hicks Jr was cremated and his ashes are in the beautiful Pacific and being all the way here does not afford me the time to visit him as often as I would like. Thanks Dad for the surfing gene. If you have a chance please visit my Dad and also my Father-in-Law James Howard Rapson. Also 2 beautiful little boys Devon and Damon Routier.Thank you to everyone who has visited . Also a very special thank-you to those who have taken the time to visit my virtual cemetery for those special angels needing flowers. I try to keep it updated to those with 25 or less flowers. Everyone should be remembered. Again, thank-you.
