My brother, Jimmy Howard "Pete" Redden, was in Al's class at PKHS, said he was "a great guy and thought a lot of him". I didn't know him that well, but felt close, as our grandparents, "Albert Hickman" & "Stella Hickman Shepherd" were brother & sister. So sorry for your loss, and our hearts are heavy too, but let us "hold fast to that Great Hope"
