Tying the Knot at Hickory Creek!


February 4, 2022
How do we celebrate the month of love at Hickory Creek? We have a wedding … or two! On February 2, 2022, our resident Herbert R. told us he was getting married. And so was his grandson!

Mr. H joined our facility for the second time in October of 2021. We have all come to respect and enjoy his company. So when he told us the news, our Activities Director ordered the cake and started decorating for the celebration.

In 1971, the couple got married and spent 38 years together before divorcing in 2009. Brenda went on to marry her second husband and after his death, reconnected with Mr. H. Today, they began their second chance at first love with their grandson by their side.



Markie, Herbert’s grandson, met Britany while she was working with Mr. H. as an aide in his home. She said, “thanks to him, we met each other, and the rest is history." The couple got engaged in February of 2021 and decided to have a double wedding with Mr. H and Brenda when Mr. H was admitted to Hospice Services.

In room 710, at 11:30 AM, on February 2, 2022, the two couples stood together and said their vows to have and to hold, in good times and not so good times, from this day forward.

Mr. H shared, “That is beautiful. Today was beautiful. I am very appreciative of everything you guys have done for me. You all are so good to me, and that is why I came back here.”

We, the staff, are honored that they let us join in on such a memorable celebration.
