Cardinal Hickey Dies at 84
Cardinal James Aloysius Hickey, 84, head of the Washington Archdiocese for 20 years, died October 24, 2004, at a nursing home in Washington. When asked by The Washington Post in 1989 what he would like people to say about him when he's gone, he replied: "First, I'd like them to say that he was always loyal to his church. Second, that he was a friend to Catholic education. And third, if they don't want to say the first two, at least I hope they would chisel on the stone, 'He served the poor.'"
