  • Sorry to hear of Delcenia’s demese. Her husband, Beach Sr, was a first cousin of mine. My mother Eda ( Wireman
    Mullins was a sister of Katy (Wireman) Bradley who was Beach Bradley’s mother. I had lost track of Delcenia over the years especially since Eda Tone passed. I plan on coming to the funeral home. You have my sympathy.

  • Dear Linda, Libby and families – I am so sorry to hear about your Mom passing. Eric was just asking about everyone a couple weeks ago. Just saw her notice in the paper. We know she is in a better place. May you find peace that passeth all understanding. Sincerely, Debbie, Sean, Tina, & Eric.

  • Linda and family, I know how hard it is to lose a parent, or anyone, and I just learned of your loss. You were such a sweet friend to me while we both lived in Delaware. You ran the used book store, right? Anyhow, please know I care very much about you and the hurts and triumphs you have known. You can find me on Facebook if you want to talk.
