Ed would like to thank a few people who have meant so much to them along the way:

We are here to celebrate the life of Delphia…her life as she was before her illness.

She was a good hearted person who would give you the shirt off her back. She loved to help people.

She worked hard all her life. She owned the Sandwich Shop by the railroad tracks. She was famous for Shipwreck Sandwich and Super Cheese Combo. If the good Lord needed a short-order cook …he got one of the best!

She met Eddie at her sandwich shop. He was the love of her life.

When she sold the business she went to work for Walmart as a greeter. She loved talking with people and the highlight of her day was someone telling her they needed one of her sandwiches to keep them going.

She never met a stranger. She even ran a little restaurant at the Sweet Union Flea Market, she loved cooking for others.

She enjoyed going to the fish camp and eating shrimp. She was a bingo pro! If anyone could win at Bingo it was Delphia! She saved her Bingo winnings and bought a place at Holden Beach! She even opened up a bingo parlor at one time. Delphia loved life

She loved her little dog... Tumbleweed

Ed would like to thank a few people who have meant so much to them along the way:

Her sister, Edith Brooks, for her loving acts of kindness, caring, and words of encouragement and wisdom

Martha Coggin, for loving her sister.

Teresa Polk, her niece for making sure they always had food and celebrating holidays and birthdays with them.

To the families of Jane Griffin and Janet Fowler for visiting Delphia and bringing ice cream and nightgowns. And to all the other kind friends who visited her in the hospital and nursing home.

A special thank you to Bobby Patterson for his friendship and always being there at a moment's notice to help Ed with lifting Delphia or transporting her to and from doctors visits and therapy.

Also, thank you to Kathy Henderson, for all of her assistance and caring ways.

I would like to thank each of you for taking the time to share the celebration of Delphia’s life and all the acts of kindness you have shown us over the years.
