Dear Claire and Family: So schocked to hear about "POPS". I loved him as he was my second Father. I worked with at the GENERAL STORE since he moved to Lewes. At first, he was our coffee man, then he graduated to a full time employee. When I retired at the end of 2012, in my eyes he knew everything about the business and then some. Customers use to think he was my husband as we argued a lot, but it was all in good fun. We had a lot of good times together and he will be sadly missed by everyone who knew him. RIP my good friend, until we meet again!
