Why order flowers through us?

Buying flowers from us ensures that your order will be fulfilled through working with a network florists that are trusted by local funeral homes and recognized partners of the funeral industry. A customized message, along with a photo of your selected arrangement will remain in perpetuity within this memorial website. This service also includes “Smart Select” whereby the store notifies you if your floral selection has already been selected by another sender. This allows you the opportunity to choose a different product to ensure the family has a beautiful and unique selection of unique floral arrangements.

The price of these selections also includes the funeral home’s care of the flowers after the funeral and the delivery to the family or facility of choice where they can be rearranged and enjoyed by others for a longer period.

Memorial Candles

A Perpetual Tribute

The solitude and quiet peace of a flickering candle has long been a symbol of remembrance. Each candle lit will remain lit within this memorial website for the period you select. Your thoughtful gesture will be captured both in the candle as well as listed in perpetuity within the tributes section.

Memorial Trees

Circle of Life

In today’s changing world with climate change and environment concerns, “Honoring a Life” allows for family and friends to plant a memorial tree in honor of their loved one and friend. The purchase of a tree creates a beautiful permanent record on the Honoring a Life website, www.honoringalife.org. Each tree is planted through the efforts of Forestry Services throughout North America who determine where the greatest needs for reforestation are. Once planted, the geographical location where the tree is planted will be added to the record. A beautiful card is also sent to the family signifying your thoughtful gesture.

Obituary for Wayne Alfred Powell

Wayne A. Powell of Berlin, MD, passed away on January 4, 2013 at his home.

Born January 1, 1947, he was the son of the late Lawrence A. and Marie M. Powell.

He grew up in Pocomoke City and was a member of the Class of 1964 at Pocomoke High School. Following his graduation from Salisbury State College in 1968, he was a teacher in the Worcester County School System for three years. He then worked as assistant Sports Editor of the Daily Times for 2 and ½ years before entering—fulltime—into a career in Radio Broadcasting which he began as a partner as WDMV in Pocomoke City in 1963.

In 1978, he and partners Choppy Layton, Klein G. Leister and William E Esham Sr. founded the original WKHI – known 100—KHI—in Ocean City, MD. He ended his broadcasting career in 1999 with his retirement from WKHW in Pocomoke City.

1997, Powell became a member of the Maryland State police Volunteers in Police Support (VIPS) program. He remained active in the program until his death, logging 6576 volunteer hours while performing various duties at the Berlin and Princess Anne State Police Barracks.

He is survived by his faithful dog T.J. and several cherished friends.

At Wayne’s specific request there will be graveside service at First Baptist Church Cemetery, 2240 Old Snow Hill Rd., Pocomoke City, MD, on Friday January 11, 2013 at 11:00 AM with no viewing. Friends will gather at the First Baptist Church Social Hall following the service for a time of sharing memories.

He was a member of the First Baptist Church in Pocomoke City and it’s suggested that in lieu of flowers, donations in his memory should be made to the church, or the charity of one’ choice.

Arrangements are in the care of Holloway Funeral Home, P.A., 107 Vine Street, Pocomoke City, MD 21851.
