Goodbye to Essie
I only knew Essie Simms by reputation, never having the opportunity to get to know her. But by all accounts, she was Richmond's all-time best theater fan. I mourn her passing along with the rest of the local community. For more info., keep up with the Barksdale blog for details on a memorial service and other remembrances.
