MILTON, Del.- The family of the Milton couple killed in a head-on car accident Wednesday is mourning the loss of a husband and wife who embodied the word "community."

Eduardo and Priscilla Saez, both 36, were pronounced dead at the scene of Wednesday morning's crash on Route 113 near Lincoln. A day later, family and friends came together to not just cope with their death, but to remember how they lived.

"My mom was like my best friend," said Shanel Dickens, Priscilla's daughter and Eduardo's step-daughter. "So was my step-dad. I could tell them anything. There were no problems. They knew everything. I had a really good connection with my parents."

"They were very caring and giving people," said Bill Boyle, who says he's known Eduardo for 15 years. "They did everything they could to better the Cape region, especially in the sports arena."

Boyle says the happy couple put family and their kids before all else. He added that they loved watching their kids play sports in the school district, where they were heavily involved.

Priscilla was a cafeteria worker and school bus driver at H.O. Brittingham Elementary School, while Eduardo was a custodian at Cape Henlopen High School. Eduardo also coached football at Mariner Middle School.

Eduardo and Priscilla leave behind Dickens and two sons, 13 and 10, who both attend school in the Cape Henlopen School District. The two sons are being looked after by members of the Saez family.
