I just learned of Mr. Powell's passing, and I wanted to offer my condolences. I delivered meals to Mr. Powell on Thursdays, and I always enjoyed out chats. He was a great story teller, and always expressed a deep love for his family. It was my pleasure to spend a few minutes each week with him. I am so sorry for your loss.
