My condolences to the Powell family during this difficult time. In the Bible, Jehovah God gives us hope. Acts 24:15 says, “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” Revelation 21:4 says, “and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more.” Very soon we will see the fulfillment of these promises here on Earth.

Mama Powell was a very special lady! She was a second mom to many of us! I always admired her selflessness, her strength, her kindness, how supportive she was of us at all our sports; she was a true WCS Warrior! She will be greatly missed!! Much love to the Schmunslers, Powells, and Jacksons. Love- Sharla Malone
