Nancy...I just received this sad news.
Mr Powell was so good to me for 13 years, at Lawry's Chicago....he hired me right off the street, without an interview, and he gave me the best job I have ever had....I met you a few times at the restaurant. I was the bartender.

I continue to receive cards in the mail, phone calls and e-mails with such a wonderful outpouring of testimonies of my dear husband. I feel blessed and so fortunate to be the one to spend the most time with him these past few years since he retired from Lawry's. His Mother was the one who always reminded me that I should not begrudge him the time he spent taking care of business/following his career. I did anyway, some of the time, though I have easily come to terms with those past struggles - after hearing, thus knowing how much he helped so-o many people through their trying/troubling times, in addition to the just for fun times. It seems boundless and remarkable to realize how deeply and intently he followed his heart and unknowingly, became a quiet unasuming evangelist. He was totally genuine, never asking or expecting anything in return for his time and wisdom. In the later years of our marriage, I realized he cared and shared with not only family and friends, but also with current and previous co-workers. I told him that I believed he was a different kind of evangelist - One at a time was his style. I believe Jesus would have chosen him as one of his followers/teachers and now He can really put Dick to work. Today I am more at peace with his passing, as I feel blessed to have known him best at his best!
