Just offering prayers and condolences to the Powell family in the passing of Mr. Charles Powell.

I got to know Mr. Powell while growing up as a member of First Baptist Church. I also worked with him when I worked seasonally @ WiseWay Supercenter. Mr. Powell was a good man to know and always full of conversation. He will be dearly missed.
