Darnell was a good friend of mine from Douglas Elementary to Roosevelt High School. He use to stop by my house in Miller. It was funny , he didn’t realize his doctor was my husband. We had a good laugh. He was a great guy.
Rest In Peace my dear friend,

Sheridan and I shared great laughs together at Beckman Jr. High and the mighty Roosevelt (Panthers/Velt) High school. 1970 was a great year to be young and build memories. May God grant Sheridan eternal peace. Our heartfelt condolences goes out to the entire Powell family.
