Mrs. Powell was such a big part of my childhood. Lisa and I were best friends growing up, so I spent a lot of time with the Powell family. Mrs. Powell was a loving, gentle woman who I loved and admired. I am deeply sorry to hear of her passing and send my sympathies. My prayers and thoughts are with Lisa and all of her family.
Love you all, Suzie Cano
