Children of Mr. Percy Powell's legacy- Grace and Peace! YAL were blessed, may the memories hold yal together and UP! Love YA!

Ah Percy, I saw you in the mart of your building late January and with the mask, you shyly spoke. I pulled down my mask and ask was this a good day to speak. You grabbed my arm and said "Girl, how you doing! Been alright? Good seeing you!" (That's the guy I knew!)

There was not a dull moment around you from the time my mom, Joyce Jones introduced me to you! She always told me you asked about me or sent your best!
Me: "Where you going?"
Percy: "Oh, I went to the store but no where but here."
Me: "You shole know how to come outside!"
Percy, you were a shining example of a MAN! Genuinely concerned for others, stopped and held conversations - gave me wisdom! and smiled as you walked away. Thank you for your service to me and mankind:)
'Gonna miss them hats, stomps and fresh-face:) around the building, but glad to know YOU are now at PEACE!
Good knowing the one and ONLY "Percy L. Powell🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
