    Rest Easy Dad! My prayers go out to everyone who has a place in their heart for my Dad, especially his immediate family and Jill, who was with him until the end. I will always cherish the good memories of my childhood spent with you. I pray you are now at ease up there with Grandma and Aunt Patti. Love always, Amber Powell

    It is with heavy heart I write this. I cannot thank you enough for the joy and love you brought to my other mother, Jill. The light and love you two shared was unmatched and set the expectation for all love in everyones lives that met you two. I wish I could be there to celebrate your life, but the rona and the CDC, but know I will be there via zoom respectfully as I know that you would want your close friends and family, ONLY, to be there together undisturbed.
