I did not know Mrs. Powers personally, but I am a friend of her daughter, Tammy. She must have been the most loving mother a child could ever have. Tammy always talked about her patience with everyone, and she never heard her complain or have a cross word about anyone. How blessed the family was to have had her in their lives.
