Condolences for Robert Arthur Powell

My deepest sympathy goes out to Susannah and Winston and the family. I still can't grasp this. I will greatly miss how Bob would take my hand and say "Hey, baby girl, how you doing?" (as I stopped to visit on my rounds at the market). That brightened even the dreariest of days. I'm so sorry for this loss especially for Susannah. You had something very special, all too rare, so precious. I'm honored to have known Bob. Such a good man. May his memory be a blessing.

My condolences to your sweet Susannah and family. So glad we got to meet you both in Asheville. Memories of being on the farm in the summer will linger until we meet again above.

So many wonderful memories of growing up with my cousin Bobby. Those that stand out in my memory are the family reunions, Lacotte and Powell family day trips to the shore (especially riding in the backseat of Uncle Art's blue Mercury), holiday visits, riding down Landing Road on the back of Bobby's homemade go-cart and among other memories, the thrill of riding in Bobby's car to Fortescue. He will be missed.

Susannah, I am so sorry for your loss. I will miss seeing Bob.... his wave and sweet smile coming and going. I know he was your rock. Remember, if I can help you in any way, please let me know. I am sure he is watching down on you and Winston and will always be close in your heart. May God light your way through the coming days. You are in my thoughts. Paula

Remembering so many things from our youth living in Newport with our families. I remember when my brother Rudy and Bobby would go on double dates and even have dances in our family room for all their age relatives and cousins (We were not allowed in as we were the younger sisters and would sit on the stairs and listen in and sometimes peek in). My deepest sympathy to his family from myself, Judy, Rudy, and Naomi.
