  8. I thank God for this special lady, I only knew her for a “brief” 9 years, 9 months, and 20 days. From the very first meeting, when she met me at the back door and engulfed me in her arms, she made me feel welcomed, loved, and accepted. If I had any trepidations about coming from the South to the North concerning that first meeting, she diminished those with her graciousness. I will remember her beautiful penmanship, my favorite Turkey and Stuffing she made that I loved, and her constant thoughtfulness and excellent remembrance of all our birthdays, and anniversaries. She really was a precious jewel.

    Please if you are available on Sunday morning, join my church service at 11:00 am, I will be sharing a special acknowledgment and testimony about Mom Power. The Zoom ID and Password are both the same – 912 232 3284 or you can dial in using a landline or cell phone by (912) 205 6099. God Bless.
    With love, your daughter Melody Power.

  9. Doris was my grandfather’s sister, ie my Great Aunt, but I don’t recall ever meeting her. 😥 I’m sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers. 🙏

  10. In the short, nine months that I knew Doris and visited her weekly I got to know her quite well. She was always gracious and worried about me doing too much and I told her that was not the case. She told me I should rest. She talked a lot about her husband, Paul, and how good he was to her and I’m sure that he was and I know that she missed him very much. She was always thankful and gracious when I took her grocery shopping and we had many chats about various things I will miss going to see her every Monday and our occasional trips to the beautician or grocery store. I will always remember her as she has left a deep impression on my heart. I know that she is happy to be united with Paul again rest in peace Doris.

  12. Mrs. Power was our neighbor on East Henry Street and later a customer on my paper route on Pittsburgh Avenue. She was a sweet and kind lady. Her late son, Michael, was my best friend and I think often of him and the family. Best wishes to Mrs. Power’s surviving children with whom I spent many happy years. God bless all.
