Dear Melinda, Ms. Sue and Family,
I am going to miss seeing Poogie!  I didn’t see him often but when I did we always talked about the fun we had playing pinochle and always vowed that we would gather everyone together to play again.  Unfortunately, as life will sometimes dictate , we did not make it happen. However, I will always remember  the fun we had growing  up and the good times we had on those pinochle nights.  Lots of laughing and selling wolf tickets.  Every time I have one of those memories, I will think about him.   I sincerely hope your personal memories of him will bring you smiles and comfort in the days ahead!
God Bless You,
Becky Corbin Powell

May the God we serve give you peace and comfort. God Bless You All!
