From Terry D. Hubbs, a cousin of Powell's

I was so sorry to learn of Powell's death and not attending the visitation events and his funeral, but was traveling out of town and for that reason unable to attend any of these functions. That is because, of all my Mitchell cousins, Powell was the closest to me of them all, followed by Mike. Of our group of Mitchell cousins, Powell was the oldest, followed closely by me.

Among my fondest childhood memories are those we shared together at our Mitchell grandparent's house near Montpelier, back when we all were kids, especially during the Christmas season. I recall with considerable delight Powell's, Mike's and my playing cowboys and robbers around the entire place, particularly the barns on that farm. We played over the entire property. all the way down to where the two highways meet. My, how the years have passed!

We've all gone our different ways but our times together in such close friendship, including with Patricia, and though too sparse, are so pleasant and unforgettable.

My sincere thoughts and condolences go out to Powell's immediate family, as well as to his brothers, Mike, Jeff and Kim, during this, their time of grieving, for their "big" brother.

To the family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that soon God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”(Rev. 21:3,4) May this promise give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathies.
