I was stunned to hear this afternoon that Robert Powell passed away this morning. Many of you remember how he played the piano for our worship services for a few years. Robert suffered from COPD and contracted Covid. It's too soon to share any funeral plans. Pray for Robert's wife, Doris, and their daughter? He will be missed by all of us.
