The Life of Mr. Theodore LaShawn Powell “P-roni” (McRae, GA)
“Those we love must someday pass beyond our present sight must leave us and the world we know
without their radiant light. But we know that like a candle their lovely light will shine to brighten up
another place more perfect more divine. And in the realm of Heaven where they shine so warm and
bright, our loved ones live forevermore in God's eternal light.”
