Remembering the Pine Belt: Robin Paul Powell

"Here is a picture of my dad, Robin Paul Powell, Sr. He passed away on May 1, 2013, at the age of 56 years old. My dad was the type of man that never met a stranger. In the first few moments of meeting him,  people liked him. Although he wasn't a rich or wordily man, he would give you the shirt off his back..his last dime. He never judged anyone in his entire life and would befriend anyone, from a preacher to a convict. He was also a very forgiving man and always saw the best in others. He loved his grandchildren and would drop everything to do and be there for them. I didn't tell him enough how much he meant to me, so here's my chance now. I love you, daddy and miss you..Till we see each other again!!" - Eric Jaramillo
