THE GENEROSITY OF MY FATHER My father Delroy Powell always has been a very generous person He gave of himself very often He did this for his family his friends his community his church and even to strangers My grandmother told me that my father has always been like that She said in the early years of his life when he was just 4 years old to be exact he was given a little piggy bank by one of his uncles with two dimes in it He was saving to buy a little bike One afternoon a woman and a small child rang the doorbell begging for food and clothing My grandmother at the time was a struggling single parent who could hardly make both ends meet She apologized to the woman and told her that she had nothing to give to her and then as she turned to close the door Delroy ran to the door with his little piggy bank with the 2 dimes and handed it over to the woman She was moved to tears My father spent many hours when not volunteering at the local childrens hospital building beautiful furniture items in his woodwork shop which he would immediately give to one of his children grandchildren friends or neighbors My father made our garden 5 times larger than he and my mom needed so that there would be plenty of vegetable for other people living in our community Even more remarkable was my fathers commitment to community and church projects which often benefit persons whom he had never met I am amazed at the number of persons from a variety of communities who were touched by his generous nature This reminds me
