Joseph Paul Powell, III (1959-2010)
Mr. Powell, son of Christine Harkness Powell, was a member of the Sons of the American Revolution and the Sons of Confederate Veterans. Two lines on his granite ledger marker are in Latin:
Requiem Aeternam Dona Eis.
Domine: Et Lux Perpetua Luceat Eis.
This prayer for the dead translates to English as follows:
Grant Them Eternal Rest, O Lord.
And Let The Light Shine Upon Them.
