J.R. Black, Jr.

March 04, 2014
Betty Ruth, Jeannie, Robert, Charlie-Mother (Weeze Daniel) sent me the obituary of your dad's death. I was saddened to hear the news. Mother had a hard time talking with on the phone about your dad's death. As I read the obituary it brought back lots of memories of our growing up years in Abilene-I laughed & enjoyed the memories very much. My prayer is that God would surround all of you with peace, strength & Love! Grace & Peace, Sharon Daniel Robertson

Leigh and Charlie, I just came home from J. R.'s memorial service, and I realized once again what a truly great gentleman he was--always kind and welcoming and ready to help. I remember having Sunday lunch along with a large group of other HSU students at Mary and J. R.'s house in about 1958 or 1959. In fact, Charlie, you may have been there that day. We all had a wonderful time, enjoyed the delicious home cooking, and felt so warmly welcomed. It is one of my treasured memories. I want to express my thanks to Travis for the words he spoke today--full of humor and tenderness and the hope of resurrection that we all need at times like this. My love and prayers to all of you.
