What a gracious gentleman and a great friend to my Mom and Dad. Bless the entire Black family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
While I am sure he was unaware of it and, if he did, would certainly take no ownership of it, Mr. Black was an important figure to me as I was growing up years ago with his son, Ken. Mr. Black exemplified successful businessmen everywhere and, along with my own late father, showed me that hard work and a great family are assets worth striving for. Mr. Black opened his homes to me, perhaps not always when it pleased him to do so, but I will always be grateful to him and Mrs. Black for their hospitality and admire their success in raising a fine family.
