Dear Family:
I met "B" during my time, as a student, at Turner Theological Seminary. He loved and spoke fondly of his soulmate, Elmer and her daughter Diana. He was a tremendous blessing to the Civil Rights Movement.

To The Family of
Rev. Cottonreader:

We were so sorry to hear of your loss. The write up was right, a lot of us did not know him well.

But you did see him from time to time in many marches over the years, mostly with Hosea Williams.

He was a foot soldier for justice and his leagcy will live on.
