To members of Lord Honorable Duke and Mr Daddy Bill Cothron family. Very few men are blessed with talents and attributes to be referenced in such profound manner in life or at their demise. During your miracle years you and your family were the architects and engineers of entrepreneurship and economic development for people of color.When lending institutions would not extend loans to Blacks to establish business enterprises, you did it any way. When many young individuals were unable to find jobs for economic survival due to social circumstancess you gave them a job to restore their worty and dignity. Daddy Bill you were the Mandella and Rcokfeller and you were a trail blazer. In spite of it all you remainde grounded every step of the way . You performed miracles with dignity and transparency. Thank you for the opportunity for me to see a man of your caliber in action because you were a trail blazer. Rest in peace my noble giant because you were a powerful force and will be missed by the multitudes.
