To First Lady and the entire Blakes family, it is with great sadness and greater joy the I extend my heart felt sympathies at the news of my father in the faith's transition from Labor to Reward. When the very first weekly broadcast of an African American clergyman was to hit the airways in New Orleans, I was priviledged and blessed to be a part of that divine endeavor. I was then a member of the WGNO-TV CH26 production crew that launched an event that would change this world. Many was the time we would record from the Prophet's office, or a Saturday morning service, or a regular worship experience. It was then that I feel in love with this humble and holy Man of God. Little did I know then how my life and the lives of millions would be changed so much for the better by this great messenger sent by God. Prophet Robert Charles Blakes Sr. gave me a hand up when I was at one of the lowest points of my life. He showed me JESUS, and told me simply " God Is Able " Again to you First Lady and your sons, my condolences. Reverend RCB I'll see you over in gloryland where I know you will be very close to the thrown.
