So sorry to Jon Black and family. John was an interesting character with an ever present twinkle in his eyes. Always looking for treasures to sell or keep. I remember he once offered me $150 for my stain glass window. The only problem was it was still in my house! Even though I declined his offer he still took us to the Paramount in Peru for a delicious steak dinner. He will always be remembered by me with a smile coming on instantly when I think of him. RIP John Black.
