Your dad was one of the finest of all men! He had a gentle nature, sweet and kind spirit, and was truly a Christian. He gave my husband, one of the greatest compliments when he said, "Bro. Blackstock, you are the best pastor we've ever had." We have great respect for Son and will along with all of you cherish many precious memories. We, too, will miss him. May God help all of you through this time of sorrow.
