Mr. Blair was such a sweet and smart man. I enjoyed conversing with him. I also feared being caught if Shirley and I were to slip in late. I never saw him mad. He was such a big man that he didn’t need to do anything but stand up and you knew he meant business. Ha! He raised 2 beautiful daughters. Love runs deep through this family due to him and Ms. Nina. I’m thankful I got to know Mr. Blair.
We’ll see you soon.❤️
