So very sorry to hear of the passing of Mrs. Black. I did not have the opportunity to meet her but my brother, Danny Murray, told me what a sweet and wonderful lady she was. Our family was blessed to enjoy the wonderful cakes she made at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Mrs. Black touched so many lives and my heart goes out to her family at this difficult time.
