Dewey Black was a wonderful person. He has been in my life for as long as I can remember. His family & mine’s relationship has its origin in the early 1950’s in Ada where our father’s worked together & became lifelong friends. Our families have been closely connected over 65 years. I’m sad I’m out of state & can't physically be at his service. I love Dewey & send my love to all of his family.
