    Dear Mrs. Black, Melissa and Terri:

    Tommy and I wish to express our deepest heartfelt sympathy to you and the family today as you celebrate Mr. Black’s life.

    He was very kind me growing up and most certainly treated me like a daughter. I am thankful that God allowed me the opportunity to know him.

    Kind Regards,
    Jennifer Watts-Martin and Tommy J. Martin
