For Joy & Family: Bill & I are sending you our love & condolences in the passing of one so very precious to each of you. Your loss is indeed heaven's gain! We know from those who worked for Clarence at Dupont that his love of Christ was evident every day even in the work place. His testimony on Sundays was the same at work, every day & in every way that a Christ follower should be. This is rare & will never be forgotten by those men who were blessed to work for a real, genuine Christian. Personally, I have missed seeing the "Blacks" at the Mall & the laughter of you, Joy, as we both said at the same time, "Well, hello Joy White" and "Well, hello Joy Black". Joy, you often were not having the best day due to your diabetes but your smile & your stories about your three girls were so positive & uplifting to hear. Clarence just patiently stood near by until he could get in a word, a question for me. That question was always the same, "How's Larry?" Larry, you see, was one of those guys who enjoyed working for Clarence many years ago. They became friends & Clarence never forgot. He was one in a million, a godly man, loving husband & Dad & I'm sure he loved all his Grands & Great Grands plus he was a faithful friend. Men like him are not soon forgotten. Joy, you are in our prayers & we are so sorry that we won't see you on Monday as we have to keep a medical appointment in Toronto that day. One day soon we will all be together, with the Lord & those we loved who have gone before. Together for eternity!! What a hope!!!

I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Black. He was such a wonderful man who loved the Lord and the Lord's people! I truly enjoyed time spent with him and Mrs. Black when I lived in North Bay for university. He worked selflessly for so many years among the people of Mattawa. What a blessing he and his wife were to that community. He will be greatly missed here on earth but is finally with the One he loved and served. May the Lord send peace to the hearts of all the family.
