Deep sympathy in the passing of Officer Black, long a public servant and valued member of our community. His life made a difference. He was a fellow officer with my father, Chief Harold Charles Jennings, who served with him many decades. Of course, I knew Officer Black too. Sending love and condolences to his family and friends.
RIP, Sir. Well done.
