I am in SHOCK!! Yesterday I got the call that Brother Jerry Black was sick and they were taking him to the ER. They wanted everyone to pray. So last night after church we were going to the hospital until we talked to Beth. (his daughter) She said he just had a urinary track infection and he was in ICU. But it was just because his blood pressure and they would probably put him i a room tomorrow and he would be fine. She didn't even come up. So we decided to stay home since it was 9:30. Well mom's phone died while we were out at the grocery store and mine was already dead. So we got home got ready for bed and at 11:00 mom plugged her phone and got the call that he had a heart attack. He was on life support and they had been trying to revive him for 45 minutes. So we took off to the hospital. By the time we got there it was too late. They had just came out and said he had passed.
So to say the very least our church is in shock and his family is upset. Sister Faye passed away Jan 2 and it seems like he has been grieving him self to death. He was definitely a man of few words but he had a great since of humor. Since Sister Faye passed away he seems to have been talking a lot more. I guess he had no one to talk to at home. He was a GOOD man and a very talented singer. He will be greatly missed! Please pray for his parents and his daughters they have lossed there mom and dad with in 6 months. I can not imagine how they are feeling. As far as his parents. Brother Jerry was there only child so as all of us with children can imagine what it would be like to lose a child. That is just wrong parents are not supposed to out live their kids. But they are taking it very hard and not in good health at all. So pray for the family and our church.
