“His influence, not only on the community but on the world. I will grow from everything he taught, a legend on earth. He was real authentic from the start.”
“Everything he did for my community. I grew up over here, this is a part of me. He made this shopping center for us.”
“He’s from here, he cared about our community and he helped us. … He will always be remembered.”
“I love him because he talked about black businesses and he got along with everyone.”
