As a personal note from your Webmaster we will miss him as many of us were either colleges or, as I did, took classes from him either at Howard University, Fisk University, or the University of Maryland. He was also a member of Peoples Congregational Church, as I am, where he design the Stained glass windows and the Wood Carved Doors of the Church.
