Chester's little daughter, Kathryn, was six years old when he died. She is now 86 and living in Calfornia. She is my mother, and she remembers her dad vividly. He loved chocolate covered cherries and was studying to be a lawyer at the time of his death. I am named for his widow, Loretta Hall Hagan. My son, Hagan Black, is named for the grandfather I never knew, and in honor of my mother, Chester's daughter, who keeps his memory alive.
