My condolences to Sharyl, George, Michael and the extended family. Many moons ago my boyfriend bought me jewelry from Mr. blackman and I knew many of you in our younger years. I wish you all peace. God bless you. Lisa

Alan and I met over 50 years ago at the store on 95th street. We always keep in touch over the years. He was a great guy and a fantastic jeweler!

I used to stop in at the store in Tinley Park on 159th street and bring him video's of current movies and talk about the old days.

I will really miss him greeting me at the door with his friendly voice.

He was a special guy and I will miss him!!!

We are so sorry to hear the sad news.AL was a wonderful man and we felt like family when we came to his place of business. All of our girls were excited when they saw a gift with the gray and purple wrapping. Nothing was more exciting. We will truly miss him.
