Book of Celebration

We’re aware that some people could not make it to the memorial service in Liverpool. We set up this online book of celebration to give anyone a chance to share their memories of Colin and his music, along with any messages for the family.

We have now closed the Book of Celebration to new entries, but all previous entries remain below to view.

Hi Wonderful Life found me when I had just had a miscarriage and was all alone, very far from my family. I played that song over and over again. I ended up feeling like Black was my friend, like we had a connection and if we met on the street he would ask, "So Charlotte, how are you feeling?" I was very heartbroken to hear of his death in January 2016. Then today I was playing that song again on YouTube and realised it was the first anniversary of his death. I continue to be sad. He still had a lot to offer to the world. Because of the connection I felt, I worried about his family and how they were copying with their loss. I pray they are fine. Thank you Black for the lovely music. May your soul rest in eternal peace. May the Lord keep his family strong.❤
