God Bless all of you. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Mr. Blackwell was a very special person to us.
Love and Sympathy to the Blackwell Family,
My thoughts and Prayers are with Merle and Children and famiy. Rayford was always 'the rock' and Leader of the Palmer, Blackwell and Rackard families amoung others. He has been a Father figure to us all. Always telling us how important it is to love each other, love for families and above all to love Jesus Christ, our Lord. Rayford always made that clear to all of us anytime we saw him.
Love, Thoughts & Prayers are with all of you at this time of loss of dear loved one
We love you and will keep in our prayers. The children of the Blackwell's dear friends, John & Annie Tarver: Leona, John Jr., Ed, Jewel and Liz.
May God's love surround you all during your loss of your wonderful father, husband, brother and grandfather and give you peace and comfort.
To the Blackwell Family,
Rayford was my good friend and like a father in Jesus. He was always a Christian to me. Terry and I know he is now ok with the Lord.
Our Love and Sympathy to the Blackwell Family,
