Not sure what to say?

I was very sad to hear the news of Mrs. Blankenship's passing. Even though I never met her, I feel like I know her just a little bit because of Eddie's wonderful stories. I'm thinking of the entire family and their loss.

We will truly miss Mrs. Mandy Blankinship, she always had a kind heart, and could make us laugh when times felt hard. We will be praying for comfort for Raymond and the entire Blankinship family.
Charlie and Tiffany Pollard

In My Pocket

I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.

My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.

They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.

Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.

But of all the treasures I have, it's the memories of you that are the most precious.

By Lamaretta Simmons

Raymond, Gerald, Grant, Loretta, and family; I am so sorry for your loss. I wish that we could be there for you guys. I have no doubt that Nannie and Fannie were both right there to take her hand to take her to the rest of the family. We have one more guardian angel to watch out for us.
