Mrs. Blanton was a wonderful neighbor and friend. James and I have many special memories of her. We have thought about her often and wondered how she was doing. You all will be in our prayers.

Ms Blanton was so very special to myself and Angie. She taught me so much about a lot of things. I loved her like my family. This makes me so sad. So very sorry for your loss.
