We are saddened at Sandy's sudden passing. The Blankenship home was one of our favorite places to visit during our mission time in Martinsville. I know from experience that losing a spouse is one of life's greatest challenges. Steve, our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

My deepest sympathy is with the family and loved ones of Sandy Blankenship. The Jewell family knows how difficult it is to lose a loved one that is so young, our Cheryl was only 46. Hold on to your happy memories for comfort as you remember how much she loved and was loved.
