My deepest heartfelt condolences to all whose life this lady touched. She was once a guiding light in a dark room I found myself in. She lifted my spirits, showed me compassion, and took the time to try to understand my heart. Although I have not seen her in years, her memory remains. To the Blackburn family, know you are in my thoughts and prayers. Letting go is never easy, but the heart can always remember.
