Our deepest sympathy goes out to Mike and his daughters, as well as all of their families! We lived in Liberty the same time the Blackwell’s were residents in Liberty. Our children grew up together. Sandy was an extremely good asset to our community as well as a kind and caring person. We know she will be sorely missed by all who knew her!
