I’ve known the Blackstock Family since 1963.
Finest people you will ever know. Mary was everyone’s Mama. I have great memories being at her house. Belinda was one of my best friends in HS and we have kept in touch ALL the years after. Belinda, to you RL ,Datha and the rest of your family my heart breaks. I hope in the days ahead God will comfort you with all the memories of your Mama and all the good she gave y’all in being your Mama.

So very sorry for your loss- I know what an important person she was to each of you- the pain of losing a mother and grandmother is not something that goes away quickly, but as it does, it’s replaced by sweet, precious memories… may God bless each of you with peace and comfort at this very sad time- my deepest heartfelt condolences to you all.

We do not know the day or the time we will go to meet our Lord and Savior in Heaven. The worse thing that can happen to us left behind is the best thing for those that have parted from this earth. We reserve our beautiful memories in our hearts and minds daily of our loved one and one day will join them in paradise for a beautiful reunion. Datha, you and your family are in my prayers for healing and reflection of your beautiful Mother.
