    Jerry and family, I am so sorry to hear that Mrs Blanton passed away. I loved her and it was a pleasure working with her over the years through Elder care,she made my job a joy and rewarding and I considered her a friend as well as a client.I pray that you all find peace in the knowledge that she is with our Lord and savior Jesus Christ as she professed her belief to me on many occasions over the years.We sometimes meet people as we journey through life that leave a lasting impact on us and our lives and Mrs Blanton was one of those people for me!
    Love and peace to you all,
    Jeanette Jones
