My heart aches with sadness, to know that I will never hear her loving voice or that beautiful laugh again, in this world....and yet....

I also want to dance & shout with joy, at the thought of her being out of pain, making the other angel's laugh with her. .and knowing that one day, I will see her again in the sweet by & by!

Aunt Louise was one of those rare & precious souls, who always took the time to think of others....and to let them know with a card, a call or a "surprise" in the mail, that she was thinking of you....and that you were always loved & missed!

She used to send me little packages of candy, treats & "precious moments" cartoon clippings from the newspaper, when I was a c
...hild, because she knew how much I loved them.

I never when faced with the project of decorating a "neutral" room for both my son AND daughter (Steffan & Serena) to come home to in recent year's, when they visited from college....I could NOT think of a better theme, than "precious moments."

Every moment I had with you, Aunt Louise, was precious! Especially this last year.

I'm so very sorry for the loss of this beautiful woman, who never said an unkind word about anyone. Please know how much she meant to I know she did to everyone reading this. You're all in my prayers.

I will love you always,

Yes,I have many cards Louise sent me while I was incarcerated.It makes a person's day to get mail in prison.The Bible tells us in Hebrews 13:3,I believe,to remember those in prison.Louise definitely remembered
She made it a point to write me cards with scripture that gave me a LOT of hope in a hopeless place.
I love her and will miss her.

I am sorry to read of Mrs. Blackerby's passing. She has been my neighbor since we moved to our home in 1995. My husband was so fond of her and told me stories about the years he knew her from school, and when he died in 2006, she was so sweet to reach out to me with one of her lovely cards. A few days later she saw me in my yard when she was driving by and she stopped to tell me how sad she was about Marvin and how much she thought of him. I have passed by her house hundreds of times since then, and just as many times remembered her kindness. She couldn't possibly have known how much her sweet actions meant to me, but I want her family to know just what a wonderful woman and neighbor she's b...een to me. May God be with you during these sad times and give you peace. Rest in peace, Mrs. Blackerby.Read more

My children were blessed to have Mrs. BlackBerry in school. She really helped them in her reading lab. They still have her picture among their school memories. I remember substituting and being blessed to know her. Praying for her family.
