Blannie was a lovely lady. She loved her family, friends and church! She especially loved feeding the birds outside her apartment at Parkview. She will be missed by all!

Ms. Blannie was one of the sweetest ladies we have ever known. She loved the Lord and showed it in her daily life. She and Billy had a wonderful relationship with my (Janet) parents. She shared things that my dad did for them many times. May the peace that only God can give be with you during this time of loss.

I remember Mrs. Harrington as a member in the FBC. She and my mother were friends from SS class. She was always so kind and thoughtful and always the same. She will be missed by all who we're blessed to know her.
