    Mack was a wonderful man that would do anything for anybody..He was a great father, grandfather & friend. No one has the right to say anything bad about anyone that has passed away. He life was taken from him in such a wrongfull way!! My heart goes out to family.He will be forever loved & missed in our home!!

    If you (boo butt) don't know Mack Blankenship then how could you talk about him??? I knew him quiet well.He was a very good man.Anybody in this area would say so.Why even bother with commenting something like this if you don't even know the man! That shows your ignorance without anybody knowing who you are.

    That is absolutely horrible and inhumane that someone would make a comment of that calibre regarding a deceased person, especially one who's life was taken by murder. I hope you sleep peacefully at night knowing that you have a heart of stone. There are many people who are grieving over the loss of someone they loved dearly, and to classify and (edited) him from hear-say is absurd and par human. That said, may he rest in peace and may his family find peace somehow with this terrible tragedy.

    I didn't know Mac Blankenship, I only knew of all the talk about him and his brother, being the biggest cocaine dealers around. Yes, some one has took his life, but you have to stop and think about all the lives he has taken.
