Thousands Pack Blackburn Memorial


(WTHR) Thousands packed Indianapolis’ Trader’s Point Christian Church Sunday night to bid farewell to a pastor’s wife murdered in her own home.

“Some people have funerals, and then some people have celebrations,” explained Pastor Perry Noble, “and in the 28 years that she was with us, Amanda gave us a lot to celebrate.”
