I knew dear Blanche for only a short time, but I could see our good Lord in her. He gave her so many beautiful gifts and she was a lady you wanted to hug and spend time with. In such a short period of time she gave me so much understanding in how to live. Thank you dear God for Blanche and thank you sweet Blanche for your friendship. Say hi to Rocky for me. Love you.

Blanche was a wonderful example to all she knew. We all looked at her with admiration, and love when in her presence and realized that she truly lived a life of Faith, Attitude, Sense of Humor and Optimism. Even at 98yrs God took her too soon from us because she had more work to do. She will now work from heaven and be our angel. God Bless you Blanche.

I regret I wont be able to attend the memorials for my Aunt Blanche. She always sent me a card on my birthday telling me how old I was! She also sent my mom cards every month for my first year of life. Ill miss her very much.

Its hard to believe Blanche is no longer with us. She is a friend that will forever be remembered. We shared our life stories together many times. May she rest in peace.
