Leslie and Family, I’m so sorry for the loss of your mom, she was great lady always happy. It was so nice to see both of you at my parents 50th anniversary celebration. Blanche was just the same as I had remembered her all those years ago when Leslie and I had sleep overs. My thought and prayers are with you all.

She was a woman an Aunt with great strength, and courage. She always knew what to say, and most times it would make us chuckle. She was a true light full of beauty, and grace. I know all of heaven is rejoicing upon her arrival. She was truly loved, and will be deeply missed.
