Losing my dear friend Blanche has left a void in my life. I take comfort knowing that she isn’t suffering anymore. I was her caregiver for two years and we became very attached to each other. Blanche is now with her husband and at rest. All the Angels and Saints are enjoying her company. Eternal rest grant unto you Blanche.

We will remember you, Blanche, with your friendly and ready smile for everyone.

We will remember you as an ever present church goer and Eucharistic Minister volunteer.

We will remember you as someone who has an unwavering faith in God.

We will remember you and your love of life.

Also, we will remember how you loved to go out and eat Italian food at Pazza Luna Restaurant.

So long, Blanche. Someday, when God wills it, we will meet again. We can go with you and Mike to Pazza Luna in heaven.
