I never met Blanche, but I remember a conversation Martie and I had in Midland, Ontario, about our mothers, and their failing conditions. I hired the North Carolina Baroque Orchestra to play for my mother's 100th birthday. She did not live to see her 100th birthday, but I told her several times that the orchestra was going to play, and each time she said "WOW." They played at a memorial service at her 100th birthday, and that brought all of us much comfort. Martie, I wish I could give you the comfort you gave me.
