We never seem to appreciate the efforts that people give until we get older and wiser. In Explorer scouts, we never thought twice about the time people like your dad Armand gave to us. I have many fond memories of the trips we took with your dad. We were blessed many times with his presence. Thanks..

Due to the weather I am not able to get to the vistation for Armand, I fondly remember he and Emily and going to their 50th Wedding Anniversary at Vallee Vista, plus I am in the adult choir at Holy Name and he of course was a long time member. My daugher picked up Vivian to attend Lady of Grace Academy so I have known the Blanchard family for a long time. I worked at Holy Name Church for 24 years so I know how much Armand did for his parish. Rosie Sylvester
