Ms Blanche was the first person I met when moving my parents in down the hall from her at Brookdale almost two years ago. She was so sweet and friendly and never forgot my name after that first meeting. One sharp lady to the very end. I was so impresssed with her the very short time I had the pleasure of knowing her. She is already missed at Brookdale. So very sorry for your tremendous loss.

Lee, Mary, and I will certainly remember all the good times that we had with Ms. Blanche. She was warm and caring as well as easy to talk to. I also enjoyed learning that we were distant relatives...we definitely had fun talking about family members that we had in common. She will be missed. Shelly Gentry
