Blanche was a dear friend that I got to know as I seen her almost every week to do her hair. We had a lot of talks about family and our dear Lord. She was very devoted to Grace Church and her family. I remember her telling me about the many steps it took to make Grandma's Rainbow Jello. She said she knew her Grandkids loved it and she didn't want to let them down. She was a classy lady and I will miss her. My deepest sympathies to the families and may God grant you comfort.
