My thoughts and prayers are with the Reed and Hay families -- and all of the cousins -- at this time. Blanche was always friendly and kind, and I was made to feel welcomed and comfortable in her company. I last saw Blanche two years ago, and even though it had been a very long interval between meetings, it felt as if we had not been apart. All my best wishes and love go to the entire family.

My heart breaks for the family for the loss of this very special lady. Seldom if ever did I not see a smile on her face. Blanche's laugh was the best and her love of family, God and others was something I always admired about her. Please know if I could reach out to all her siblings and children I would. Know that my thoughts, prayers and love are with ALL of you.🙏❤
