  1. I was saddened by the news of Blanches passing. I thought she was going to make it to 100 at least, if not beyond. The world will be a different place without her, but is surely is a better place bacause of her. She was with me through many hard times in my life. I hated to see her move away. Like so many of my clients, she was like another mom. I have been very fortunate to have such special people in my life and see them on a weekly basis for so many years. Many people don’t even see or get to know their own family as much or as well as I knew my clients and their families. It gave me a lot of special relationships, extended families and stories to enjoy over the years. I am sure in the beauty shop we solved a lot of world problems too. Ha Ha! The theropy sessions were great for all of us.
    I will always remember how perfect Blanche liked to look with the beautiful white hair and the fingernails, she could have used them as weapons. I remember her voice and that southern accent. I think of her and I smile. I am sure you have a lot of great memories, so hold them in your heart, it will get you through this sad time. Remember we are lucky when we can have a parent with us for so long. It is not working out for me to be at the service, but Blanche will know my heart is there. My thoughts and prayers will be with you.
    May God Bless you and keep you strong.
