Debbie and Patty, I send my sincere sympathies. You know how much I loved Blanche. She was the greatest person! There came a time when it was her time to go. I know how hard it was to see her sick like she was and I'm sure that she had had enough. She will always be in my thoughts and prayers. I loved her like a mother. May your happy memories of her help get you through your bad days.

Patty and Debbie,
I have the fondest memories of your mom and all the time I spent at your house. I picture Blanche smiling and cooking with her red lipstick, great laugh and great hair!
32 Roosevelt was a real haven for me and she always made me feel like family. Love to you both, Ellen

I have been thinking about Blanche, Patty and Rachel recently and how much I looked forward to their coming through my lane at Target. They were 'favorites' of mine and I looked forward to their purchases each week after they had lunch at the Mandarin!
