Blanche, you are in my prayers. I enjoyed visiting with both you and HL at the beach, and I will miss HL. I am grateful to have you as a good friend.

Blanche,
I can not believe the time passed since Ned’s death without us seeing y’all in the last couple of years. You and Herman have endured so much and I wish I had taken the time to catch up. Our young family enjoyed some great times with you and Herman and the Smith’s. Camping trips, dinners, and hanging out at the Smith’s, all molding my idea of what adult grown-up friendships should look like.Herman and you, Ned and Gladys, Sheryl and Marqerite,and Doug and Dianne made it look easy. I have since learned it isn’t easy. Friendship like marriage takes work, commitment, and dedication to one another. We all know this, but we do not know how to apply this. Watching was learning.I always enjoyed Herman’s ever present smile. Herman often looked like the “cat that swallowed the mouse”.Something sparkled behind his eyes making one think he had a funny secret that he was keeping to himself.Perhaps that secret was one we all knew, behind every good man is a great woman- Blanche!Much love!
