Rhonda and family,
I want you to know that I am thinking of you and understand this is a hard time, for all of you.
I only knew your mom through your eyes. She was a special mom that loved her family without conditions, she worked hard to keep everybody safe and there was nothing she wouldn’t do for all of you.
You will have your mother’s spirit in you forever and lucky to have had such a loving, caring woman in your life. Cherish all that you know of your mom, she will always be with you.

Blanche was a witty funny lady…I remember her as a lovely woman who loved my Uncle Lee. Together they laughed often and enjoyed life. On my return trips home I never missed a chance to play cards with them… always a fun loving hilarious game of witt and bluffs. Blanche was fun to be with and she will be missed. My thoughts are with her Friends and family.

Dear Rhonda & Family,
I am very sorry about your loss.
She’s in a better place right now
Than she’s ever been before;
All pain is gone; she’s now at rest;
Nothing troubles her anymore.
It’s we who feel the burden of
Our sadness and our grief;.
We have to cry, to mourn our loss,
Before we get relief.
We know we’ll reconnect with her
At the end of each life’s road;
We’ll see her cherished face again
When we release our earthly load.
From your co-worker & friend
