Preston Blanchard Sr.

Friday, December 31, 2010
When you know a family as close as I know ya'll's it's kind of hard to not know that someone's not gonna be around, yet the serenity of knowing that as a family you grew and conquered great heights and all in the Lord's Grace (I think sometimes) I've been there and I know that has a personal friend we've lost one who has touched many, many, peoples lives cause I KNOW THAT MAYBE MOTHER CAN HEAR HIM NOW.

Do not forget to meet all your difficulties with love and laughter. Be assured that God is with you. Remember, remember, it is the last few yards that tell. Do not fail God. He cannot fail you. Rest in His Love.
This was the Person whom I knew and lived his life to the fullest. He was a wonderful Father, Husband, Grandfather, and most of all Friend.

May God Bless all and now Mother could probably hear Him(Even as loud as he was) Keep in touch all and I also feel that I'm kinda part of the family.

I was so saddened to hear of Coach Blanchard's passing. He was a great person and a wonderfully entertaining teacher.
Though my family and I are out of town, my thoughts and prayers are with the entire Blanchard family.

Our prayers are with you all. We've already been missing our visits with Diane and Preston, neither of us have been free to travel. But there is email which we use sometimes daily. I have fond memories of Preston's debating style at campouts and I can hear him laughing right now. What a trouper. When Diane disapproves of Howard's teasing she points that waving finger at him. Hilarious, became a tradition around here providing a good laugh.

Cousin Diane...you are on my mind all the time.

Love and prayers,
Barb & Howard
