Our deepest sympathy to the Blanchard family. A truly fun teacher to learn from, and loved by many, many students of Hathaway High School. Stephen, Patty and Cole Hebert

We were saddened to hear of Preston's passing although it sounds like it was finally time. At first we were worried Diane wouldn't know what to do with herself until I read the obit and remembered the two of them had created a downline of 50 direct descendants in just three generations. No wonder us democrats are having so much trouble! ;-)

From our first meeting at a campground in Bull Shoals, Arkansas we disagreed on almost everything but the time of day. And if I remember correctly we even disagreed on that until we sorted out what time zone we were in. My mom, Barb, Diane's cousin, and Howard are more practiced at keeping religion and politics to themselves. My wife Leanne and I, not so much. ;-) In fact, that's one of the few things we had in common with Preston.

Within just a few minutes of meeting we had the whole trailer in an uproar. Diane, lacking Preston's appetite for disagreement, Soon discovered an urgent need for groceries and ordered Preston out to the store. Leanne, never one to quit in the heat of battle, jumped up and climbed into the pickup with him and off they went, laughing and slinging verbal barbs back and forth like two kids in a water fight. As they returned, it was their voices that alerted us long before we heard the truck.

I doubt either of us will ever find anyone as agreeably disagreeable as Preston. We'll miss him and hope Diane will still find just a tolerable bit of an uproar in life so as not to miss him too badly.
