Steve, your mother and dad were good friends of mine (Kent) from our days at Waite and beyond. For the last 30 plus years we sent Blanche articles that my wife and I wrote for many different nature organizations. Every year we sent long Christmas letters that also detailed our hobby of supporting young athletes from many different high schools. Blanche never failed to let us know how much she enjoyed our articles and letters. We send you our deepest sympathy.
