Not sure what to say?

Blanche was a very special person to me. She cleaned my mother's house when I was a child thus looking after me those years I was growing up. After my mother, Jane Wood, passed she cleaned my sister's house. She was well in her 80s. I continued to see Blanche at the nursing home which I visit weekly. I watched her with her sister, Irene, in the special care unit. Later I would check in for a hug and a visit and I always took her to chapel on the Sundays I was leading the service. ...

So sorry for the loss. What changes in the world she must have seen in 100 years. Much love to you my friends.


100yrs old and still beautiful

Miss Blanche, I love you. Words can not express how much you will be missed.

Rest in peace Aunt Blanche. Enjoy your family reunion in heaven.
