    Auntie Blanche was very gifted she did all kinds of crafts. When I was 12, Auntie Blanche taught me how to paint. I was given many gifts from crafts she made. When I tried to speak Czech, I remember Auntie Blanche and My grandma Libbie having fun correcting me. I have many heart felt memories of Auntie Blanche and will cherish them forever. I love you Auntie Blanche! I find peace knowing you are in a better place with Uncle Tom and Great Grandma.

    Dearest Aunt Blanche will be remembered in my thoughts and prayers.
    I will cherish the greatest time we had when Mom and Aunt Blanche came out to
    Arizona to visit me and share my home for a week. She had a great time and
    I was so glad to have shared that time with her! “Aunt Blanch, may you and
    Uncle Tom now share your love for each other throughout eternity in God’s
    home. Bless you both and may your family be comforted knowing how much
    they are loved by everyone!

Please share your thoughts ...
