  1. Wesley & Cindy,
    Sorry to hear about Blanche but I know she is in a better place now. It was a joy to have known Blanche for over twentyfour years. We always told each other some day when we got old we wanted to learn to quilt. Well after about ten years we had the chance to learn to quilt & enjoyed every minute together. Over the years we took in a lot of Quilt shows but one of our favorite was in Grove,OK. She would just tell her husband we were going to a Quilt show but not where it was. He would ask her when well you be back & she would tell him when you see me coming in the door. We had many laughts together over the years Blanche was a very good friend & she will be missed. You all are in our prayers.
