I was saddened to learn of Blanche's passing. The family has my heart felt sympathy. Especially Pat and Peggy Jo Angel. who are my friends. I remember Blanche from high school, always with a smile on her face and friendly to everyone. I remember her spending the night with my sister, who was in Blanche's class, and how much fun we had that night. I know it is Heavens gain for her to be there. The entire Messer and Angel family have my sympathy. What beautiful pictures of Blanche are posted. Shirley Cabe Spence

Joe and family - I am so sorry to hear of Blanche's passing. I always enjoyed talking with her and when we, many years ago, hang out. Please know that you and yours are in my thoughts and prayers and that she will be missed by all that knew her. A truly good woman! Betty Crawford
