Dear Mrs. Baker,You will be missed. You were such a loving person, not only as a neighbor but like my mother. I enjoyed talking with you and learned a lot from your way of life. I wish I can be sharp like you to the end of my life. Love, Etsuko

Such a beautiful lady, a good listener and advice giver.  I remember all the good times at Uncle Hunk and Aunt Blanches house by the railroad tracks and on Gobin Dr. My sincere sympathy to the family.  She was Mom's best friend in later years and they shared and made many memories.  God has welcomed her home for a great reunion and everlasting peace.  Rest easy Aunt Blanche and know you are loved and will be missed.
