Blanca was a true shining light in a world often filled with darkness.  I so enjoyed working with her.  She did amazing things with and for the families she served.  I will miss her laughter and her strength.  My heart breaks for you all and I will continue to pray for peace in this very difficult time.

 Please accept my sincere sympathy on the recent loss of your dear loved one. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. May the God of comfort be with you in this time of sorrow. May these words bring you hope, “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning, nor outcry, nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:4) This promise will be fulfilled one day, until then, may all your memories sustain you in the days to come. Jw.org
