My deepest condolences to the entire Blanchard Family. I met Madeline in 1989 after making friends with her Son, Norman. I recall many pleasant conversations with Madeline. She was always friendly and kind. I was working with Norman as he began addressing an issue that was interrupting his quality of life. Madeline would often express her gratitude to me for spending time with Norman. Little did she know that my interactions with her and Norman were a blessing in my life. Over the years, life got busy and I was not in contact with Madeline often, however, when we did touch base, it was like we spoke every day. That is tangible evidence of the true friendship we shared. Norman and I continue to enjoy a friendship that I cherish. Madeline, may you Rest in Peace and continue to watch over your children as they continue their journey. Much Love!
