  2. Dearest Abel and family, I’m so sorry for your loss. Blanca was a great friend and co worker. I am so saddened to learn that she has left us. I will pray for you Abel and her kids and especially her granddaughters whom she loved so much. I remember her telling me stories about the twins and the younger one. They always made Blanca laugh. I’m glad that Blanca retired and was able to spend much time with you all. Que Dios la tenga en su Gloria! Con mucho cariño, Adriana Pichardo
