I cherish such fond memories of Mrs. Blaha. Having grown up in Saint Remy and attending the Church and Sunday School, Mrs. Blaha truly shaped me a child and teenager. Mrs. Blaha will be remembered as a kind, faithful, and influential woman whose gentleness and smile I shall always remember. My deepest condolences to the Blaha family. May you all find comfort knowing that Mrs. Blaha is with the Lord. Sincerely, Bob and Mila Jordan
