This is my mom Blanchie McCarthy. She was a strong, intelligent woman. She graduated from A&T University then went on to teach in the school system. My mom was beautiful on the inside as well as the outside. She cooked great Southern food, collard greens, dirty rice, fried chicken, you name it. I thank God for her being a mother to me and my sister. Always loving and caring for us. -Catrinia Smith
