So sorry for your loss. I always enjoy my interactions with Blake especially talking about his great dishes. He was a great part of the community and always a good friend.
Brad and Ruby, thank you for your kind words and for the beautiful wind chimes. I have sat out on the front porch and they have brought comfort.
Paula and Don, I never had the pleasure of meeting Blake but my mother (judy) has told me about him through the years. What a wonderful person. I am so sorry for your and the world’s tragic loss. Jennifer Cassidy
Thank you, Jennifer, for your kind words. This is the worst thing to ever happen. We miss him so much.
Dear Paula and Family …
When we think of those who have passed, we look to the clouds as the address to where we send our thoughts to speak with them again. We tend to imagine that our messages must travel far, far away before our loved ones receive them.
When my mother passed, I went on a journey to learn how others dealt with such a difficult time. I found that some people subscribed to the belief that the world after death, heaven, is not so far away; but rather, it is next to us and only three feet above us. The idea of my mother’s soul being so close, brought me great comfort. Is it so? Don’t know, but it made me feel closer, which soothed my pain and lifted my heart that was way too heavy to carry alone.
Few things in life are as painful as loss & grief. Losing your son must be nearly unbearable. Perhaps thinking of him as closer than you thought, will bring you strength & a bit of comfort.
Our deepest sympathy & thoughts are with you. We are so sorry for your loss. Love, Ria & Travis
Thank you, Ria. Appreciate you keeping in touch.
Thank you all for the wonderful comments. Had a little trouble sleeping so finally got up, got my coffee, sat down to gather my thoughts, looked at my watch and it was 7:22. The date of his birth so I knew he was with me. I have been looking through all things I have found that his friends have written. It is bittersweet. So many wonderful memories of all the friends and family who spent time at our home with Blake. We love each memory and what you all meant to him and us.
So very sorry for your loss my prayers are with u my heart brakes for you.
Thank you, Donna.
