Blake, my little brother, my best friend, my go to guy is gone. Blake was in my life for 59 years 3 1/2 months, and my heart was broken on July 14, 2020. I can't imagine my life without him. Blake's sense of humor, his quick wit, the kindness and love he showed for me and the rest of his family will be forever missed. Blake came to the hospital everyday after my stroke. He came everyday to the rehab hospital, I so looked forward to his visit and his encouragement. Blake will always be in my thoughts and in my heart everyday of my life. I miss Blake so much, I will always remember how hard he worked, how smart , how funny and how much he loved me, Phil, Paul, his mom, dad, his wonderful children, Brittany, Meaghan, Heather, Hannah, Logan, Maddie and his grandchildren, Lillian, Elena and Levi. Be at peace, my dear little brother Blake. Your sister Cindy will always love you and miss you everyday of my life.
