Uncle Blake was the uncle everyone just loved. He always greeted you with a warm genuine smile. You had to love his southern drawl when he spoke. He always made you feel welcomed even if it was a 4:00 am coffee visit from his brother. He lived a blessed and happy life with Aunt Pauline until her passing and I'm sure Aunt Pauline was impatiently waiting for him and asking him what took so long . I can see his smile now. Rest in Peace we will miss you and we will see you again someday. Thank you for all the warm memories.
