To say I'm sorry for your loss is an understatement. My heart is so heavy for you Bob and Paula for your devastating loss. Blades smile will forever be embedded in my heart and mind. When you mention Bourne basketball you can't help think of Blade and his family. He was always a respectful young man with that great smile. He will forever live in the hearts of the Moriarty Family and be missed. May you feel him around you always. Love you both.

I'll always remember Blade as my kind and funny cousin. I remember at Joanne and Kenny's anniversary reception how he kept our table smiling in jovial conversations and stories. Also, I remember how he came to my father's wake and was there for our family in our time of grief. He will be remembered, and his memory honored.

Bob, I am so sorry for your loss. I didn't have the opportunity to meet your son, but he sounds like an admirable young man and I’m sure you were very proud of him. Your pain must be great, but your love for him is greater.
You, your wife and family are in my prayers,

Blade has been one of our favorite relatives and it will be very hard to realize this wonderful young man is no longer with us. Although we live in Alaska we spent many vacations with Blade including a trip to Disney with his cousins, Lee and Eric from Alaska. And he joined fun time in Alaska at the moose pens, catching fish on Uncle Loren’s boat, going out on Chris’s commercial fishing boat and catching sand sharks, and visiting the Seward Sealife Center. We visited Blade during his years at New Hampshire and also UConn. Thanks to an unexpected trip back to New England, this fall, we got to visit with Blade once again! His Uncle Loren got an East Bridgewater Sports Athletic Award from E.B.H.S. We were so sorry to hear of the tragic passing of Blade. May your many memories of the things you did with Blade comfort you in this sad time.
Love, Aunt Sandra and Uncle Loren

Dear Bob and Paula....The Sherwood family is heartbroken. I've met Blade a few times while visiting Julian at UCONN. I remember his humor and energy! I loved that he and Julian hit it off and became quick friends. They had lots of laughs, shared boxing, made memories and most importantly looked out for each other. May your heart begin to heal knowing Blade is at peace. Sincerely Sharon and Jamie (and Julian)

I found this picture from the cruise we took Blade on. As you can see he was always up for anything.

May God give you strength
