Uncle Blair,
You were taken from this world far to soon, but you left behind a legacy of wonderful children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. The love and support they have for one another and for you is a testament to how you and Aunt Bev raised them and taught them. The memories you created in their lives, in my life and the lives of many others will not fade. Rest in Peace Uncle Blair, and give hugs to Nanny and Grandad Murphy, Uncle Keith and Auntie Gertie for me. I know they are just a few of those who are by your side right now. xo
