Sweet Blake was one of the kindest people I’ve ever met. We had a lot a fun times together. My favorite memory of you was when we had the best date ever in the park, on a blanket with Grizwold. We talked, laughed and watched the stars for hours even though it was freezing. You were the kind of guy who walked me to my car across campus because our biology class ended late and it was dark, even though you knew I had a boyfriend at that time. You were a gentleman. You were so, so smart. I’ll miss our intellectual conversations and our playful debates. You inspired me and opened me up to a plethora of new things. You loved with your whole heart and soul. You were a beautiful person. You will be very sorely missed by your family, my family, your friends and me. You will forever hold a very special place in my heart and I will never forget you and how you helped me grow.

Blake always found the good in every moment, no matter the circumstance. His humor changed the atmosphere. He would always quote the most random movies at awkward times and he loved it. His sweet southern charm always made me smile and he was such a gentleman even when he didn’t want to be. He always loved music and especially the classics. We were adventurous once and adopted a pup and named him Hendrix. That little guy made us so angry sometimes, but gave us good laughs. Blake was my favorite person and I will never forget the simple memories of cooking dinner when neither of us really knew what we were doing. I will forever miss you Wedg.

It was my pleasure to meet and know Blake through my daughter Martha. He accompanied us on a vacation trip to Chicago where his dry sense of humor brightened our excursions and conversations. His consistent gentlemanly behavior and kindness was a joy and made the trip so much better. Even in the bitter cold he never lost his graciousness and endeavored at all times to contribute to the group.
He will be missed. I send prayers for him and my warmest regards and prayers to those who loved and knew him.
