    I am so sorry to hear of Blake's passing. He was a spitfire and we adored him and his wife.

    So sorry to hear of the passing of one of the sweetest people I had the pleasure of knowing. He was a wonderful neighbor and took the time out to remember the birthdays and graduation of my daughters! If only I can resemble his caring, sweet demeanor when I am his age.

    My Uncle Blake was one of my favorite people. He was always so charming and delightful - I have especially fond memories of him from when I was growing up. His positivity was radiant and he always had an entertaining story or short life lesson to share every time I saw him - and his giving me the lose change in his pocket was a generous way of making sure those lessons stuck forever. There were three - among many - that have stayed with me my whole life, in no particular order: love your Mom and Dad - they make you who you are; especially your Mom; your reputation and integrity and relationships are the most valuable things in life; and take half of every raise you get in your career and save them. Of course, he shared these lessons in the most interesting and charming way - that too made them stick. Anyway, I’ve always had to warmest of places in my heart for him. He was a truly great man: incredible husband, father, brother, grandfather, uncle. He will be missed. He helped shape many wonderful people. His legacy carries on. God bless you Blake Cardwell.
