My deepest condolences on Blake’s passing. He was a warm and lively person and he will be sorely missed.
Elizabeth and family, I knew Blake from living in the same building, and from often running into each other on walks in a nearby cemetery. He was a dignified and knowledgeable man who I respected and I always enjoyed crossing paths with him. He will be missed by all who knew him even a little, for that was the kind of man he was.
