  7. Blake was one of those rare individuals whos presence was enough to make you feel better. He had the power to make the day brighter when he simply walked into a room but then he smiled and the brightness that engulfed your heart was undeniable. I haven’t seen Blake in a while but his impact during our brief time together at Jacobs was unforgettable. Even though we didn’t spend time together regularly it was comforting to know he was out there. The world has lost a tremendous spirit and he will be sorely missed. My heart is with his family and friends.

  8. Blake, I will miss you and your visits to Walgreens.

  11. I went to school with Blake and Micah, needless to say they were very rare individuals!!! (in the best way) Blake was so sweet, funny, and made some of the craziest faces I have ever seen. He was a bit of a class clown and my memories of him always bring a great smile to my face. I have a ton of photos with Blake and I or Blake and others and I think he is making a silly face in every single one of them. Though I haven’t seen him in a while and only kept up with him on Facebook, I will miss him dearly. I was able to attend the funeral and wasn’t a bit shocked by how many people were in attendance. It was clear that he was very loved and touched a lot of hearts.
