  • Love you Blakey. Miss you more and more each day. Still in disbelief that this is happening. I think about the fact that I'll never get to see you again and it breaks my heart. Sometimes I think about it and I can't stop crying. You were one of the few people that could cheer me up no matter what was going on. You had an infectious smile that no one will ever forget. Although I'm confident we will meet again one day, it hurts knowing I have to wait so long. Mom fears that Carson and Jordan won't get to know their Uncle Blake, but I promised her that they are going to know everything about their Uncle, an American hero...all the good things anyway, hahaha. I love you so much. Until the day we meet again, I will see you in my dreams. Rest well my baby brother, for your mission is complete - B-rad

  • My Blakey, I don't know why this has happened but I will one day. They say that God takes the good ones first. I am beginning to believe this. You are an Angel now, one that watches over us as we try to go on day to day without you. You are my HERO. You gave everything you had for me and our country. Nothing can ever Thank You enough for that. I am honored to be your aunt, eternally grateful for all you gave and truly blessed to have had you in my life. Our time was too short but one day we will have eternity together so until then ALL OF MY LOVE AND HEART goes to you. Save a place for me Blakey. I do love you so.

  • Blake, I ask myself over and over, why the Good Lord decided to take you and have yet to come up with a good answer. I only know, whatever the reason, there is good to come of it; maybe it's only "the good die young"; however, I really believe he has a plan that includes using you, our hero, for a greater good. Momma and I miss you dearly and are so proud of you. Momma and I are grateful the Lord blessed us, choosing us to be your Parents and letting us share you for twenty one years. My heartbreaks everyday and I cry constantly missing you; but I know you are being embraced by the Lord and he is now taking care of you as Momma and Pops once did. Love You, Miss You and will see you on the other side.

  • Oh my darling baby heart is breaking missing you so much. I can't believe you are gone and I want you back so desperately. You are forever in my heart, thoughts and prayers. I love you so much bunches, bunches, forever and always! I used to be afraid of dying because I never wanted any of my children to go through the pain. I am no longer afraid because I know I will get to see you again. When it is my time.....we will be together......I LOVE AND MISS YOU SO VERY MUCH!
