We wanted to express our heartfelt sorrow for Blake's family's loss . I only knew Blake for a short time but I can honestly say that he impressed me the most with the love he had for his son Andrew. I witnessed Him being an excellent father and a loving respectful son. We were unaware that he had become sick over the last year and will regret not telling him bye on this side but know he is healed and in the arms of our Lord now with no pain. Love and prayers, Terry and Charlene

I just wanted to express how sorry I am of Blake's passing. When hired on with the White County Sheriff's Office last year I worked with Blake in the Courthouse. I enjoyed working with Blake everyday. He will be missed.

I knew Blake since we were kids, went to school with him and occasionally ran into him in a professional capacity as Law Enforcement Officers. He was a good guy and cop. My condolences to his family; he will be missed.

Dear Sue,
Please know I am thinking of you in this time of your great loss. I have been out of town & was catching up on the papers when I read of Blake''s passing. I remember so well his boyhood through you when we were working together in the Tax Assessors Office. May you find the strength, which I know you have, to walk through these days. I send you much love and many blessings, Elizabeth
