I just found out about Blaine's passing this morning at the Honda Service Department. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for you and your son. We used to be neighbors on Robin Hood. My husband Joe passed in October of last year. Blessings to you, Bobbie Zarate 12/27/13
Just yesterday, I found out about Blaine's passing. I am so shocked and saddened. He was "my" service advisor at Crown Honda over the past 10 years and took such good care of my care and me. He had a wonderful, personal touch. Blaine will be sorely missed. My heart hurts for his family and friends.
We miss you in RCIA Blain. It's almost time for us to make our sacraments but I know you will be there with us
So sorry to hear about the death of Blain Stewart. It's rare that during the course of your everyday life you meet an individual that you trust, helps you feel safe, is reliable, always there, & predictable. That's what happened with me as I would bring my 2 small kids with me to get my car fixed at Crown Honda. My son has special needs. During the previous 6 yr. prd., I myself had experienced the loss of my mom and brother. During that time I began to really appreciate the consistent things of life, the things that DO stay the same and don't change. Well, the familiar, but never easy feeling of grief occurred today when my husband and I brought our Honda Odyssey in to do regular maintenance. My husband had driven to drop the car off & was coming a couple minutes later in our other car to pick him up. I was wondering why he was taking so long with Blain. Blain was always there, always handling things, always kind. My husband came out with Blain's obituary in hand & the explanation that he had passed away. Death is not very merciful, but it is the course of all of our lives eventually. Wow, I will miss him. It is hard for me to picture him not in the space when you drive into the garage. I am so sorry for his wife and son, as they grieve and miss seeing him in certain places that they would expect to. Allow yourself to feel the pain, even thought I know it will be hard. I will pray for your family as you experience the grief. He was a wonderful man, the little that I knew him. So sorry for your loss.
I just learned of Blaine's passing from Steve this morning when I was at Crown Honda. Though I dealt with various service advisors, I made most appointments with Blaine since I knew he would check my vehicle extra carefully and often advise me of potential maintenance I might need down the road. There was peace of mind when I made trips out of town if Blaine had been the one who checked things for me. I noticed he was absent last week when I stopped by, so when I returned this morning to pick up my car I asked about him. My prayers are with the family as we share in the loss of a fine man that will be missed greatly.
