Brenda, no words can be said that can ease your pain and loss of Blake. All of us who knew him knows that Blake was a grumbly big teddy bear with a soft heart. So many memories will be always with us. You, Jimmy, and Savannah will continue to be in our prayers and can always count of us to be there for whatever you may need us for. May God Bless Blake, you, and the kids.

Where do you start when losing a great friend. I start thinking back to our days working together when we were in drug law. We started the same time and loved working with a great group of guys. Because we started out at the same time we went through a lot of the same training, and being around each other all the time quickly became friends. There are so many stories that I have and remember fondly. We were young, single, stupid, and these things led to numerous fun times and adventures, some of the stories and good times I have been remembering over the last couple of days. A couple that I will share… like the time he called me to let me know he wouldn't make it to work that day, and the big tough guy with the gruff exterior was breaking up on the phone due to the fact that his dog Petey was going to need put down. He also used to tell me when we were working that we were Thunder (him) and Lightning (me), I would catch the bad guy and he would come and “lower the boom”. When I complained that it was a lot of pressure being lightning, as I am really not all that fast and it seemed that lightning was the tougher job, he would just give me that smile and say “Buddy, if I could be lightning I would, but I just can't.” Time moved on and our lives as well, and it seemed for a time our lives and families kept us busy and prevented us from keeping up with each other. However, I feel a bond was made where we could go without talking for several months but still pick up right where we left off when we would get together. Then I was blessed enough that our careers and lives came back in line and we ended up working with each other again. I loved the opportunity to have my friend give his unique greeting every time I saw him. By that time I was also blessed to grow closer with his fantastic family who I absolutely love. Brenda you are one of the most beautiful people I know, and what a wonderful mother, wife, co-worker, and friend you are. With the both of you working at the barracks, and the kids visiting often, you were the adopted family for everyone at the PSP Beaver barracks. I loved it when the kids came in and I got to perform my one magic trick with the disappearing coin. I think I must have done it a thousand times, but the kids enjoyed it every time, and never tried to figure it out, even though they could have easily as my talent level as a magician is very low. I feel honored that they know me as “Magic man”. Our old stories of from our wilder days turned to sharing stories of our lives as fathers and husbands, which I think we both enjoyed even more than the old days. Blake was a devoted father and husband, and it was always a source of enjoyment to see him in that role. I loved working with him, and often would say that if I had a choice of anyone to work a shift with me, my first choice would be Blake. You could always be assured that he would handle any duties that came to him and you would never have to worry about him taking short cuts. He always had sage advice with things like “don't anger the zone gods”. If I was on an incident that I needed help on I would rather Blake show up with his tie undone, nothing polished, as likely as not a hole in his back pants pocket, and sleeves rolled up, than anyone with spit and polish and a perfect uniform. You could always count on him being there for you. Brenda, Savannah, and Jimmy, if there is anything you need, in the next days, weeks, or years I truly hope you will make me amongst the first calls you make.
