Era,

Heartfelt condolences to you and your wonderful family. I have the fondest memories of Simmie behind the register with all of the Wall Street Journals stacked up on the end of the counter. His smile and his laugh are unforgettable. He was one of my very favorite faculty friends and I will always remember him.

Your friend,

Sincere condolences to the Blakney Family during this most difficult of times. May God's spirit sustain you with comfort only He can give and peace only He can provide. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Sincerely,

I shall always remember Dr Blakney for his wonderful laugh and loving smile. He was simultaneously able to give wisdom, guidance, and the space to make your own mistakes to teenage boys. We will miss you. God rest your soul.

Smart, learned, cultured, handsome, a consummate gentleman with a zest for life. He and his terrific partner raised 3 remarkable men, including one of my favorite human beings of all time. To come from the time and place he did, and accomplish all he did...the man was a giant. I share in this loss.

Dr. Blakney has been on my mind for several weeks. I remembered his birthday was the 1st of June and I had been meaning to call him. I am so brokenhearted now. Again that old phrase, "don't put off for tomorrow what you can do today" comes to haunt me. He hired me in 1975 to work in the Mathematics Department and he was a great mentor. He meant more to me than he probably knew. In fact a few weeks ago I placed a note of thanks on facebook to both he and Atty. Eddie Cole for their support and belief in me when I was a young adult. My prayers are with the family. He was proud of his sons.

Dr. Blakney was always an inspiration to me, both near and far. His family is my family; I share the loss, yet I celebrate the life. May the peace of God be with the Blakney family, now and always. Love always, Jimmy Parks
