Blake James Mitchell
Blake, 28, of Charlotte, NC, left to Heaven on July 30, 2004, once wrote, 'Slowly, everything seems to get better, prayed, dreamed, we could come together'. These were the unrecorded lyrics of a spiritual musician who knew his words would always bring light to his family and friends on any day.
Blake was born October 4, 1975 in Lake Forest, Illinois. At the age of eight, his family moved to Charlotte, NC, where he spent his youthful years learning about life with his family and friends. At age fourteen, he moved with his mother and brother on a cross-country journey to California.
Throughout his life, he touched so many lives that no words could describe this beautiful person. This angel was brought to us for 28 years to spread his goodness, love, humor, and passion for music.
Blake's life will be an echo in Heaven for all who knew him. His family and loved ones know his echo will whisper to all that need to hear; those who knew Blake understand the meaning of these words.
Blake's immediate family includes his father, Jim Mitchell; mother, Judy Romans; fiance, Liz Acosta; stepfather, Tom Romans; brother, Tyler; sister, Devon; step brother, Michael; step sister, Katie; grandmother, Flora Mitchell; grandmother, Til Maltes and family.
Tomorrow, August 4, 2004, his family will gather to celebrate his life at the Pineville Chapel of McEwen Funeral Service at 7:00 p.m. The family will receive friends following the service.
For those friends that desire, memorial contributions may be made to the donor's favorite charity in his honor.
