James Blaine Divine III. Born: May 28, 1975; Deceased: December 7, 2011.
Sometimes a soul is born with too much light to contain and with many blessings often comes great pain. But bumps in the road of life does not define character, or darken a brighter soul. These brighter souls will not fit into the contemporary normal world. They bring a brilliant and distinct freshness that is definitely outside the box. Young at heart, chivalrous, an all around "good dude", Blaine was a mold breaker. He brought a unique and special gift to his family, his very special close friends that were more like family, and each person that his truly wonderful spirit graced. Had he been with us longer, there is no doubt, he would have touched the lives of many more in the way he was so known for doing. His loyalty, sense of duty and real courage, as well as his deep rooted sense of truth would allow him to do nothing less than stand against evil. There is great victory in having the courage just to stand. Most that knew him well would feel that he has no regrets. Blaine was, is, and always will be a brightness, lighting our lives as he passes from this journey to the next.
Blaine Divine is survived by his father, James Blaine Divine II; mom, Claudia Gossett-Divine; mother, Susan Sholar; brother, Anthony Divine; sister, Angela Sousa.
