Hello Kouri family

As the months and days pass since Blake has left us I can not express how much I miss and love him. My thoughts and prayers are with your whole family. Hold tight the memories you have of Blake for comfort. Cherish the dreams you dream of Blake as treasures. Blake left all of us with so many wonderful and unforgettable memories. Blake taught me how to live life to the fullest and dream big or how Blake would say it “It’s all about living it up big”!
I miss and love Blake so much and I just wanted to send my love to you.
Goodbye for now, until we met again.

Dear Kouri Family,
We don't personally know one another, but our paths have crossed several times through the years. The oldest of my three children, Tyler, died November 20, 2008, at twenty-three years old. This past year has been a nightmare, but I am told that in time we do come to accept that which is totally unacceptable. I am so sorry for the loss of your wonderful son. Feel free to contact me. May God show his mercy to us all.....

I know you all will stay strong through this hard time and always know that my thoughts and prayers go out to you and Blake.

I was so sorry to hear about your loss. My thougths and prayers are with you. Andy and Bily Jr also send their prayers. Dr Kouri you took such great care of my boys that they didn't want to get too old to see you. Thank you for your diagnosis of Andy's asthma and for the great care. Without you he would not have grown up healthy. May you find some peace because I know it will take a long time for your hearts to heal. My wonderful Dad died on my birthday in June and my heart still aches. I cry eveyday and my anger at God is still with me but I know with time it will get better. I undestand your grief and share your pain. May you all find peace and a full heart. All my love, Gloria Reed and family.

Dr. Kouri and family,

Dave and I were so very sorry to hear about Blake. Losing a child is the worst possible pain a parent can go through. You were a wonderful doctor for our children and we miss you so much. I enjoyed Blake while he was at Eagleview and I know anyone who knew him will feel the loss of his presence. Please know that we are thinking of you and praying for you and the family during this time. We miss you and love to you all. (I learned of this too late to come to the memorial but would have been there if I'd known.)

Dear Kouri Family, This morning I watched a beautiful sunrise, and my eyes filled with tears as I thought of Blake and your family. I felt inspired to share lyrics from a favorite song (On Eagle's Wings): "And He will raise you up on eagle's wings; bear you on the breath of dawn; make you to shine like the sun; and hold you in the palm of His hand." God Bless You Blake.

We are so very sorry to hear about your beautiful son, Blake. Although we never had the opportunity to meet him, we felt like we knew Blake a little bit from all the stories during twenty years of office visits. Dr. Kouri, we are so appreciative of the extraordinary care you gave to Katie & Michael. It hurts so much to know that someone so special to us has had such a loss. Please accept our deepest condolences.

My deepest condolences in this very difficult time. My name is Luke Pilniuk and i had the distinct pleasure of attending Graceland with Blake. I cannot put it to words the amount of remorse i am feeling for your lose. Many of my fondest memories at school are connected with him. He treated me like a brother and redefined what it is to be a true friend. He will forever be in my heart and never forgotten. My thoughts and prayers are with your family during this time.

We are all so very sorry for your loss. Our son John and daughter Kelle knew him from Graceland and we are relatives of his friend Drew Schaal. He sounds like quite a wonderful young man and it is just so unfair that he is gone at such a young age. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all as you go through this difficult time.

Dr. and Mrs. Kouri, Grant & Nadia,

You were our boys' pediatrician for over 20 years and although we never met your family, your stories said it all. Your face lit up when you talked about your kids, how you beemed with pride. We can't even imagine the pain you are in right now and saying time heals all wounds seems so trite. Just remember the good times and know that your son is always with you and one day you will see him again. Be strong and may God bless you and keep close through your suffering. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dear Dr. Rickie, Sho, Grant, and Nadia,
Today I learned of the unfortunate and untimely death of your son, brother, and my friend Blake. There are no words to describe the utter grief and heavy heart I am feeling right now, and I cannot possibly imagine the shock and sorrow that has been thrust on your family as well. I will always remember fondly the experiences I was blessed to share with little Blake. Blake will always remain a beam of light. It is not fair that he was taken from us too soon. It feels so unfair that such a smart and talented young man's life has ended with so much living left to do.
During this difficult time for your family, we would like to extend a helping hand if you will have it. You have always been my second family, so please don't hesitate to call me for any reason. I love you all so very much!!! Please accept our sincerest condolences and know that we are here for you.
All of our love,

I watch Blake grow up from a little boy into an awesome young man. I will always remember his huge smile and the pink tutt tutt. He was loved by his family and friends and will never be forgotten. Blake may your rest in peace and we will miss you dear boy!

Dr. Kouri and family,

You were such a huge part of helping our children as a Dr. We came to visit you the day after moving to Colorado Springs when our daughter was ill and we didn't have a Dr. During the many years they were growing we discussed our children of similar ages. I can't imagine what you are all going through but know Blake must have had a wonderful family. So sorry his life was cut way too short. Our best to all of you!

Dear Dr Kouri and family, Words, of course, cannot express the sadness and the loss you must be feeling. Just know that many, many people have you in their prayers, and hope that your memories of Blake will help with your sorrow. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. With a heavy heart-Sandra Chavez and Family
