Tracy, my sincere condolences to the family. I only knew Blair for a short time and with every interaction he was sweet and kind. I pray God will lift your spirit and give you faith-filled hope to endure during this difficult time.

Blair is a genuine soul. I met him some years ago when he was a teenager. His dad and I dated and my daughter, Ashley, is the same age as Blair. They hit it off instantly. They loved to play video games together. Blair stole my heart with his goodness and his big beautiful smile. His dad and I may not have had a date on some nights, but my daughter and I had many dates with Blair. He would beg his father to come to our house. He was such a joy! His favorite words back then were, Oh...

I Worked with Blair for years at UPS. He was a good young kid that worked hard. His life was cut way too short . Best wishes to his family during this difficult time .
