Blake's Dad's Story


I wanted to drop you a card to let you know that I’ve thought about you a lot in the past fourteen months.  My son Blake died in an automobile accident on November 4, 2009.  He was only twenty years old.  My world was turned upside down and I know that my life has changed forever. 

Blake was a beautiful young man.  So full of life.  He loved LSU football, hunting, fishing, and he loved people.  He was my “little buddy”.  At the time of his death he was about 6’ 3” tall so he wasn’t very little anymore.  But he will always be my little boy.  It does my heart good that something positive came from my son’s death.  I’m glad that because my son chose to be an organ donor that it has helped to improve your quality of life.  I’ve enclosed a picture of Blake because I’m not sure that just my words do justice to trying to describe him. 

I hope that one day I can meet you, to be able to look into your eyes and to see that part of my baby lives on.

God bless.
