In Memory of Blake

Blake F. Williams was one of my dearest friends. And I am devastated to find out that I now have to use the term was.

I had lost contact with him a little under a year after I got married. I have been putting in searches for him off and on for the past few years. I tried again today while thinking about his birthday coming around the corner. I was lead to this link today.

I am more than heart broken to find out he passed away less than 6 months ago. Did he know how very, very special he was to me? Next to my husband and dad, he is/was the most special and influential male in my life. The memories I have. And that's what is breaking me, all I have is memories now. They are MANY but will never be enough. I will never again get to see/talk to my friend here on earth. I will miss those hugs. Those ones where my face is in a stomach because he was sooooo tall.

What hurts even more is I do not know what happened. I am trying to get in contact with his family to find out, but I hate to bring more pain with my questions.

Blake, I know you are truly where you deserve to be in Heaven, but earth is a much darker place without your smile and wonderful heart. I look forward to seeing you again, but until then, my heart is not quite whole without you. I love you very much and will NEVER forget you.

Hi Toby. I'm so sorry about the death of your friend. I'll be praying that God will carry you through this rough time. You're in my thoughts.

Thank you both. You both got to meet him. Veronica, you met him at the wedding. I heard he had a vacumm in his car and was able to help pick up all the "rice" hearts.
Tiffany, you met him in high school when I got reconnected with him after he had moved away in middle school. But I'll be talking about both in later posts.
