We were so sad to hear that Blake had passed away. He was such a sweet little boy when we kept him. He always had a sweet smile on his face (except when he had to take that nasty medicine.) We know that he will be missed, but he is with the Lord now. He is perfect now and we will see him again someday. Call if you’re in Amarillo sometime.
Joel, Just wanted to let you know we are thinking of you and your family at this time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Our love,
Joel, Dixie and Dax, Thinking of you at this time. We will always remember Blake; he loved the water faucets. I still keep the knobs up on the window seals and think of him everytime. May the sound of Blake’s name always bring peace to your hearts and joy to your ears. Karla, Shelby and Shayne Melban
To Blake’s parents, Joel and Dixie, Your individual strength in the face of adversity was encouraging at Blake’s memorial services. And, you had great wisdom in celebrating his life. It is so easy to ask, “Why?” Yet the “why” no longer matters, for God has now allowed Blake to be transformed from an earthly body and an earthly existence to a perfect body and a heavenly existence! I thought of Matthew 10:29 several times once I heard Blake has passed away. This verse basically says not even a sparrow can fall to the ground without our Father’s consent. Our Father God finally gave his consent for Blake to fall on earth and rise again in the heavens! What a wonderful event for Blake!
Dear Mr. Williamson, My name is Tammy (Nelson) Smith. I was Blake’s teacher at Rosedale School for five years. I have been on maternity leave and just recently learned of his death. Blake was a sweet young man and his smile would melt your heart. I was honored to have him in my classroom. I extend my sympathies to you and your family. Sincerely, Tammy Smith
