Blake, you were truly one in a million. There are so many wonderful words to describe you. There are so many stories of you that I could share, but one of my favorites was during 8th grade year, when you and some of the other boys in Mr. Dick’s homeroom created the game of “Human or Not Human,” which was when we would place either a classmate under a blanket or put several objects under the blanket, and we would have to guess if the object was human or not human. I remember you looking out the door and inviting random people, whether it was another student or faculty member, to come play this game. You were very good at the game too… you could put chairs and desks under the blanket and form it into the shape of a human. I will greatly miss all the cheer and laughter you brought us and the smiles you put on our faces. Thank you for all the memories and for teaching me to live life to the fullest, to be grateful for what I have, and to love all. I will cherish these memories and our friendship forever. I love you, Blake.
