    Blake was a close friend of the Smith family. I knew him since 2018 and helped mentor him into a adult. I only wish he had more time and that he is with his mother.

    I pray Blake is in heaven in the arms of the Lord. I have been praying frequently for his salvation.
    We tried to comfort him and gave him a place to live and to help him get on his feet. He is very much missed.
    He was gentle and kind.
    God rest his soul.

    Blake was so polite, kind and a loving Soul. Every time our paths crossed we’d say “hello Blake!” and he’d smile real big! Our prayers are with his dear sister Victoria and all the family and friends. May God surround you with His arms and comfort you all during this hard loss.
