    dearest Blain, and all family
    Im saddened by this news, it hit my heart like a ton of bricks, Ive always considered blain a good friend and a good man. we grew up together and ran in the same crowd, and from time to time id get to see him, and it was always a big hug and a lengthy conversation about the hole family, we were a little rowdy back in are younger years, but we turned out to be good citizens and honest men. i remember when his kids were just babys, and i know now that they are all older, and i feel for them, because i too lost my father at areal young age, and it hurts like nothing i ever felt. i can only say god bless them, and dont break, just bend, keep one foot in front of the other and do good things for people like your father did, and stay close. Its gonna be so hard to know i will never get to hug him again or see his smile, but i do have some great memorys of him that make me smile, and ill always tell his story’s. ill never forget how he used to drive around in this old gradma car and he always had a bible on the dash, and he said it helped him to not get tickets, lol ๐Ÿ™‚ you will be missed my old friend. im so sorry i didnt know you were sick, i didn’t see this comming

    Dear Family,
    I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your dear loved one and send you my sincere condolences. May you find comfort from God’s word at Revelation 21:3,4 and John 5:28,29. Heartfelt prayers are with you and your family.
