  1. I am so sorry to hear of this loss. “HB”, one of my 1st cousins, used to play together as children. I have many fond memories which now seem like a lifetime ago. Rest in peace Blake.

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. I enjoyed my conversations with Blake and he was a good friend to my late husband Ronald. Those two could talk for hours. I took over my husband’s contracts when he passed as well as I was the OIC/Supervisor at Wendell, Zebulon and Knightdale offices where I first met Blake. Blake will be greatly missed by me and my drivers.

  3. Mgr. Transportation & Networks

    Blake was a wonderful person, he did everything possible to move the mail, he looked after his employees. I would have a smile every time I saw Blake, he was funny and such a lovable person. He will be missed. He is in a wonderful place, I am happy for him.
