In Memory

Blake Charles Thomas, August 17, 2004 - December 14, 2004

Monday and Tuesday I had to do one of the hardest things I've ever done in my life: Attend visitation and a memorial service for a four-month-old baby. I've never seen such a tiny casket. It was so heartbreaking...

After he fought so hard for four months (his second open heart surgery wasn't going to be until sometime after the first of the year), Blake went back to Riley last Monday for a routine procedure. When it was over, his oxygen levels suddenly dropped, his heart stopped, and after CPR and infant life support that kept him going until Tuesday, they lost him on Tuesday afternoon.

I don't really even know what else to say. Please pray for my family, especially his parents--my cousins Rebekah and Kevin. Blake was their first baby.
