Blake possessed so many great qualities but I will remember his sense of humor most of all. A few years ago at our state of the company meeting he was taking questions from the employees and someone asked if we had ever considered having a maternity section in our stores ( we would get that question from customers occasionally). His response was that we did have something’s online but they had looked into it and didn’t feel it would be that profitable in the stores. I will always remember what he said next ” besides, with our return policy – I’m not pregnant anymore, I’d like to return these”. Everyone laughed.
