My deepest condolences to the Nordstrom family. Blake was an exceptional man and leader who inspired you to always give the best you had with a smiling face. Here is a small poem that I would like to share in remembrance of Blake. The man is a success who leaves the world better than he found it; who has never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty and everyone around him or failed to express it, who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had. You will be missed.
