The week that Blake sent out that he was diagnosed with lymphoma and would be starting his treatment, my husband began his own radiation treatment for lymphoma (he had been diagnosed on October 8th). I wrote Mr. Nordstrom a simple email back sending my thoughts and prayers to him and his family. Not thinking he would response, he did, sending his thoughts, which was very touching to me. It saddens me to hear of his passing. With tears in my eyes, I send my sincerest condolences to the Nordstrom family. Emma Perry
