We were shocked and deeply saddened to hear about Blake’s sudden departure.
Although I cannot say to have known him well, I can say that the only time I had the opportunity to speak to him I was impressed by his kindness and genuine interest in making sure that I was, as a Nordstrom agent, given enough business.
The occasion was his presence at the NPG offices during one of my visits to see me and thank me for having take care of hi father, mr Bruce, and his wife during their trip to Italy and Florence, my city.
My family and I wish to express our condolences to the whole Nordstrom family.
