John Blake, Jr.
July 3, 1947 – August 15, 2014

We are remembering John and holding him in The Light on this one-year anniversary of his Transition. A year without John has been challenging but we have been comforted by all of the expressions of love from so many of you who were touched in some way by his music, his generosity, his mentorship, his stories and jokes and his unforgettable laugh. So on this day, make music with friends and family, share your stories of John, mentor an up-and-coming young artist, laugh — live a life with meaning. The Blake Family.
