Blake Lee Cremation,Memorial,Plaque

My name is Wade T. Lee and I am Blake J. Lee's brother and next-of-kin.  I've started this campaign to help cover the final expenses of my brother, Blake Lee.  Blake took his life on Thursday, August 23, 2018.  I would like to handle his final wishes according to his instructions with the dignity and respect he deserves.  ALL donations will go directly to the cost of his cremation, the purchase of 2 burial plaques (required, as I am burying 1/2 of him above our Daddy and 1/2 of him above our Mama), and the enormous expenses related to the clean-up of the space where Blake used a firearm to end his life.  Any donations are humbly appreciated.  If you cannot donate monetarily, please donate spiritually by saying a prayer for Blake, as well as for me.  I am not too proud to request Divine Intervention, which is desperately needed.  

Blake was a kind and loving soul.  Blake loved Sugar Land, Texas, where my parents raised us.  We shared in our mutual pride of the city, named after the Imperial Sugar Factory.  Blake was enamored with the many dogs that graced him with their Godly presence, including Lily, the one he left behind.  Blake was SO loved by SO many, and there are too many people who are experiencing this unbearable loss with me.  I know because I've cried with them.  Blake helped many people during times of personal struggle, including myself.  He must have been in such despair to have felt the need to commit suicide with a firearm.  I will never understand why and I will never have the many questions I have answered.  I just wish I had been able to do something that could have helped my brother.

Blake, I will forever remain beholden to have been graced by your light, your spirit, and your soul.  You were a good big brother.  I am so incredibly heartbroken and in such sadness, and it will take a very long time for my heart to mend.  I miss you terribly, your wicked sense of humor, your very audible laugh, your political arguments with me, your unbelievable home-cooking, and your constant reminders for me to "do the right thing."  Be at rest now, sweet brother.  Be at one with the Universe.  Be with Mama and Daddy.  Be with Chico, your darling Chihuahua.  You deserve it.  I will forever carry you in my heart and I will take care of Lily according to your wishes.  May you enjoy the next chapter of your journey.  Godspeed!

Your Loving Brother,
