I will always consider Taylor Blakely one of my very best friends, he still lives on with me daily. If not for him I wouldn’t have had the pleasure of knowing Kathy. Kathy, or “momma Blakely” as I called her, was a strong, fierce woman. She was a motherly figure to me throughout all the times Taylor and I spent hanging out together. The closer I grew to Taylor and the more I knew about Kathy and their family’s story, the more I admired her strength. She was intentional in how she communicated with us growing up. Lol, she set a tone that I never really wanted to test…! However, she was always so welcoming and loving when I would come to the house, or be hanging out at family & friend functions or gatherings. I was very saddened and shocked to hear about Kathy’s passing, but also am comforted in the thoughts of Kathy, Taylor and Glenn all back home together. Taylor loved his mom and dad so much, and to me that was extremely contagious. I’m unfortunately not able to make the service today, but had to put some thoughts and words together for the entire Blakely family. Kathy and Taylor had a sincere impact on my life and that is something I’ll carry with me forever. To Erin and Adam, thanks for sharing your family with us. They’ll always be an extension of family to me and I know their embracing each other again now. My condolences to the family as they celebrate Kathy’s wonderful life. Best Regards, Adam Fort

Erin, Adam & Family, I am so sorry for your loss. Some of my fondest memories of you mom & dad were weekends at Lake Greenwood, beach trips, sledding in the snow & cooking out. I will keep you in my prayers.🙏

It was special getting to know Kathy over the years when she would come visit her "baby boy". She was such a special, loving soul.
