    Rest in peace, Blake. Mrs. Edwards and the whole family: stay strong because that’s what Blake probably would have wanted. He will be sincerely missed by all, especially his loving and gorgeous wife. My heart bleeds for her and the family.

  2. Anya Says:

    Long ago, a group of us were so fortunate to see Mr. and Mrs. Edwards work together on a TV series. I was in awe, of course, and so grateful.

    In heaven, I know you’ll gather a wonderful cast to supportingly look down upon those you love and down upon those performing humanitarian endeavors and lasting meaningful art. These are future lights that you helped to fan a flame. Thank you.

    My heart goes out to the family and friends.
