Unfortunate News

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 13, 2013, 4:24 PM
  • Mood: Emotional
Blake Cognata, who was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma, a rare cancer that attacks the bones, passed away Saturday morning... and just days before his 18th birthday, which is on Monday, January 14th.

I really.... I just don't know what else to say. It has upset me to no end but really made me see life in a totally different way. He's motivated me to smile through the good and the bad, no matter how crummy life gets. He was so strong.

All of our town had a candles memorial for him last night on the hill of where our school is. It's an amazing sight to see.





It's crazy how much our community was effected by the tragedy. I barely knew this kid and he's changed my life in a matter of a few days.

But I'm proud of Blake.

And he's cancer free now. :)

I keep Blake's family and friends in my heart and thoughts!

Another soul has left the physical plane and entered the spiritual plane to watch us and guide us. He is free from the suffering and I am sure very moved and proud by all of you coming together. Remember he is always going to be there in your hearts and he will look for that strength in your hearts to help carry you all forward. He will help you all in your time of need and light your way through the memorable strength.
