Area couple help grant last wishes


I would like to thank Bruno and Marty Gad, of Clear Lake, for taking the time to fulfill Donald Blakney’s last wishes by bringing his ashes to his final resting place in his hometown of Lexington, Ill.

A memorial service was held on Aug. 9, 2013, in Lexington, Ill. Marty Gad presided over the service and said a few words as Don was laid to rest. They also delivered some other items that Don had wanted the city of Lexington to have.

Their time and money spent making sure his wishes were taken care of is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
