- The supposed pinnacle vacation turned heartbreaking when he and his father got caught up in a rough area on the beach.
- Blake mourned for the next year. Then he leaned into his relationship with God, and he was able to cope.
- A significant attribute to his coping process was his dad’s letter that his mom handed to him the day after his dad drowned.
- His mom got the letter out of his dad’s suitcase; his dad was supposed to give it to him on their trip.
