BLAKE -- Verne Eugene "Gene" Blake Jr., born September 26, 1925 went to be with the Lord on November 12, 2004. This precious husband, father, grandfather, and friend is survived by Gwendolyn, his wife of 40 years; son Gene Blake III, daughter Stephanie Whitlock and husband Wayne, son Christopher Blake and wife Selina; grandchildren Isabella Blake, Tiffany, Katelyn, Spencer, and Brayden Whitlock. A resident of Albuquerque since 1927, Gene was born in Ann Arbor Michigan. After graduating from Albuquerque High School, he went on to obtain a Bachelors and Masters degree in Mechanical Engineering at U.N.M. After graduation Gene became a field engineer for the research and development division of the New Mexico School of Mines. In December of 1947 he began working at Sandia National Laboratory, where he remained until his retirement in April of 1983. Gene had a variety of engineering and supervisory assignments and eventually became manager of the Aerospace Nuclear Safety Department. He considered his efforts with Sandia's Strategic Systems Project most rewarding and always claimed to have been privileged to be involved in many of the Laboratory's most interesting projects. Following his retirement from Sandia, Gene decided to teach Computer Science at Temple Baptist Academy. Since he was passionate about camping, after a few years of teaching he retired again to fulfill a lifelong dream of driving to Alaska-not once, but twice. He loved time spent with his children and grandchildren. He always loved a good joke, a good meal, and he really enjoyed the challenge of repairing and restoring the unsalvageable. Not one of his family could want for anything more of him-except of course for more time. Anyone can go on to see him again if they put their faith in Jesus Christ and receive Him as their Lord and Savior as Gene did early in his life. A Memorial service will be held Wednesday, November 17th at 11:00 am at Temple Baptist Church, 1613 Arizona NE. The family will have a private interment at a later time. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that should friends desire, contributions may be made in his honor to the Temple Baptist Missions Fund at 1613 Arizona NE, Albuquerque, NM 87110.

BURGESS -- ADAM SHANE BURGESS, left heaven February 2, 2004, returned to heaven November 11, 2004. Adam Shane Burgess is our perfect sweetie-boy who possesses the most mild and pleasant temperament. Shane brightened our days with his angelic smile. His long-suffering and patience were unmatched. Many claimed Shane was wise beyond his age, which wisdom shone from his beautiful eyes. Shane never really cried, even as he endured pain and discomfort. Shane always smiled, kicked and slapped at hanging toys and all those who held him or sought to be within his reach-who were many and which was often. Shane, ever willing to smile, influenced everybody with whom he came in contact. Shane was so very pleasant to cuddle, and readily endured our smothering hugs, kisses and attention, which we clambered at every chance to give. Shane is survived by three loving siblings: his eldest big brother, Vance; his younger big brother, Scott; and his pretty elder sister, Tembisa. Shane is also survived by his beautiful, devoted and selfless mother, Shannon; father, Wade; and caring and loving grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. Shane leaves behind many admiring friends and fellow church members, and let us certainly not forget all those who provided love and exceptional medical attention: Drs. John Brandt and Craig Wong, Pediatric Dialysis Nurse Alice Chee, Jane Baechle, and all of the very dear-to-our-hearts UNMH Pediatric Intensive Care Unit nurses, and all other medical professionals. Shane, we miss you terribly, but have a perfect knowledge that you are free from all cares of this world and are working to prepare for the day Jesus Christ will return to this earth. We are ever grateful that we have a sure knowledge that soon we will enjoy a sweet family reunion which will last for eternity. Shane, we love you deeply. As promised, we eagerly await your ministrations. Memorial services will be held on Monday, November 15, 2004 at 5:00 pm in the Edgewood, NM chapel of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Shane will be laid to rest next to his great-grandmother, Billie Lampton, and great-uncle Bobby Lampton on Tuesday, November 16, 2004 at 1:00 pm at Memorial Gardens in Farmington, NM. In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to Shane's Memorial Fund at Sandia Laboratory Federal Credit Union at 1-800-947-5328. French Mortuary 10500 Lomas Blvd. NE 275-3500
