Ashley,

I served with Blaine at Ft. Rucker. One thing was always clear to me, Blaine loved you very much. We often talked about our daughters, football and everything else under the sun. Right now it''s hard to think of your dad without shedding tears but one day, exactly when I don''t know, but one day we''ll remember him with a smile. Right now, we all have the sure hope of the Resurrection that we will be with him again.

To Ashley and the King Family,

It is with deepest sympathy that I write you, the family of Baline King. I am a former coworker of Baline on Fort Rucker, AL. He is missed. Cherish all those wonderful memories which will keep him alive in your hearts. I am praying for the strength and courage of your family to get you through this difficutl time. My favorite scripture is Prover 3: 5-6. and also remember - The LORD is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made (Psalms 145:9).

Blaine did so much for me when I was assigned down there as a new Judge Advocate and I will be forever grateful. He, with Mike L., made coming to work to fun. Professionally, he launched my career and I make an effort to give him credit whenever I am briefing Army legal offices around the world. To this day, I keep a tiny post-it note that he passed me during a trial in which I was being dismantled -- I can''t repeat what it says, but it always gives me the biggest smile (at trial, it made me laugh out loud and I got in trouble with the judge -- Blaine''s proudest moment with me). Miss you buddy.

To all of Blaine’s family my deepest sympathy:
Blaine and I were professional colleagues and good friends for close to twenty years. I was truly saddened today to learn of his passing. He will be missed by us all. As civilian personnel lawyers, Blaine at Fort Rucker and I at HQ TRADOC spent many hours over the years discussing complex legal issues involving Fort Rucker, AL. Blaine’s talents as a labor lawyer, particularly during the 90’s, were a great asset to the Army and Fort Rucker. Blaine loved his parents, his family, the farm, and most of all his dear “Ashley.” Blaine and I rarely had a conversation without there being some mention of Ashley and what she was doing. I know Blaine is now at Peace with the Lord and reunited with the father he held dear to his heart. Please accept my heartfelt condolences, and may God comfort you all in your time of sorrow.

I am very sorry to hear that Blaine has passed. I met Blaine at Goshen''s Centenniel Celebration and chatted with him and Dot and Bill after the program. I already knew Dot and Bill as I popped into the Senior Center all along and Bill was a terrific encourager when I played the piano. The second time I saw Blaine was long after Bill passed, and I visited Dot in her hospital room in Troy. Blaine was there caring for her. Such a great family, and a caring son in Blaine. My sympathies go to all of you. May God give all of you comfort.

Mrs. Dot, Ashley, Deborah and Norm:

Our prayers are certainly with you during this difficult time. God does not always reveal the purpose for disappointments and pain that you experience in your life, but he does show the way to the other side of grief if you lean on him. Blaine was an extraordinary person and through his friendship we had an extraordinary bond. We will continue to pray for your strength knowing that the Lord will give you comfort. - Job 33:4 says "The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life". From our first breath to our last, we are in God''s care.

The Deveridge Family

I was saddened to hear of Blaine''s passing. I worked with Blaine through the National Guard and Reserves. At this tough time, it is hard to understand why God calls some before we think it is time. But the God that calls provides the peace and comfort. May His peace and comfort be with you.

My condolences at Blaine''s passing from another old soldier who served with him at Ft. Rucker many years ago.

Ashley and the King family:

I had the pleasure of working with Blaine during several summers in the 80s and 90s, as I performed my Reserve duty at Fort Rucker. He had a terrific sense of humor and was so devoted to you, Ashley. He taught me not to let the little stuff get you down. He will be missed.

John Imhof
  
Ashley and Blaine''s Family:

Blaine was one of the truest friends I have ever had. When your were an infant in Alaska he and I spent many great days together and I felt as if you were a child of my own. I''m sure you know how devoted he was to you, but I will reinforce the notion - there was nothing more important in Blaine''s life than you were. Over the years we only kept in touch sporadically, but the friendship never lost its magic. He will be missed, but his deeds and actions will carry on in you and all the rest of us who were blessed enough to know him. John Imhof

Dot, Ashley, and Deborah,
From the first day I met Blaine in June 1994 at Fort Rucker, we became friends, and later the bond became one of brotherhood. I know that Blaine postively impacted the lives of many with his wry sense of humor, his kind heart and his love for his family. Many many people owe BJ a debt of gratitude, and he never expected anything in return except to help someone else in turn. I spoke with him several times a week over the years, and always always his concern was first for his family and then others. I often told Blaine that he should take care of himself as well as he did others. I will miss you brother; friend; co-counsel in life. Every day, and forever, and until we meet again, always look up and down range.

Teresa Davis
  
Dot, Ashley, and Deborah,

I''ve just returned from leave (NC). I am sadden to hear about Blaine and I want you to know that I care deeply for your family. You are in my thoughts and prayers. I just don''t have the words to express how I truly feel. You will always have a special place in my heart.

I remember Blaine from our JAG basic course. He was a true southern gentleman and a credit to our class and our legal profession. He will be missed.

Our deepest sympathy to Blaine''s family. I served with Blaine at Ft. Rucker in the early 1980s. He was a fine man, attorney and soldier.

I recently learned of Blaine''s passing from The Army Judge Advocate General''s announcement. My deepest and sincerest condolences to the family on your loss.

I served with Blaine when I worked at Ft Rucker SJA Office from 1989-92. Blaine was always fun to be around and I recall how he lit up when he talked about his family. I recall always seeing Blaine smiling when we talked about things and always appreciated his advice/mentoring. I know he will be missed by all who knew him. He and his family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Respectfully,

Scott Sasser
Master Sergeant, U.S. Army (Retired)

Oue deepest sympathies go out to Blaine''s family. We had the pleasure of sharing good times with Blaine while I was stationed at Fort Rucker from 1990-1992. We want to echo the sentiments above - we have never known a father more proud of his daughter. We will miss his zest for life and endearing humor. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

Mrs. King and Ashley, I am so sorry to hear of Blaine's passing. I have thought of him often over the years and the good times we had. I read on facebook a minute ago where Ashley was trying to get home for her Dad's funeral and the same time I read it I was getting a phone call from my son Alan because he was reading it also. The two of us have a lot of memories with Blaine. I enjoyed the trips to the farm with him. Ashley, always remember how much your Daddy loved you. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

Ms Dot and family

I have just learned of Blaine's passing. Although I never had the opportunity to meet him, I am sure he was a cousin to be proud of. I know he meant to world to Bill and yourself. My thoughts are with you.

Ashley,

i just learned of Blaine's passing a few moments ago. I was in the JAG Corps with Blaine over a period of many years. Blaine and I became close friends due to our mutual experiences of rearing daughters of the same age. Because of this I know how much Blaine loved you. My daughter is Crispin, you may remember me talking about her when i visited Blaine in Enterprise. Blaine and i also enjoyed talking about the mutual love we had for that Datsun 240Z he restored. When Blaine and I were around each other it was a laugh a minute. He had one of the most infectious personalities of anyone I've ever known. To know Blaine was to love him. I will always treasure the great memories we had together in Charlottesville, Birmingham, and Enterprise. My deepest belated sympathies to you and your family. Anthony Piazza
