In his introduction David said, "Blake has made his family very proud. He graduated from ACHS and then Western Kentucky University then decided he was going to stay with the family business. He earned his mortuary science degree from Vincennes University online while still working full-time. He has earned his funeral director and embalmers license from the state of Kentucky."
