Family and friends gathered this weekend to honor their fallen loved one.
Exactly ten years ago this past week, Michael Blaise of Macon was killed while serving our country in Iraq. He was only 29-years old and left behind a wife and a loving family.
Saturday, a ceremony was held in honor of Blaise at the Colonel Blees Armory in Macon
"He was a very kind and giving man. He always liked to have fun. Some of his most proud moments was that he could do something to help somebody else. He was like that from the time he was a little boy. He just always enjoyed it," said Terry Blasie, Michael's Dad.
At the ceremony, his family relieved a sign that will be on the interchange of U.S. 63 at Macon. It will be dedicated as "Heroes Way" in Michael's name for the sacrifice he made to his country.
The Blaise family thanks the community for all of the support and for making this day possible.
