Officer Blackwell,
I sure wish I could of met you.

You are very well respected in the Blackwell family and as a police officer of Baton Rouge City. I know your grandson, Brandon, is following in your footsteps, and you should be very proud. I know you have inspired him in so many ways.

Thank you for your service.
