Marley I am so sorry for your loss. I know Tj loved you more than anyone could imagine. I still remember the first time yall met at Friendship Baptist Church in youth group. Tj is my cousin but was more like a brother. I remember him going to cherokee nc with us growing up. And how I made him play barbies with me, to us riding around in my car as teens… I’m gonna miss him like crazy. He always knew how to make some one laugh. Love you Tj and I love you marley and kids.

I am so saddened by this news. Mr. Blackwell was such an amazing man. He brought laughter, calm, and light to everyone he met. He talked about Marley often. He called her his “ride-a-die chick”. He loved her and told us often about how much he wanted so badly to make her proud. He talked about being a good father and how he didn’t want to miss any moments of his kids life. I will miss our talks and texts. Rest in Peace Mr. Blackwell. God has one of his angels back.
