Blu went to school at the Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired in Austin, Texas. He now lives with his parents, Larry and Denise, in Gilmer, Texas. This is a small town in east Texas. When Larry retired from the local police department, he took the opportunity to purchase a local dry cleaning business. Blu not only has a job, but he is helping out the family business.
Blu and his family are very active in the community and their church. A new grandbaby was also recently welcomed into the family and Blu is a proud and excited uncle. Needless to say, he stays very busy!
