hey uncle robbie,
I can't believe it's already been 17 years since you've been gone. I miss you a lot even though I never got the chance to get to know you. I heard you were a great guy and pretty funny too. I wish you could still be with us today but i bet you're having lots of fun up there with bobby. Everyone misses you a lot and not a day goes by that I don't think about you. I look forward to the day we finally get to meet and until that day comes I will live out my life here on earth and know that you're in my heart and that you're always there with me watching over my family and I and all the rest of your family and friends that miss you very much and the entire police department that is doing their job to protect the town that you once protected and made the ultimate sacrifice for. Until the day we meet again, I love you and miss you.
