Hi uncle robbie,
Today is March 17,2017 and tomorrow is the 16 year anniversary of the accident and i'm missing you more than ever. Even though it is early in the day when i am writing this it is already a very tough day. I've cried during every single one of my classes and one of my teachers knew you and remembers that terrible day that we lost an amazing person. I know I've said this almost every time I've written something to you and i'm gonna say it again; i can't wait to get the chance to finally get to know you. The only thing that keeps me going on the hardest days is knowing that every day that passes is one less day that i have to wait to meet you. I really wish i could have gotten the chance to get to know you and truly call you my uncle but unfortunately I didn't. I can't wait until that day comes because even though I never formally met you, I still love you and miss you more than anything. Please continue to watch over my family and I, the entire police department and everyone else that misses you dearly. I love you my beautiful angel and i hope you continue to enjoy your time with bobby up there. Miss you and love you.
