Topper Roberts, Mr. Robert’s, and Damion,

Like the previous writer I too passed over your Bridge in NC on I-95. I researched you and read your Bio. I hope you family knows that there’s a larger family than just theirs that worship you and all of you Brave service- both military and Law Enforcement. We will forever be praying for your family and will ALWAYS REMEMBER YOU!
