Dear Uncle Bobby,

I'll never forget seeing you at Hampton Beach boardwalk in your uniform. I was beaming with price and you picked me up and put me on your shoulders carrying me around. To top it off you let me blow your police whistle. I've never have forgotten you or stopped thinking of you as a hero.

Love you always

Your niece Jackie
