I Miss You Bobby

I really miss you Bobby. Do you remember the crystal heart you gave me for Valentines Day in the 4th grade? Well, I still have it and I want you to know it has been all over the world. When you came to see me that day at work to say goodbye, I never thought it would be the last time time that I saw you. When Ricky Boots pulled into our driveway that day, I knew something was wrong but it never crossed my mind that you had been killed. Going to your funeral was one of the worst days in my life. I am so proud of you for serving your country but so sad that you are gone. You will always be a part of my heart forever and always.
