"Dear Shannon,

I thought might like to know that as we near 2013, I still wear the "Let No Hero Be Forgotten" bracelet in honor and memory of Robert. I actually found it a church picnic and after many attempts to locate the owner, I continue to wear it. I was thinking that perhaps your son might like to have it. It's a bit worn but with love and pride for Robert's dedication and service. You can contact me at bgb4fam@gmail.com if you choose.
The sacrifice that you and your son endured is immeasurable. God bless you all."

"As the days approach to the 7 year mark of June 30, 2004...... I still miss you! Our handsome son is not a little man any more. He is turning 16 years old next month! My goodness he cracks me up!!!! He has the same mannerisms as you did! Talking with your hands, the way you always seem to have this "Bobby McGee" look on your face when joking around. Then there is the "Mac" look when telling one of your funny stories. I have a little bit of a daily reminder of how much I love and miss you! I know that you are watching over us and guiding Zack along the way. He will only be 16 don't guide him to far..... Yet!!!! Lol! Wait till he is at least 30!!!! ;-) I am proud of him and I know you are too! I just wish you were still here so we could all enjoy it together as a family.
You are and always will be my one and only true love, there is no man that could ever replace you! I love and miss you so much!"

I served with Robert while assigned to 1st Battalion 1st SWTG, Ft Bragg. After about 6 months of working with him and Gary Lowe I was then assigned to Special Foces Selection & Assesment at Camp McKall as an assessor for new SF recruits. I was hit deeply by learning of Roberts death and I hope this message finds you and the kids well. If there is anything I can do please don't hesitate to call information and call me. I currently live in Fairview, TN and am a licensed Private Investigator. I have seriously been contemplating reenlisting back into SF as the situation we are in disturbs me more and more.
