I’ll never forget watching just after midnight that victory speech from California. I’ll never forget watching the next night when Frank Mankiewicz announced that Bobby had died. I’ll never forget watching all the days and nights following.

Never forgotten Bobby, never ever forgotten.

Hero then, Hero now, Hero Forever.
