I AM THE MOTHER OF THE TWINS AUDRIONNA AND AALIYAH LOFTON. IT HAS BEEN A YEAR FOR ME AND THE MOTHER OF BOBBY. WE HAVE ALOT IN COMMON AND OUR PAIN IS THE SAME. I NEVER GOT TO KNOW BOBBY OR ANYTHING ABOUT HIM ON A PERSONAL LEVEL BUT THIS YOUNG MAN IS A "HERO" TO ME. GOD KNOWS I WISH I HAD A CHANCE TO MEET HIM BUT HIS MOTHER AND FAMILY STILL LIVES ON TO SHARE IN HIS LEGACY AND MEMORY. I STILL HAVENT MEET MICHEAL YET THE YOUNG MAN THAT SAVED AALIYAH. I AM SO THANKFUL TO YOU (MICHEAL) FOR BEING THERE ON THAT DAY. I LOOK BACK AND THINK THAT I COULD HAVE LOST BOTH MY GIRLS BUT GOD PUT PEOPLE OR SILENT ANGELS PER SAY TO WATCH OVER US OUR TIME OF DISTRESS. I HAVE TO ALSO THANK MR. PEELER AND THE HOSPITAL THERE IN BUDE, MS FOR THEIR KINDNESS AND WARMATH THEY SHOWED TO US. MR. PEELER AND HIS WIFE SHOWED SUCH COMPASION FOR BOTH FAMILIES. THAT DAY WILL ALWAYS REPLAY IN MINDS AND HEARTS BUT TO VALERIE(BOBBY'S) MOM AND I WE LOST OUR CHILDREN THAT DAY BUT TO YOU, THE WORLD LOST A HERO. HE DESERVES THIS MEDAL AND MANY MORE. AUNDRIA
