On behalf of the Myer family, I would like to express a heartfelt thank you to the Westport Police Department.

In our time of sorrow, they demonstrated their continual support and gave Bobby a beautiful tribute to commemorate all of his years of service. Thank you to the servicemen and servicewomen who came to pay their respects at his wake and funeral, and who cried with us and shared beautiful memories as we grieved.

The amazing turnout was a testament to how much he was loved and respected in his community. The motorcade, the high-flying flag, the honor guard, along with so many deeds that did not go unnoticed, helped provide us with some comfort.

We, as a family, will forever be grateful and appreciative for the love and support his fellow officers, firefighters and emergency personnel have given us.

Holly Myer
