Below is BOBBY KENNEDY'S SIGNATURE on Loree Warren (Foreman's) notebook paper that she took with her to the Siloam Airport that day (February 19, 1968). Many of us had skipped school and were concerned about getting disciplined after sneaking back. Loree found the signature May 23, 2015. This is an incredible archive!
