    Our sympathy to Tara and her family. Bob has known family since the late 1930s (started St. Francis and graduated from CB with Chick) and has good memories of Pat. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. We last saw him at a benefit car wash he was helping run for one of Tara’s sports teams.
