Bob and my father, George, became dinner buddies while Bob lived at Clarendale. My husband Steve and I enjoyed many meals with them, hearing some stories of their younger years in East Chicago. In honor of Bob, we’ll have ketchup on everything today. We’re glad to have met him. Rest In Peace, God bless.
