To the Kharouf Family. When I didn't hear back from Bob, I did a search and sadly learned of his passing; my wonderful friend of 59 years. Bob and I grew up on the same block on 79th street Brooklyn; we were avid NY Yankee fans and we spent many hours on the subway for NY Yankee Games or we could always be found playing ball in the street or at the park. He was so proud of the life you all gave him and I so proud of him for his dedication to all of you. I am deeply touched and saddened. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
