I am so sorry to read this. There just aren't words to express the sorrow, of losing a daddy. Mrs. Tarr, my heart is with you, and all of the family. Mr. Tarr will always be a lovely memory of my childhood. A dear, dear man, that was always smiling, and always kind to this neighborhood kid. As a testament to him, -- I don't think that we remember all the adults, when we are growing up, but I can still see Mr. Tarr smiling -- see the kindness in his face. He surely left a mark of love on the people that knew him.

My cousin Bob was always ready to tease. My most fun memory from way back was that he always called me Jan ICE instead of Janice. Bob & Priscilla let me live with them for a time till I got a job in Pittsburgh & could get my own place. I sure enjoyed that time, them & all 4 girls. It’s very hard to loose a family member. You are going to be missed very much cousin!

Always enjoyed being with your parents even though it wasn’t nearly enough time. Living in Ohio I missed a lot of gatherings but hold dear to my hear the times we did share. Wasn’t too long ago Don and I were looking at the mock 50th Anniversary we had for them and the Simko’s, what a crazy, fun loving family we belong to. Bob added so much to the Haluska dynamics and brought 4 darling daughters up to be wonderful woman. At this difficult time I pray God will give each of you His loving comfort.

I'm so sorry to hear this, Kathie. I met your daddy at a Thanksgiving dinner at your house. He was intelligent and very kind to us. Prayers for you and your family.
