Taft, Jr., Mark and Karen–So sorry to hear of the loss of your father. Taft, Jr. and I used to pal around together in grade school through high school. I can and will always remember Mr. Bryan just shaking his head and smiling when he would hear or know of some of the things we used to do as kids (especially when we got older)! May he rest in peace.

So sorry to read of Taft’s passing. I grew up on 41st street and knew him as a neighbor. Then I had the privilege of working with him at Picoma. We had a lot of great laughs!
