He was always ready with that cordial smile. Bobby and I went through Hamilton High together and graduated in the class of 1951, or as I like to refer to it, "the class with class." Bob and I also attended St. Anthony Parish in Trenton and were regular summer visitors to the San Alfonso retreat house in West Long Branch. Bob and his lovely wife, Emily were always there for me when I was President of the St. Anthony Grammar School PTA. I remember Bob being a part of one of our PTA "Fathers' Night" fund raising programs, where Bob was in the "MIchael Rowed the Boat Ashore" segment of the program. We met at our HHS reunions, and Bob was always there with his wife and that disarming cordial personality. I will miss you, Bob. You and Emily, Danny and Anne, whom I see frequently, and all the Herrera family will be in our prayers. May the Good Lord welcome you into his heavenly Kingdom.
