Tara family says ‘thank you’
April 29, 2009
On Feb. 23, we lost a loving husband and father, Bob Tara. Losing Bob so suddenly was devastating to our family. Thank you to everyone in our community who has reached out to support and comfort us. The love and outpouring of affection has been so incredible and affirming.
This was never more evident than at Bob’s memorial service at Heavenly Mountain Resort. Our special thanks and love go to our Heavenly Ski Patrol family who started off the memorial with a moving torchlight ski down World Cup run in Bob’s honor. Bob was so proud of being a patroller at Heavenly for nearly 25 years. Heartfelt thanks go out to each of the 500 of you who attended and shared your love and memories with us. The Lake Tahoe Unified School District has also been there for us at every turn, and the entire town has been so supportive and gracious. Thank you again for your donations in Bob’s honor.
We want to recognize Karen Foster, Blaise Carrig and the whole Heavenly family for their support and guidance during this incredibly tough time. Karen was an immense support to our family through this trying time both emotionally and organizationally.
Special thanks go to the Baker Family: Susan, John, Mandy and Sara. Also Mark and Ronda Dobson, and Marla Handsack. We couldn’t have gotten through this without you. We would also like to thank Tahoe Gymnastics for all their care during this time.
To say that Bob will be missed just doesn’t do it justice. His passing leaves a huge hole in our hearts and lives. We struggle to find the right words to express our gratitude and thanks. So many of you have reached out to us just when we needed it most. We all wanted to say thank you all and God bless.
