Bart was there, connected to me and mine, no matter.  After a horrible flood that left our farm 2 miles from the nearest county road in northern idaho, no vehicle had arrived at our door  until a yellow cab pulled up and all 6ft 8 inches unfolded out the back seat. What a wonderful sheepish grin appeared knowing this visit was his most unexpected.

A few years later, in Clark Fork Idaho (population 147) the July 4th parade which had the town fire truck, a few kids on bikes with streamers, a couple of hot rods, and the entire population along the road in front of the general store, and all eyes were on Bart holding hands with my 2 yr old son. So big, so gentle a touch.

When Dad opened a pharmacy on Cheltenham Ave we shortly moved out of Philly into the Township. Bart was the first kid I saw when I walked into Mrs Mosher's 3rd grade class at Cheltenham Elem. Thought I had moved into a land of giants. We all remember Bart at 6'11" in HS but he was already 5' 8" in Jan of his 3rd grade year. He was a gentle giant. ----- George Trapp
