My heartfelt condolences are with you all in the Brosh family. I have such fond memories of my Dad (Paul Bischof) & your Dad going together to the adult recreational basketball tournaments held at St Vincent’s gym. They also shared involvement in church activities.
I think their friendship began in high school.
Blessings to you all🙏🏼
