Sympathy & kindest regards to Bob Ging's family & thundering herd of fine friends wherever they may be. I worked with Bob when he was a tipstaff for the late Judge Frederic Weir in the Allegheny County Courts. Bob was in law school at the time. It goes without saying that Judge Weir, as fine a gentleman as I've been privileged to know, made a very thoughtful choice when he hired Bob.
