    A few months ago I got to hang out with Rob and Taro for a few days. So sad to hear this.

    I always looked forward to seeing Taro when Rob would stop in to fix my games. I would have a water bowel full of water waiting for Taro in the shop where Rob worked on the pins. Sorry for your loss Rob.

    Thanks everyone. It's been a rough couple of weeks. Life's just not the same without my boy.

    Taro was an amazing dog, more so than most folks know. In his service role he greatly helped me to get through my daily routine, and was an asset to my life in ways that most people did not see. I would like his memory to live on and bring positive energy and smiles to the world.

    Today I'm starting a fund in Taro's name that will donate to organizations that provide service dogs to those who have a need, but not the means to get one. The cost for training a service dog can range from $17,000 to $70,000 or more for food, care, veterinary services, and training. Many people that have need for a service dog do not have the financial ability to pay these costs.

    The Taro Legacy Fund will donate all collected funds to organizations such as The Animal Farm Foundation, and Freedom Service Dogs of America, that provide pre-trained service dogs or offer training services to people that need it.

    Anyone wanting to donate can send a PayPal payment to TarosLegacy@gmail.com

    I will also have flyers and samples from Taro's Pinball Magazine #4 April Fools cover available at shows that I'll be attending. Any donation to the fund will get your choice of any of these items.

    Please continue to keep Taro's memory alive and donate to Taro's Legacy Fund.

    Rob, so very sorry for your loss. I can only echo what everyone else has said. My wife and I always looked forward to seeing him at PATZ when you were there.
