“I know Norman Vincent Peal was on Robert Schuller’s program a number of years. He and Schuller were good friends. Same kind of theology. Schuller was very wishy-washy. My brother Tad was very much involved with them. He used to drive a truck out and then take cookies up to Chino Prison [California Institute for Men, Chino, Calif.]. But he said he saw him one day and he was . . . never again.”Bob telling Polly (Bob’s wife), Virginia (Lee’s daughter), Lee, and Ken (Lee’s second husband) about Tad, during a visit to California in January 2004

- Gloria, Trey, Steve/Dad, can you tell us more about Tad’s days driving for Schuller?
- How long did this work last? What were the years?

- Did he meet with the prisoners or did other people do that part of the ministry?
- Uncle Bob intimates that something or some disillusionment happened. Can you tell more about that turning point?
- I need a photo of Tad with his truck. Anybody got one to share?
