I've never posted on this board before, but I've watched the Dis tribute and it's bought tears to my ears. After reading the many posts over these past few days from those that knew him, I'm sorry I never had the privilege of meeting him myself. My condolences to all on this board on the loss of this wonderful man.

When I first opened the DIS, I thought, "What the heck is being downloaded!!" And then I saw Bawb. What a beautiful tribute.

Podcast crew, I have been thinking of y'all since I woke up this morning. :hug:

I even tried in explorer (thought maybe it was a mozilla thing.)

anyone else have that problem?

Through my tears Bawb made me laugh with his little dance.:cool1:


My deepest sympathy to all his family,friends and to all those whose lives he touched. I know he touched me and my DS Erich with his sense of humor and imagination.

Rest in Peace.

Yes! Me, darn it!!!!

Edit: I take it back . . . just got it to work. It was beautiful.

Ok, here's what I did...I right clicked the blank screen and clicked on the about macromedia link, then it went to the macromedia page, which told me I had the plug in and it was up to date (nothing new to download)

Then, when I went back, it worked.

I don't know if something was fixed while I clicked the other link, or if something corrected itself, but either way, it worked...

And it is just beautiful...I hope to be remembered as well some day! (hopefully not too soon...) They did a great job! :flower3: :sad1:

I unfortunately do not listen to the pod casts so I did not know Bob. I found out today when I signed on that he had recently passed away. That was a very touching memorial for him and it made me cry. My prayers and thoughts are with his family and friends and for anyone who was touched by him in their lives in any way.

:sad1: Beautiful and touching, but he still makes me laugh everytime I see his little dance. I never met him, but after listening to him, and seeing those pictures previously, I felt like I knew him very well. Hes just the familiar face you love to see.

Just watched it, and I thought it was beautiful, and captured what seemed to me (having never met him, unfortunately), from listening to the podcasts, Bawb's essence.

Thank you for that. :grouphug:

And I think (think) the singer might be Kristen Chenoweth.

DH & I lit our candles at 3 p.m. for Bawb, then I cried my eyes out while viewing the memorial...just a sad, sad day...:sad1:



Anyone know what that song is? It is beautiful....

Thanks!

The song is "For Good" from the musical Wicked. The perfect, beautiful song, I agree...

I have never posted on this before and I just want to say how sorry I am. I don't know why I went to podcast the day it was announced, It was the first time I ever clicked on it and then there it was the announcement. Even though I didn't know him or listen to the podcast, I was so very sad. I went back and listen to the podcast and read post just so I could know something of him.
The memorial is beautiful tribute. Everyone is in my prayers.:sad1:

For the people who have said they never listened to the podcasts and even for those who have, it's great to listen to the 10th Anniversary Show from 6/12/07. Bob talks about his love of Disney and how his dreams came true when he moved to Orlando and became part of the DIS and the podcasts. As sad as I am today, I love hearing Bob talk about living his dream. How many of us can say that? :hug:

Here is a link to all the podcast shows, the Anniversary show is near
the top of the right hand side.

I'm not good at crying. I don't do it often. When I do, I can't stop. And, as horribly sad I am that Bob has died, I couldn't cry until I watched the video. And, now I'm sure I will be crying the rest of the day.

But, it got me to thinking. Bob has left a beautiful and wonderful gift behind. In my life, I have lost very few people, mostly just grandparents when I was a kid. I don't remember what they sound like. I never knew them as an adult, and therefore didnt' really know them. Anytime we want we can hear Bob's voice. We can see his laughter and just what a wonderful person he truly was. While I can't even imagine the podcast without him, what a beautiful thing he has left to all of his family.

I'm a huge pod cast fan, after listening to it and work I run home and tell my roomies all about the happening of the pod cast crew. I'm so sorry for all of your loss. Big hugs to you all. Bawb was a wonderful person and he'll be sorely missed even by those who never met him. It's beautiful if you think about how many lives he has touched and he propbably didn't even know...
the tribute was well done. Thank you.

When I first opened the DIS, I thought, "What the heck is being downloaded!!" And then I saw Bawb. What a beautiful tribute.

Podcast crew, I have been thinking of y'all since I woke up this morning. :hug:


Same here, I even asked my DS what it was and he thought it was an add or a virus. So, I logged out of the Dis and looked for a way to get rid of whatever it was.

Couldn't seem to find anything and so logged back on, just went about my normal stuff and left that black box alone. A minute or so later I hear this beautiful music and went to take a look.

Oh my goodness. I've never been over on this board, but have heard about Bob and that tribute is absolutely amazing. So touching, it really makes you feel like:sad: .

Wonderful job guys and even though I never knew Bob, anyone who did I'm sure would be ever so proud.

:hug: to all that knew him both personally and through the DIS.

It's a beautiful and lovely tribute. I especially loved the video of him piloting the boat. I kept thinking of Bawb advice about fireworks cruises - go to the bathroom first! My wife came downstairs and found me crying and laughing. She just nodded and said, "Bawb."

We're hoping to see Wicked this fall when it comes to Pittsburgh. We'll be thinking of Bawb when this song is performed.

I just want to chime in with everyone else and say how wonderful the tribute is. The minute it started downloading I knew what it would be and started to brace myself for the flood of emotions...but you know what, I made it through without crying (by some miracle!) and truly enjoyed Bob -- just being Bob. :goodvibes

Fantastic job. It's been a long time since I cried that hard. Thank you for making it. It definitely allows us to feel a part of the memorial time this weekend. I'm so sad for the world to have lost such an amazing man. We love you Bob.
