A very sad day -your thoughts and prayers are needed

I'm sorry to have to tell everyone, but Bob Varley passed away this afternoon.

We postponed todays show because Bob wasn't feeling well, he thought he had food poisoning. When his wife Diana came home from work, she found him in their bedroom and he had apparently been dead for a few hours.

That's all we know right now - all of us are heading over to their house to be whatever comfort we can to Diana and Brian. I'll update everyone as we find out more, but I ask that you all please keep Diana, Brian and the rest of Bob's family in your thoughts and prayers.

We've all lost a wonderful friend - a friend whose presence can never be replaced, and whose memory I will hold close to my heart for the rest of my life.

I am so sorry for Bob and his family. And for all of you that were his great friends.

This is such a shock.

My prayers go out to all whose lives were touched by Bob.

How sad.

My thoughts go to his family in this very sad time. He touched so many of us with his humor and love for all things Disney and DIS. My prayers and thoughts go to his family and to the Podcast crew, I know they have lost someone so special, as have we all.

I too never met Bawb, but I was looking forward to scouting for him on our upcoming trip to tell him how much we have enjoyed getting to know him via the Podcast and these boards. He was such a wonderful person and made me laugh so many times when by all accounts I should have been out for the duration.

We here are terribly saddened by this news and will make sure to keep all of you in our thoughts and prayers in the coming days.
