The first Podcast I listened to was the one where Bawb brought the cooler full of empty Dole Whips to the podcast. I couldn't stop laughing. The more agitated Pete got, the harder I laughed.

DH and I met Bawb - and saw his kaht - at the first meet at the Dolphin. I was shy, so we didn't talk for long. I regret that, but I'm happy we got to meet him.

DH was on the DIS the evening of Bob's passing. I still remember my initial reaction when he shared the news with me. It was complete denial - couldn't be, Bob had food poisoning, that's all.

Bawb is still with so many of us in so many ways, and always will be. I think I'll have to order a mojeeto when I'm at Disney in June - and definitely a Dole Whip.

The world lost a beautiful human being when Bob passed. His sense of humor and love of his friends is something I will never forget. I'm glad you keep his memory alive, he certainly earned it.

Just got a chance to listen to the Bawb segment and it brought a tear to my eye. Never had a chance to meet him in person but really enjoyed his part in the podcasts.

Enjoyed the "Remember Bob" show! Brought back lots of memories.

Hi, Brian! I joined the Team a year after Bob passed. It was so odd to me the first time Pete called me a female version of your dad. Funny thing was, Pete said something that I had always wondered about- that Bob and I would have been the best of friends, had we ever met in person. I could easily see myself checking in with him and your mom every week to make sure they were okay.

I'll always think of him as the friend I'll get to know eventually!
