My thoughts are with all of you at this time.

Diana, Brian, the Varley Family and the DIS Crew,

My thoughts and prayers are with you. I didn't have the pleasure of meeting Bob in person, but I feel as if I know him through the podcast, the videos, and the boards. He is a great man, and will be sorely missed by all.

To me, he was the unofficial WDW greeter and the spirit of the Parks. He shared his love of Disney, his family and friends, and the space program with us - what a gift, what a legacy!

Thank you, Bob, for sharing!

I am so sorry to hear of Bob's passing. Although I never knew him personally, he seemed to have a very genuine and friendly spirit that came through on all of the podcasts. My prayers go out to his family and friends. RIP.

Oh, I have no words. It is funny how you feel like you know someone from just listening to them on a PodCast. I have always thought he seemed like such a good person. What a loss!

My thoughts go out to all of you and especially Diana and Brain and the rest of Bob's family. The world has lost a shining star.

Sadly, I have had a bit of loss in my life lately and I am always comforted by this...

"And He will raise you up on Eagle's Wings, bear you on the breath of dawn,
Make you to shine like the sun, and hold you in the palm of His hand."

"Friends are the pillars on your porch. Sometimes they hold you up, sometimes they lean on you, and sometimes it's just enough to know that they are standing by."

My sympathies to Bob's family and all his very close friends at the DIS.

I never had the pleasure to meet Bob but we have lost a very special Disney friend.

I honestly can't believe it, it seems silly to be crying over someone you've never met, but Bob was such a big part of the podcast and Dis and therefore such a big part of me. He struck me as one of those people who really understood the Disney spirit, which is such a big part of everyone on these boards. The podcast will never be the same.

I wish to send my condolences to all Bob’s friends, family and anyone lucky enough to know him. It really is a sad day.

I am stunned beyond words. Bob and Diana came to our wedding three years ago, even though it was very awkward timing for them, and were just delightful people to be around. The loss is just too hard for me to contemplate, so I can't imagine how Diana must feel, but my heart goes out to her and the rest of the family.
