My prayers are with Bob's family. Each week hearing Bob was a highlight for me and my son. Our family had lived in MA for awhile so hearing Bob with his dialect and the banter from you guys regarding his language briught us right back to so many wonderful memories. Bob's perspective and love for Disney world will be sadly missed in our home.
With comfort,
The Steinbacher Family

I was looking forward to some day coming back to Florida just so I could go out and have a round of Bob Golf. Although we never met I felt that I had a kindred spirit in Bob and will miss his voice on the Podcasts. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family there and his family here. Bob you will be sorely missed, God bless.

I thought it was a joke.. I looked at the calendar and thought it was an April Fools joke, then I saw that Kevin posted and I knew it wasn't.

The world will be less magical without dear Bob.. Prayers and Blessings to his family and friends.

Kevin - when you can, please let us know Bob's favorite Disney Charity. I would like to start a rememberence drive in his honor.

My heart is breaking.

My condolences to all Bob's friends and family, and hugs to everyone.

Bob was the sweetest, friendliest man. I was so looking forward to seeing him again.

The world has been diminished by his leaving.

Like many here, I'm at a loss for words. I'm sitting here at my computer looking at the Dis as I get ready for work today and I saw Pete's head line and clicked on it, but I NEVER thought I would be reading this.

I'm so so so sad and confused. Life is just so short and precious! all we really have is today!

Bawb may your soul fly to heaven on the wings of your guardian angels

How do wew recover from this incredible loss?

Wow I am numb and speechless.

Bob and I had a wonderful conversation at the pod meet and I love him with all my heart. I felt like we connected and I could not wait to see him again.

My 2DS love Bob and talk about him like he is one of thier friends.

I am just......

My love thoughts and prayers go out to the team and Bobs family.

ohhhhhhhh how terrible...............I can't stop crying even though I never met Bob in person I feel like I lost a good friend....I loved listening to him on the podcast every week.......what a shame.....it sounds as though he went peacefully during one of his cherished naps at least.....My Dad died nine years ago at the young age of 61 the same way.....and it did make us feel good that at least in was on his terms and the way he would have wanted to go.......My thoughts are with his much loved Wife - Diana and son Brian and grandsons he talked about so often.....Bob you will be so missed by so many....even my 11 year old is so upset right now.......we will miss you terribly...............God bless.......I know you are all so connected and loved by each other....you must all be feel such a loss......Stay strong.....thanks for letting us know Pete....

I am another that is just in shock and extremely saddened by this news. You could not have met a nicer, more genuine person than Bob. I only spoke with him briefly at the Podcast meet in Dec, but I feel like I really knew him through the podcasts. Wow, what a huge black hole there's going to be in the podcasts without him. I know he will be greatly missed by the listeners. I can't even imagine how much more he'll be missed by the rest of the team.

To Diana, Brian, and the rest of the Varely family - I am so very, very sorry for your loss.
