A sad time indeed. I am new to the Podcast crew and boards however in that short time I have come to enjoy the interactions of the team with Bob. He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers to the family, podcast team and those on the board who may have never met him but will miss him just the same.

Prayers to Bob's family and all of the Podcast team.

I loved listening to Bob. I always knew he would say something to brighten my day.

I can't even believe it. My wife called me at work to break the news before I saw it on the boards. I too am one who never met Bob face to face but am driven to tears thinking about what he meant to everyone and this community. I didn't seize the opportunity to meet Bob last August in Epcot when I had the chance. I now deeply regret that. I would have loved to just let him know how much we appreciated his love for Disney and everything he did for this community and the podcast. My thoughts and prayers go to the Varley family and the Dis family as well.

I raise a Mojeeto to Bob's passion, his spirit and his legacy.

Cheers Mr. Varley.

Hollywood, 1939. Amidst the glitz and glitter...the Hollywood Tower Hotel was a star in its own right.

Wow. I am so saddened by the loss. I, like many people, were looking forward to searching him out on our next trip. My thoughts are with the Varley family and the Podcast Crew as they deal with this tremendous loss. I am sitting in my cube at work trying hard not to cry. I, again like many people, feel like I lost a friend. He has left a legacy, though. Thank you, Bob Varley, for your dedication to the wonder and magic of Disney.

I couldn't be in more shock or sadness... How could this be? Life is so tenuous. Like other have said, I'm sitting here, my hands are shaking, my head is spinning, I keep thinking. How? Why? I am so very sorry for the enormous loss to the Varley family and the Pod Cast crew.

How could he be on the podcast I listened to yesterday and gone today?

We love you Bob. We'll miss you always!

It has been truly a blessing and a pleasure to get to know Bob through this site. His warmth and humor will resinate forever through the many podcasts and emails that I have enjoyed over this past year and a half. Please know that his enduring spirit will live on forever in our hearts and memories. As tears stream down my face, I can only imagine the sadness that the family and pod team are going through now. I hope through the tears that you are shedding that you can know that he was loved world wide for his passion, humor, and generosity of spirit that we as a community recieved on a regular basis. My prayers are with you all during this difficult time.

Much love,

I am just now reading the news of our beloved Bob's passing. I am in shock. It's time to get my kids off to school and I'm just sitting here feeling a bit numb. I haven't had time to read all the responses...but I'm guessing this has hit everyone like a ton of bricks.

My deepest sympathy to Diana and Brian, as well as the entire DIS Unplugged Family. "Bawb" is irreplaceable and I hope once the emotions have leveled out a bit (and I'm sure it will take awhile), there will be a tribute podcast that includes all of our favorite "Bawbisms"...he may be gone, but he will never be forgotten.
