My heart is so heavy after hearing the news about Bob. My DIS friend, fav's=mets&mickey, called to tell me to cushion the shock of reading the bad news on the boards.

My best memory from our last trip to WDW was meeting Bob at the Epcot 25th anniversary showing of Illuminations. I was so excited when I realized that the man next to me who was shielding his camera with a mini umbrella was Bob. I was so tickled to see Bob in action with one of his beloved props. He kindly allowed me to take the picture posted below.

Bob's enthusiasm and good nature enriched the pod casts. We will all miss him terribly!

My prayers are with all of you, and all of us, and especially Diana. I can't believe it. I just started listening in January, and already feel as if the Crew are my friends! Bawb was so funny. My heart breaks for all of his loved ones and his dear friends.

ahh... ummm... {BAWB pause} yeah...

I am just speechless. I have never met Bob but reall feel like I lost a friend. He was the brunt of much ribbing and I could equate with that position in a group of friends.

My thoughts and wishes go to all of Bob's family and friends, wether they met in person or not (like me!)

I, too, am sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. As an important part of the DIS Podcast team, Bob provided a unique point of view with a dynamic and pure honesty that will be sorely missed.

My sympathies to Bob's family, as well as to his expanded family at the DIS.

I'm also a forum lurker who "knows" Bob from the podcast. I'm not sure what the round table will be like without its foil. Bob played the straight man with tact and grace, and he will be missed. In time, the happiness brought to the countless number of lives he touched shines brighter than the sadness felt in his loss. We should all aspire to such greatness as that. I join others in raising a Dole Whip (or mojeeto if you prefer), to a good man. Wish I could have met you...

Another lurker checking in to say how much I have always enjoyed Bob's presence on the podcasts. So sorry to hear this bad news, my condolences to his friends and family.

Not having ever met Bob doesn't change the feeling of loss that I and I'm sure many others are feeling. Hearing him talk with the pod team each week we truely know "him" as he was. Pete, John, Kevin, Corey, Julie and all of the DIS-ers behind the scene were lucky to be part of his circle.

May God comfort and lead each of you through this difficult time. May he answer your Questions and prayers.

I only just heard the news a few minutes ago, when a DIS friend IRL called to tell me. I have just been reading everything with tears falling from my eyes. Like so many others, I never met Bob, but I feel as if I have lost a friend today. My heart goes out to his wife, children and grandchildren, as well as the Podcast Team and all who loved him.
