We love you Bawb

I was catching up from where I left off from the email show yesterday and just now looked at the boards. I'm still here at work and can't control myself. I'm lost for words and can't stop but praying for Diana Brian and the Podcast crew.

Love and support,


We love you Bawb!! You've touched all of our lives here on the boards and you will always be in our hearts.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all especially Bobs family. I can't seem to pull myself together and I have never met Bob personally but I do hope he knows how much joy he brought to so many people. Feels like family...

I guess I'm still in shock....like waiting for a punchline that doesn't come. Ugh. Very saddned by this news, and send my thoughts and prayers to Bob's family and all of you on the Podcast team...

I had sent an e-mail specifically for Bob today prior to jumping on the boards. I'd just recently been able to listen to last weeks e-mail show and was thinking of him for some reason. Very sad

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

I had hoped to meet you one day, Bob. I had hoped that Merrick would meet you as well to hear your voice in person. Again, like tons of others here, I never "met" you, but I feel the loss of a friend. Bob, until we meet, and I suppose we will one day.

May peace and comfort surround the Varley family and the Dis family who are feeling the loss of Bob the most.

I am completely shocked and saddened by this news. Bawb was a very special person and will be sadly missed by his family and friends I am sure. My prayers are with all those close to him at this terrible time. His love of Disney was so genuine and he added so much happiness to the podcast. He will be missed by all of us!

So sorry

Will keep Bob's family in our prayers. He was like a distant friend even though we never met. When you listen to some one for so long you feel you get to know them. He will be missed.

So sorry to hear the news about Bob. He was such a great contributor to the Podcast, and seemed to be an all around nice guy. I could tell the podcast crew must have felt very comfortable with him (and him with them) through all of the light-hearted taunting and joking!

My thoughts are with his surviving family and circle of friends.

I am so sorry to hear of Bawb's passing. I never met him, but from his stories on the podcast and the photos of him, he seemed to always be having a wonderful time doing what he loved with people he loved. I enjoyed listening to him so much. My heart goes out to all who have lost a dear family member and friend. I hope that this huge outpouring of love and grief on the boards will somehow help those he left behind to carry on.

My heart goes out to Bobs family and the whole of the podcast and disboards crew. Bob gave so much and brightened up our days with his "Bawbisms".

He will be greatly missed.
