I'm so shocked to hear this. I'm also shaking. Have never met Bob but it feels like I have lost a close friend. My thoughts are with you all as well as with Diana and the rest of Bobs family.

Although I did not know Bob personally, he will be missed terribly. I can't believe that this wonderful funny man who brought joy and laughter to thousands of people, and was taken away so early and suddenly. My prayers and thoughts go out to his family and loved ones.

I will also be keeping Bob, his family, and friends in my thoughts and prayers. I am relatively new to the DIS, and tonight just ran across my first Bob video from Star Wars weekends on youtube. His funny attitude and helpful information will be sorely missed! My heart goes out to his family as well as all who have been touched by Bob. He will be missed.

I had to read all the posts before I could even begin to put my thoughts into words. I am numb. I cannot even believe I could feel this heartsick over losing someone I have never "met" After 400 plus posts I can say this man made more of an impact than he could have possibly known. I couldn't help but laughing out loud at him. I couldn't help but feel defensive for him when everyone was teasing him!

I just feel sick. I have come to love you guys at the DIS. Pete, Corey, julie, John and Kevin As well as Regina and Will. As well as the faithful DISers on the boards. but Bob..... well he was in a league of his own. I hung on his every word.

Diana, you may not ever read this, but if you do, please know how truely sorry I am. your husband was part of our family on a weekly basis! I looked forward to his voice or his blog more than I care to admit.

A few others described it like losing an uncle. Yes, that about says it.... that favorite Uncle who always has time to talk to you at whatever level you need him.....heartsick is all I can feel. You are all in my prayers. I hope you are feeling Gods comfort at this very difficult time!

Another lurker looking for the podcast... saw this sad news instead.

I'm so very sad and sorry to hear about the loss of Bob Varley.

He brought a smile to my face every time he spoke. We Massachusetts folk have a kinship!

My deepest condolences to his family and to the PodCast Crew and everyone else who was touched by this man.

He will be missed.

It is hard to put into words the sadness with the passing of a friend. Bob was a friend that you all on the PodCast crew shared with us...... And for that I am very grateful!!! I know that I will toast Bawb with a Dole Whip the next trip to the Magic Kingdom, with a tear in my eye.

My sympathies and prayers are with Bob's family and the PodCast Crew.

This is very sad news. My wife and I met Bob in December at the podcast meet. We are so happy that we had the chance to meet him even though we felt we knew him from the podcasts. He was as nice in person as he came across in the podcast. I cannot imagine the podcasts without him and his beloved KartKam.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Diana and Brian in this difficult time and also to the podcast team. It was so apparent to us from our meeting them all that this is a family loss for all of them.

Bob, you will be greatly missed.

My thoughts and condolences are with all of Bob's family and friends. After listening to the podcast for so long I feel as if I've lost a good friend. He will be missed by so many that he made laugh, even though we never met face to face.

All my thoughts and prayers.

So very sorry to hear!

I have only this week discovered the podcast and have been listening to past shows with pleasure. Bob is a joy to hear, and I know his friendship enriched your lives.

Bob brought joy to us all by sharing his love for Disney, and the world is sadder for his passing. To his friends and family, I wish you peace and offer prayers for your comfort.

Thank you Bob, and God bless

Deepest sympathy

Our deepest sympathy goes out to Bob's family, and really everyone involved with the DIS. He has so quickly (and sneakily) become a part of all of our lives, and I'm glad to have had that. We obviously never met him, but we're sure that he was a fantastic man and a great friend... despite all the pauses and mispronunciations.

We'll miss you Bob. Truly.

-Christian and Ryan
