All of my thoughts and prayers go out to Bobs family and friends. This is such sad and unexpected news. I love listening to Bob on the podcast and he will be terribly missed.

Though I never knew him beyond this podcast, he brought joy and laughter to so many of my days, and to so many, many people. I'm so sorry to hear this news and send my condolences to everyone, especially Bob's family and podcast friends.

I am so sorry to hear this - very sad.
I think that we all feel as though we know the pod cast crew because we choose to spend two hours in your company each week.
My sincere condolances to Bobs family and friends. He will be sadly missed.

Thank you for this video, it's beautiful.

I keep coming back to read the updates and I just keep crying. I only met Bob once and for just a few minutes, but I am so sad for everyone whose lives he touched.

I hope the Podcast Team knows how much we care about them. We listen to you twice a week and learn about you and your families and it's impossible not to feel connected to you in some way. I wish I could be there to give you all a big hug.

God Bless Everyone.

It's been said so well. I've lost a friend whom I had never personally met. The power of the internet and podcast community is incredible. This is a testimony to one show connecting emotionally and personally with strangers from around the world. May the comfort of God be with the family.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Bawb's family.

Although I didn't know him personally, the podcast introduced me to a man that was kind and had a wonderful sense of humor.

Simply said, he made me laugh.

I haven't been around this forum in a while since I usually only hang out here while I'm in planning mode, but a friend on another forum told me about Bob's passing. I really enjoyed his podcasts. Such a loss for the DIS community.

R.I.P., Bob! Bob's family is in my thoughts and prayers.

I was shocked and saddened to hear the news. My heart and prayers to Bob's family. He will be sorely missed on the POdcasts. The first time I listened to the Podacst and heard that beautiful Massachusetts accent, I knew I was home! Being from NH, his accent always brought a smile to my face!

Bob you are loved and will be missed!

Although we didn't know him personally, we enjoyed listening to Bob and his wonderful personality every week on the Podcast. We'll miss him. Our thoughts are with Bob's family and his friends.

Bob always had a way of making a point and he has made another one this week. His point is that obviously you don't have to have met someone for them to have an impact on your life, to have brought laughter and joy to your life. You don't have to have met someone to be touched by their passing. As usual, his point is right on.

My family just returned last night from a 5 day stay at WDW, the entire time, every kaht that passed we checked to see if it was Bob. I woke up this morning & came straight to the Disboard and saw Pete's post. We never had the pleasure of meeting Bob in person but sure had felt his wonderful influence on the podcasts. We will miss him so much.

My thoughts, prayers and pixie dust for the Varley family and the Podcast crew. He was a very special man to many, many people.

Mommyofthreeboys, thanks for posting this quote, I had never seen it before but it sure is comforting.

Speak of me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference in your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without an effort, without a ghost of a shadow upon it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is absolute and unbroken continuity. What is this death but a negligible accident? Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just round the corner. All is well."
I look forward reminiscing with the Podcast crew and everyone here on the board. In the days to come"Bawbisms" will be a comfort, it is a way to honor Bob and keep him alive in our hearts.

RIP Bob.

Like many others I never had the opportunity to meet Bob, but only knew him through the podcasts, boards and blog. However, I felt that that was enough to know him very well.

I hope that Bob's family and friends can find some peace in knowing that Bob affected so many lives in such a positive way. That his simple love of Disney was able to enhance thousands of lives in such a deep way, and that through these boards and the archived podcasts, people will always have a way of remembering Bob and he will still be able to bring happiness and joy to others.

He will be missed.
