Middle of the week, time for The PODCAST!

Woo Hoo....

Then I saw the news about Bawb and it took my breath away.

Still shocked.

After scanning through 33 pages on this thread its very apparent that Bawb, as well as the rest of the Podcast team, have touched a large number of people.

Hopefully in this horrible time for Bawb and the Podcast family there is some joy in knowing how many people they have touched. To have this many people, most of whom have never met in person only through the DISBoard, suffering the loss of Bawb, has to show the positive impact Bawb had in life.

I would like to know what Bawb and Walt are talking about at the moment. What does Walk think of the Kart Kam?

I won't say RIP since I'm sure St. Peter gave Bawb permanent Fastpasses and at the moment Bawb is off on a ride somewhere... Gooo Bawb!

You will be missed but not forgotten.

70's to 1997 too many trips to count.

Disney is a lens that focuses on people.
Sometimes it exposes the worst.
Most of the time it highlights the best.

I know its hard not to mourn over the loss of our dear friend. But Im sure he would not want any of us to cry or be saddened of him leaving earth and entering heaven. He's with our heavenly father now. Instead of being sad, let us be happy and remember the good times. Let us celebrate his life! After all, he is with the dream maker himself, Walt Disney!

Thoughts and Prayers for Bawb

Tammy-Lynn and I are both so sad to hear of your loss. It is a great loss for all of us. Bawb's magical wit will be sorely missed. We will be thinking of all of you at this difficult time.

It's of course always sad when someone passes, but when we as an entire community of Disney fans lose a fellow member, it's even harder. Although I did not know him personally, I can see from the outpouring of support both here and elsewhere online that he was a friend to many, and enjoyed by even more.

I know that podcasts allow both hosts and listeners to connect in a very personal way, and I'm sure that many of you felt Bob was a friend, even though you may never have met him in person. The entire Disney podcast community feels a loss today as well.

Again, my heartfelt condolences to all of you who suffered a loss from his passing.
Thank you Lou we appreciate your coming to visit and extend your condolences

I came back to this thread to read what others have written since I posted and to just try and make sense of something that doesn't. I was thinking last night about how now Bob will be able to meet Walt Disney. How wonderful would that be?

My thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.

I am in shock as are so many others. I was not able to get to a computer yeaterday and I could not belive it when I went to the Podcast main page. I was going to the you tube link because my son loves to watch the send Bob to the parks segment at mgm. I am in tears at this tragic news. I never met Bob in person but I feel as if I know him and I looked for him in the parks during our last trip. My heart goes out to Diana and Brian, I had a similar expereince with the circumstances around my fathers death and I know how traumatized she is right now. My thoughts and prayers are with you Pete, John, Julie, Corey, Kevin, Regina, and the entire Dis family.

Bob will be missed by many, many that have not had the pleasure of meeting him in person. I also have only come to know him via the podcast, boards, and kart cam videos. He has touched us all. I miss him.

My prayers are with his family and friends during this this difficult time.

My thoughts are with my extended family

Dear Team -

I was looking forward to the podcast like normal, I got to work today and jumped to the site to listen.

I am now setting at my desk remembering all the laughter Bob brought to my day and how he lightened my boring day of paper pushing. I even smile at how his cartcam videos made me want to hurl like spinning a tea cup just a little to much.

My thoughts are with you all during this time. Bob will be missed by many but I am sure St. Peter will not require a finger scan. After all it's Bob.

We look forward to the podcast teams return but I am sure I speak for all the listeners, we will all be here when you return, please take time to reflect and remember...we all will.

Bob you are missed.

Bob has been my friend for many many years. I have known Bob long before he got involved with the DIS and Dreams. We were golfing buddies. We used to play with another friend almost every Wed. We missed Bob when he moved down to Florida, but still kept in touch. The first year Bob and his family settled into their new home, he invited us to stay with them for a few days in January. We have now been doing this for the past 8 January's. My friend Mike and I brought our golf clubs and all we did was play golf, laugh, and eat at great restaurants Bob had found. Bob loved to eat good food and he loved to play golf. No one in our little group is very good. Actually on occasion we have been known to embellish our scores. OK we cheat a little, or as we like to call it, we play "Varley Golf"

One of the funniest memories I have of Bob was one of the first times I ever played golf with him. This is when Mike and I were first introduced to "Varley Golf".

Bob teed up his ball and then proceeded to hit a less than desirable shot. I then started to tee my ball up so I could hit my shot. Bob "said wait I'm not done yet." He then took another golf ball out of his pocket, teed it up and hit another less than desirable shot. Then he hit another, and another, and yet another. I think he hit six or seven in all, I lost count. He kept hitting until he was satisfied. When we all finally got to the green and finished the hole. I was keeping score, so I asked Bob what he got for a score, so I could mark it down. He turned to me and said,"I got a par". "Varley Golf" was born!!

I'm going to miss our golf adventures. I'm going to miss his wit and his sense of humor. I miss my friend. Rest in Peace Bobby.

Bob

There is no doubt that God has welcomed Bob into heaven with open arms. There's also no doubt that he's telling Bob right now, it's heaven Bob, not heavern. We mourn the loss of a great friend to all of us, even though most of us had never met him. We will miss him terribly, and our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends, the ones who knew him best. Pete, if you can, please post a charitable organization that Diane would like contributions made to, in Bob's memory. Thanks.

Our hearts and prayers go out to the family and everyone who loved him.

Thank you for sharing your memories of Bawb with us. Those of us who listen regularly to the podcast know what "Varley Golf" is and have heard of the great times he has had playing with his friends. I hope you pass along to the rest of Bawb's friends and family how much we will all miss him too.
