I only just read about this now. I am also very saddened by Bob's passing. I honestly don't think the podcast will ever be the same. Please know that there are innumerable people who will miss Bob, without ever having met him. Heartfelt condolences to the surviving family. Please know that your father/husband used to make me smile at least once a week. May he rest in peace.

I feel I have lost a family member. I'm sure Bawb is watching down on us and will be with us all everytime we visit the parks. Miss you may the magic be with you always. x

Thoughts and Prayers for Bawb's Family and Friends

As my first post to the boards but an avid podcast listener, I wanted y'all to know that he will be missed.

While listening to last weeks podcast, I had the thought about how great it was to have Bob on the team when he had sooo much knowledge to share with us.

He will be sorely missed and my thoughts are with his friends and family.

I can't believe it. I just can't express with words how sad I am over this lose, and I never met the man. Please have my condolences. He was a great man to listen too and I, like many people, will miss him greatly.

Oh my. How sad for us and how magnificent for Bob.

Last December, he was driving me around in a golf cart taking photos of lights, cautioning me to make sure "he didn't screw up" anything.....

Hearing the excitement in his voice on the phone during the WildeOscar Pete Stalk at Universal was priceless.

And he's just.... gone? Oh my.

I was very sad to hear the news of Bob's passing.....then i thought, i never even had the chance to meet Bob and i still feel like i have lost a great friend, and that is a wonderful testimate to his character. I like to think he is following Walt around asking him all kinds of "grammatically incorrect" questions (and i know Walt LOVES it)!!

my thoughts and prayers are w/ all of Bob's family and friends....take care.

I was so shocked, and still am, to hear about Bob passing away. The DIS, DISUnplugged, and Disney World will never be the same without him. My deepest sympathies go out to all his family and friends.

Oh, my. Having just returned home tonight after the sudden passing of my grandmother last Wednesday, I'm shocked, saddened, and numb to hear that one of my podcast friends has also passed on. My heart goes out to the family and close friends of Bob...having been on the end of a hard loss only a few days ago myself, I can empathize with how you're feeling - how I'm still feeling for my granny and how I know we will all feel for a long while to come. Although I only met Bob once, at the podcast meet in December, he felt like a friend to me (as all the pod squad do). In fact, DH was planning to ask Bob on Sunday at the live show if he'd like to get together sometime to go golfing...now DH and I will attend the Sunday memorial sad we will never have the chance to make that offer. My thoughts and prayers are with Bob's family and friends. I just don't know what else to say.

I'm a lurker more than a poster, but I have been a faithful listener for a year and a half. When I heard the news, I called my husband at work and cried to him. I am originally from the Boston area (now living in Orlando) and hearing Bawb's accent and speech patterns always reminded me soooooo much of my grandfather. I will very much miss hearing his voice on the podcasts.

Heartfelt condolences go out to the family and friends. RIP Bawb.

I posted a few days ago on another board, but I guess being that I love TheDisUnplugged, that I should have come here first.

I am very sad that we have lost a friend, even if most of us never had the pleasure of meeting him in person. My prayers are with his family and friends, real world and internet.
