Hi Tammy, I don't know you, but your post here has been on my mind since you sent it and I just wanted to say I'm so sorry about your tragic loss---I just, can not imagine, but I was also deeply touched by your compassion for Bawb's family.

HUGS!

Missing Bob

Our prayers go out to Bob's family & friends. We truly felt that we knew Bob like a personal friend. His memory will live forever and I will never forget the challenge Bob would have in pronouncing words that were new to him! I smile & cry at the same time.

He touched so many people and we were looking forward to spending time with him on the cruise.

God Bless you all.

I never met him but I heard his voice for months and enjoyed his writting. It will be strange to hear a podcast without his input and outlook... my prayers go to his family and close friends.. Be at peace

A real loss to us all

In a world filled with ever more cynicism and hate, Bob's thoughts and words and delightful inability to pronounce certain words contained so much joy and cheer which was sent out to many each week.

I feel like I've lost a friend I never got to know. I drive a lot each week and the podcast is a highlight of the week, making it go that little bit faster and it just won't be the same again.

Let's not mourn Bob's passing for too long, but celebrate Bob's memory all the sooner by doing whatever we can to bring some joy to others.

My thoughts, prayers and love are with Bob's family and friends

And to Bob - thank you for everything, you leave a big kaht shaped hole in the world!

I am very saddened

Pete & Podcast Team...

I was shocked to hear this sad news. Although I am only a listener, I have grown to love Bob and how you all picked on him in good fun and how he took it all in stride. It is a sad day indeed. I was surpprised to hear that he was the same age age me and I think it makes us all think to enjoy life as Bob seemed to do. He was fortunate to have such great friends as you guys. My prayers are with you all and to his family. I will miss him and his KartKam.

I am shocked and saddened to hear this news. I had just packed my dis unplugged t-shirt in my case in preperation for my trip over from Scotland next week. I thought of the chance of meeting Bawb while wearing it and went to check why this weeks podcast had not come through on itunes. Please past my sincere condolances to the family of a friend I never got to meet

I haven't been on the boards for a week or so & am just seeing this news. I'm shocked & saddened.

My thoughts & prayers are with Bob's family--both the Varleys & the podcast.

A great loss to all of us.....

I want to add my heartfelt prayers and condolences to Diana and family and the entire Podcast team. I'm new to the boards, but have been listening to the podcast since last July. I have to agree with what everyone is saying - though I never had the pleasure of meeting Bob, I considered him my friend and looked forward to our weekly visits. While I know he'll now be streaming from another location and still listening to the laughter, I certainly will miss all that he brought to the show and the site each week. Bob will always be an example to me of the effect one life can have on many. He chose to follow his dream and in doing so (like Walt) changed many others for the better.

I was wondering where the podcast was this week. Now I know.

I, like most on the boards, didn't know Bob personally, but because of the podcast I saw a glimpse of man who loved life, loved his family and loved his friends. And from the sheer amount of responses, it is obvious Bob was loved back. To his family, friends and the DIS family, my thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of loss.

I have no words. Words aren't enough. My heart goes out to the Varley family and to the DIS/DU family.

I am stunned and deeply saddened. Though I am simply a listener and admirer of the podcast, I feel like a friend has been lost. What a horrible piece of news and a terrible tragedy. I feel like offering my support to you, his close friends, but I find I am in need of some myself.

I will miss hearing Bob so much.

I came here to get my weekly dose of laughter and fun with the gang, and now I feel like I've been punched in the stomach. What a sad, sad time for everyone. Add me to the list of those who never met Bob, but always enjoyed listening to him and reading his posts. My prayers and thoughts are with all of Bob's friends and family.
