I am mostly a lurker, but am an avid Podcast listener. I have been saddened by this news since I first read it last week. I wanted to give my condolences to the Podcast crew and to Bawb's family as well. I feel like many others here in that I "know" you all, because we see your personalities shine through week after week.

Hang in there. Many thoughts and prayers go out to everyone.

I just got back from a few days away in the country and logged on to see the "Bawb" icons on everyone's sigs, wondered what the heck and then read this thread. This is terrible news. I am so sorry. I've been a fan of the podcast for years and his sharp, dry and witty retorts really made me laugh. I'm sorry I never got to meet him but kinds feel I did every week in the podcast.

As theme park fans, maybe we should think of his life as the pre-show and now he's made it to the front of the line, he's all strapped in and ready to ride the main attraction....

I don't even know what to say. I just saw this post yesterday and couldn't believe what I was reading.

Bob will be missed by many that he has touched. Just by knowing him through the podcasts, I considered him a friend as I do all of you. My thoughts are with his family and friends. Celebrate his life!

I hope that he is walking with Walt and sharing great stories together.
See ya real soon!

After having some time for the reality to sink in, I wanted to talked to someone to help with the sadness. I told my husband that a dear friend from the Dis had passed unexpectanly. I didn't even realize what I had said until later. I had called him my friend. Even though I didn't have the good fortune to meet him, through the podcast I felt like a friend. At the end of every podcast, bob left a smile on my face and sometimes tears in my eyes (from laughing so hard)!

To Pete, Kevin, John, Julie and Corey....I also consider all of you my friends. I might never meet you face to face but please know this; my love, friendship and prayers go out to each and everyone of you. When time has healed your heart enough to return to doing the podcast, I will be right there listening, sheding a few tears for the empty seat and the quiet mic.

That is very sad news. Last year in planning my families 1st ever trip, I began listening to the podcasts and Bob & crew really gave us information that made our trip so much more special. I have continued to listen to the podcasts since, to make sure I keep in touch with the World!! Bob you will be missed by a family in Waco, Texas!!!

A sad day for all

I never met Bob but i feel like i knew him and laughed with him every week. Bob was a wonderful person and even changed my mind about New Englanders, my cowrokers were always wondering why I was laughing so hard at work and i had to stop and tell them about this crazy guy with a crazy accent named Bob. He will be missed and now he is in Disney forever.

With Love,
Danielle Groeger Dever, Co

Sending my love for Bob's family and friends, and the whole Disney online community. When the Unplugged crew can find the strength to return to their microphones, I'll be listening with an open heart.

It has been nice to hear the well wishes from hosts of other podcasts this week (ie; Inside the Magic, WDW Radio).

very sad

i found out today about Bob. i was listening to the end of Inside the Magic and Ricky started talking about a lady who sent in an e-mail about Bob. I gasped and put my hand over my mouth when Ricky read that Bob had passed away. i was shaking from the unexpected news. i have thought about Bob and the podcast crew off and on all day. i kept telling myself that i don't even know these people! but I DO! i have enjoyed the podcast for about 4 or 5 months. i downloaded every episode and have listened to them for a whole day straight at times. my thoughts and prayers are with the podcast crew and Bob's family. i wish there was something i could do....i hope the podcast crew continues the podcast. whenever they can come together and record again, i will be listening.
