So sad....I've been away from the board for a while and how terrible to come back and see this news. Bob will be missed by so many.

My thoughts and prayers to his family and friends.

Bob will be missed by all of us who never even met him. Thoughts, prayers and support go to his family, Diana and Brian, and to the podcast gang as they continue without him.

I too heard of Bawbs passing on the WDW radio show this week and my heart sank. I am so sorry for the family and friends. It's funny how you can just imagine how you knew somebody without even formerly meeting them. Prayers and healing thoughts for everyone. The Podcast will have a hole in it without the witty words of Bawb.

I feel like I have lost a dear friend because I have. I never met Bob but like many of us he was such a part of our lives that I think of him as a friend.

My 12 year old daughter and I listen to the show every week without fail.

Bob will always be in our hearts and minds

I just saw this thread, as I don't go to the podcast board very often. Bob will be sorely missed.

My condolences to Bob's family and to the Podcast team.

Took me this long to finally put my fingers to the keyboard and add in my condolences.

It still seems so unreal that Bawb is gone. It will be hard to hear the first podcast without him... and I am sure it will be especially hard for the team to record it. Although I am looking forward to it.

Losing a friend you've never met... how does one handle this?
I have been reading things everyone else has been posting daily, for over a week now. At least I know I am not alone in my grief.

The feelings of confusion are unfamiliar. I have lost grandparents who lived long, full lives, but no unexpected tragedies.

I just can't imagine how hard this is for all of the family... including the podcast family. Because you are all like friends to me too (Pete, Kevin, Julie, Corey, John), I feel for you too.

So, sending thoughts and prayers...

I'm so sorry to hear of Bawb's passing. I"m mostly a lurker but I came to the board today fearing that something was wrong when I realized that my favorite podcast hadn't updated in 2 weeks. I thought it was my feed...sadly it is so much worse. My condolances and prayers go out to the Varley family and the entire podcast team. Bob had such strong character you couldn't help but love him and what he had to add. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you.

My heartfelt condolences and prayers go out to Bawb's family, and to all of his dear family and friends. I was not on the boards much last week (just returned from the World), but when I checked early Wednesday morning to see why the podcast wasn't up on iTunes, my heart sank when I read Pete's message. As so many have already stated, it is surreal to feel such a loss when you didn't personally know Bawb, but I guess that truly goes to show just what a special man he was. Just listening to him week after week gave you a perfect idea of what a wonderful person he was - friend foremost, and Disney lover always.

Many to all those feeling Bawb's loss so keenly. May the virtual support of so many serve as some comfort to you.

Dreaming of Disney...

Many family trips to see the Mouse!

Wow, I just opened iTunes for the first time in 3 weeks, and after a few minutes, noticed nothing was automatically downloading. When I came to the boards just five minutes ago, I heard of this news.

I hope the entire podcast squad knows of my heartfelt sympathy and to you all, you have brought such joy into my life, and Bob will be sorely missed.

Unhappy To Bawb

I am singing this tonight for Chorus and found the lyrics for the song!
Song arranged by Carl Strommen
i thought it was a very good song for this time

To the sky from the earth in lofty flight,
From the hills so green in the blush of spring.
So away with thee shall I fly, shall I fly,
From this place to a land so far away.

Softly now with the dawn I will ride with the wind,
O'er the hills through the mist on the wings of thee.

Spirit fly, spirit fly
To the cloud up above

Spirit fly to a place beyond the sky.
Spirit fly, spirit fly to a place on high.

Softly now with the dawn I go with thee.
