    I have no idea what to say. Nothing I can think of seems like "enough." As many have said, I consider Bob, and all of you, friends I have never met. I am so very sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with Bob's immediate family, his podcast-team-family and his DIS family. I hope that knowing how many lives Bob touched is of some comfort.
     
  4. I am just in shock. Bob was one of the original Dis'ers and the first person from the DIS I ever met in real life. He used to live near me and I went over to his house one day and put some computer wiring in while his son played soccer with my daughter in his yard. That was almost 10 years ago.......
    I've never seen him get really angry at anyone and when he did it was funny, he just didn't know how.
    He was one of the nicest people I have ever met and I will miss him greatly.
    You were much too young my friend.

    Very sad day. My mom just called me with the news. I was shocked. While I never was able to meet Bob he was a weekly friend. He will be missed and our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and the podcast crew.

    I can not believe your tragic news today. This is so horribly sad and shocking---I am so sorry to hear that your dear Bob has passed---he reminded me so much of a sweet, caring uncle or a dad you can ask advise from type of a man---what a friend he must have been to all of you and please do let us know how we can send our condolances to his family, and know we send ours to all of you. He was dear to so many of us and will be missed more than he could have ever imagined.

    I am so terribly saddened by this news. I have never met Bob but considered him a friend nonetheless. He had such a loving spirit and will be so, so missed.

    Please, please tell Diana as well as the rest of Bob's family of our love for him and for them. They will be in my thoughts and prayers in the upcoming weeks.

    What a tragedy...Bob's was a life well-lived.

    My heart and condolences go out to Bob's family, the Podcast crew, and my fellow Dis'ers. I know I had to read Pete's post a couple of times just to comprehend what I was reading. I almost didn't even come to the board today until I saw this posting from the main forum page and had to see what was going on. I never met Bob, but I certainly looked for him while I was at the parks. He IS my favorite podcaster and I couldn't wait to listen to the show so I could hear what he was going to say next. I always thought of him as that weird crazy uncle everyone has in their family that everyone loves. He will be greatly missed and know he is in a better place.
