    That sometime, perhaps during Bawb's memorial service, the DISboards go black in his honor? There are so many of us that can't make it and it would be a time of silence to honor our friend that we never had the privilege of meeting.

    That actually sounds like a great idea. Bawb was an amazing guy and unfortunately most of us are scattered about the country and can't make it, that would be a great honor. I also have a suggestion: Possibly renaming the podcast forum the : DIS Unplugged Forum: In Memory of Bob Varley.

    I think that's a great idea...

    I really, REALLY wish there were some way DH & I could make it there this weekend, but it's just not possible for us right now...

    A simple picture of Bob, or his favorite things would be nice.

    Show his cart, the "Parks", a shuttle launch (from the far end of the lot). These are Bawb things.

    I think that is a very nice gesture as well.

    While I think a number of things could be done we need to remember that Bob's friends - the Webmasters will be supporting the family.
    There may not be anyone free to make these types of changes :goodvibes

    What could be done to show our support if we can't actually be there for the memorial? I want to do something.

    on another forum where we lost a high profile admin/mod the vast majority of members, changed their avatars to a memorial candle, which was a subtle, but poignant tribute to the loss for that person's family.

    I have changed mine anyways for now, if it upsets the podcast team, bob's family or friends, please let me know and I shall change it back out of respect for their wishes without question.
