    Bob's memorial was beautiful and moving.

    It was a wonderful and heartfelt testament to an amazing guy.

    The gentleman officiating the memorial mentioned that while he had never been to this website, he visited after being told of Bob's involvement.

    I believe he said he was in "awe" of the heartfelt wishes and good will and sheer number of people posting. He described us as a "world wide phenomenon."

    So even though you may not have been able to be there in body, you were all certainly there in spirit and energy.

    I am and always will be proud to name Bob my friend.

    I am also proud to be a member of this community.

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    Kevin

  3. One of the recurrent themes was how people from all over the world were touched by Bawb.
    Pete gave a lovely, heartfelt eulogy that just blew everone away.
    There were a lot of laughs too though as we celebrated Bob's life and that is how he would have wanted it.
    I've known Bob for 10 years and even I learned a lot about him. He was an incredible person.

    I'm sure it will take some time, but I would love to hear some of the Bawb stories you heard today. It makes it a bit easier for those of us that could only be there in spirit today.

    It was a beautiful celebration of Bob's life. He has a great family.

    There wasn't a dry eye in the room when they were telling stories about Bob. They also played some very meaningful Disney songs to complement the memorial for Bob.

    Thanks for posting Kevin and Alex. I am happy Bob was remembered in such a special way. And I am sure he would be overjoyed with being a "world wide phenomenon." (He is probably gonna need a bigger halo soon.) ;)

    Kevin and Alex -

    My heart goes out to you and the rest of the crew today and in the days to come. It is wonderful to hear Bob has a celebratory send-off.

    Personally, thanks to both of you for taking the podcast crew lead and coming here this week to talk to us and inform us. I know how hard it has been for you to do this and I really appreciate it. I am sure it took a lot of of Pete to know you are here as well as there with him.

    I hope we your "fans" have brought you comfort as well

    Thank you for checking in with us, Kevin, Alex, and safetymom. It's been great having everyone here on the boards to commiserate with, but I think we all wish we could have been with you today. At least we were all together in our thoughts.

    My thoughts today often went to you all and Bob's family all the way in Florida. I am glad to hear the tribute and service was beautiful. I cannot see a way that it could not have been, with the love the surrounds Bob and all his family.

    It sounds like a lovely service. We have been praying daily for Bob's family and all of podcast team.

    It still feels all feels like a bad dream and one morning a new show will show up and everything will be "normal."

    While I've been reading every post and have shed many tears, I haven't found the right words of my own to share until now.
    I feel such a profound sense of shock that this wonderful, funny and sincere voice I've enjoyed is no longer with us. But, I know my feelings must pale in comparison to those who knew and truely cared for this man.
    My heart and my prayers go out to his family and each member of his Podcast family. I hope you all find some comfort in each other and in your memories while you come to terms with this your own shock and sorrow.
    With lots of love and prayers,
    Tammy

    I am so glad to hear it went well, and I think that everyone who makes it to tomorrow's meet -n- greet will definitely help in healing the hearts of the podcast team.

    Thanks for checking in Will and Kevin, it is much appreciated. :thumbsup2
