    Hey Gang

    I have info on the memorial service for Bob.

    It will be on Saturday May 3rd at 3PM. Below is the address for the funeral home:

    Becker Funeral Home
    806 West Minneola Avenue
    P.O. Box 120864
    Clermont, Florida 34712
    PH: (352) 394-7121
    http://www.beckerfamilyfuneral.com

    In lieu of flowers Diana is requesting donations be made to Hospice of the Comforter in Bob’s name. I told her that several folks here have already started donating to Give Kids the World in his name as well and that is fine if you wish to do that instead.

    They are putting together a slideshow of pictures of Bob for the service. If you have any pictures of Bob that you would like included in the slideshow please email them to MaryAnna (a very good friend of Diana’s) at bawstngrl@yahoo.com and she will include them in the slideshow. I think Bob would like as many pictures of him with his PodCast family included – and I know Diana will take great comfort in this as well.

    If you wish to send something to Diana directly instead of the Funeral Home you can send that to the podcast email address that Kevin posted earlier.

    Now - as far as May 4th goes - obviously, we will not be recording the live show. That would just be too hard on everyone.

    We have kept the room at Gaylord Palms and would like to invite every one who is still interested to be please join us. It will be more of a 'meet and greet' and a chance for us to tell Bob stories and remember a wonderful Man. Diana will be there and she is looking forward to every one who was planning on attending the live show to attend.

    There will be food and non-alcoholic drinks. The timing is the same - if you want to show up any time after 12:30PM that would be fine. We have the room until 4PM.

    We will be in the Orange Blossom Room. You will have to cross the lobby (it is on the same level as the entrance and there are signs everywhere) - we will have signs in the lobby to help you find it.

    We hope to see as many faces there as possible.

    Thanks
    John

    Thank you for the information John...

    I wish that I could be there on Sunday, but I won't be able to make it...raise a glass in Bawb's honor for me! And someone give Dianer and Brian and everyone else who needs them hugs from me.

    I find it beyond magnanimous and wonderful that Diana would include Bob's fans in his services and the fact that she is willing to attend a May 4th memorial for Bob is a true testament to how much Bob and Diana care for the DIS Community.

    Many prayers of peace and comfort to the Varley family and the Pod Cast crew from a big fan here in Chicago. :hug:

    I really wish I could be there. I would even be willing to make the road trip if I didn't have to be at work. I'm sad I will miss it. But know that I will be there in spirit.

    You don't know how badly I would like to attend both events...however, living on the westcoast creates a logistic problem. Honestly, if there's anyway I can find decent airfare -- I might just show up. If not, I'll be there in spirit (with soggy tissues, either way!). :(
