Coot, your post was beautiful, thank you. Boy this hurts. But for Bob, I'm glad he is free of pain. Still in shock though....

Rest easy now, Bobo. Peace to Denise and Cami.

We should rejoice in a life well-lived. Bob's suffering is now over. For that I am thankful.

When we gathered for the Pittsburgh show this last summer, Bob went out of his way to get VIP parking passes for those that were coming. He got one for me, even though with my handicapped tags I was able to get into the VIP parking section without one.

He had forgotten his handicapped permit would get him into the VIP section also. We had a laugh about it. So he made arrangements to get the passes that he paid for out to others. He wanted us all to be able to gather in the VIP parking area together.

Bob was too sick to make to the Pittsburgh show this summer and we missed him terribly. But I will always
remember his kindness and his generosity. As sick as he was he was still thinking of and doing things for
his brothers and sisters. There is a lesson for all of us in that.

I am glad that His Suffering has ended, Even as my eyes fill with tears for our loss and his family's loss of
a truly loving and giving person.

May God Bless and surround with his Love all those that are grieving the loss of a truly fine brother.

My heart is with Denise and Cami. God Bless them.

As many of you know Bob loved the music of John Fogerty.

This song is the first track on his latest release "Revival."

Seems like the song was written for Bob.


Don't You Wish It Was True

I dreamed I walked in heaven
Just the other night
There was so much beauty
So much light

Don't you wish it was true
Don't you wish it was true

An angel took my hand
Said you don't have to hurry
Got all the time in the world
Don't worry

Don't you wish it was true
Lord don't you wish it was true

What if tomorrow
Everybody was your friend
Anyone could take you in
No matter what or where you been

What if tomorrow
Everybody had enough
The world wasn't quite so rough
Lord don't you wish it was true

He said the world's gonna change
And it's startin' today
They'll be no more armies
No more hate

Don't you wish it was true
Don't you wish it was true

And all the little children
Will live happily
There'll be singin' and laughter
Sweet harmony

Don't you wish it was true
Lord don't you wish it was true

What if tomorrow
Everybody under the sun
Was happy just to live as one
No borders or battles to be won

What if tomorrow
Everybody was your friend
Happiness would never end
Lord don't you wish it was true




I hope Bob's joy and happiness never ends now that his suffering has been left behind.

Wow. I had that warm feeling this morning, and the surest sense that Bob was done with the struggle and headed for paradise. One thing I've become certain of; I don't have a clue as to God's ways, have no grasp of the mind of God. I don't understand the whys and hows of it. But I am equally as certain that my friend Bobo is in good hands now, watching over and encouraging all of us to be better people. My heart goes out to Cami and Denise, and i hope now they can truly grieve this good man, friend, husband, and father, and that maybe in the days to come they will have that same warm and comforting feeling that I have right now. The road does go on forever, and its only a matter of time til I see you again. I'll come here from time to time and write to you, let you know what is going on.

Beyond the door
There's peace I'm sure
And I know
There'll be no more
Tears in heaven

We do LOVE that fella named Bobo....and The Road DOES On Forever.....

George McCorkle wrote "The Journey Home" as a tribute to Toy Caldwell....I want to dedicate "The Journey Home" to Bobo....Bobo, you have made your journey home.


The Journey Home
(Scott Miller/George McCorkle)


I didnít want to believe it

When I heard the news

Another old friend was gone

Those of us who loved him

All gathered around

And started singing those old sweet songs

With our backs to a Carolina wind

We watched a chapter come to an end


Chorus


Thereís another free bird in the southern sky

Canít you see heís searching for a rainbow

The sky is crying canít you hear them guitars moan

Another midnight rider has made the journey home




We were chased off that hillside by a driving rain

We scattered like ashes across the sea

But tears fall from heaven when the good die young

Some things are just meant to be

Like there was no tomorrow

Thatís how he chose to live

He gave it all, there was nothing left to give


Chorus


Thereís another free bird in the southern sky

Canít you see heís looking for a rainbow

The sky is crying canít you hear them guitars moan

Another midnight rider has made the journey home.


Good bye, my friend.

No matter how prepared I thought I was for this, when I read the title of that thread in Anything Goes, the sorrow that fell on me was like ten ton of bricks. Though I'll take that weight gladly to know Bob is free from his...sail on to hear that heavenly choir my brother...you're one in a million. See ya in the next world...bye for now, Mr. O'Brien.


My deepest symapathy and heartfelt condolences to Denise and Cami and all his family...much Peace & Love to you all.

1/11/04 The Rex Theater, Pittsburgh, PA
So Close...So Far Away, Kam-ma-lay, Joyful Noise, Life Is Crazy, Lonely Avenger, This Sky>Impressions, Soul Stew>Everything is Everything, Drown In My Own Tears, To Know You Is To Love You, Volunteered Slavery> Yield Not, Afro Blue --Encore: Freddie's Dead

What a great show!!

It was one of the times I was blessed to see a show with Bobo in his hometown...not the first time and not the last...
Drove up from Virginia, and promptly got lost in Pittsburgh like I always do, crossing back and forth over those effn bridges, with Bob on the cell phone trying to guide me to the theater....I finally got there and couldn't find a place to park anywhere....then made an illegal left turn right in front of a couple of cops.
After they pulled me over, one sees a baggy on the truck floor and figures he's in cop heaven....turns out his partner was more level headed and didn't take long to notice the food in the plastic bag.
Anyway, good cop asks me what the heck I'm doing in Pittsburgh - I say "going to see Derek Trucks with a friend" - turns out good cop is a fan and he lets me off....

Finally get into the theater, having only missed a portion of So Close, So Far Away, and found Bob sitting down near the front left, holding a seat for me.


We didn't do much talking during the show - but oh man, we got Kam-ma-lay, Joyful Noise, This Sky>Impressions, Afro Blue and a Freddie's Dead encore all in one show!

After the show, Bob and I stood around outside in a light misty rain, talking about life, family, friends, and how he was faring and, what I remember most, how local folks seemed to be avoiding him and his cancer....
...I'm mentioning that to let you know just how much Bob appreciated all of us here, he could sense the love....

I don't know if I can listen to that show anytime soon, but think I'll give it a try.

As you mentioned Jim, it always struck me how strange Bob's situation was at work and even with his own sisters.

We know Bob's friendliness and caring attitude and I would ask him when he'd return to work after having missed an extended time, what the other employees said to welcome him back. He'd say that throughout his entire ordeal not more than a couple people had even asked him how he was doing. His relationship with his sisters was quite strained also, he'd remark he hadn't spoken to one in more than five years and the other had called maybe two years previously, well after his struggle had begun.

I'd have given anything to have grown up with and shared a family upbringing with Bob (we'd have been twins since we are the same age ), I just can't fathom his own family behaving in that fashion.

All I know is he always treated me as a brother and as family. I've not met a more caring person. A shining example to anyone.

Miss you so much Bob.

For everything there is a season,
And a time for every matter under heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to seek, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to throw away;
A time to tear, and a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate,
A time for war, and a time for peace.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

R.I.P. brother Bobo

My guess, knowing Bobo, is the first thing he did was look up Lisa Dodd to see how she is doing.

Then he sought out George Harrison and Duane and asked them to play him a song......
