I never knew the man, or exchanged any form of contact with him, but I can't help but get swept up in the outpour of emotion that is felt for this man.
R.I.P. Bobo.

Bob O'Brien you will be greatly missed. Thank you for your strength, your friendship, your amazing sense of humor, for teaching us about love and mostly about life and what's truly important. The world is a better place for having had you here.

Strength and love to Denise and Cami.

I have had the extreme honor of getting to know Bob OíBrien over these past five years or so. Not only were we contemporaries, I truly believe he was my brother from a different mother.

Bob taught me so very much. How to be a better man. How to be a better husband. How to be a better father. Simply, how to be a better person.

As many of you know, Bob fought so bravely against the cancer that was intent on decimating him. I know of no one who showed as much courage, resilience, and determination to conquer the many challenges that he faced. More than that, he wanted to educate people about what had happened to him and how others could take steps to protect themselves with regular checkups and early detection.

Bob and I had so much in common. Same age. A wife and children that we both adore. Same musical tastes, same religious beliefs, same perspectives of almost everything. I think that that is why this is so hard. I always could put myself in exactly the same position Bob was, only I didnít have the disease to fight. I could so easily answer, what if this was me?

We had many wonderful talks through the years. We laughed, a lot. We cried too. He always told me no matter how down he might have been at the time, that no matter what, he always felt better after we had talked. That really, really means a lot to me. I canít adequately put it into words.

A number of us got to meet Bob over a magical weekend several years ago in Pittsburgh. That whole experience exemplifies to me what this place is all about. Nearly 30 of us, from all over the US and Canada, aware of Bobís struggles at that time, went to Pittsburgh to attend an ABB concert. Bob was unable to travel any real distance, and being the devout family man that he was, really didnít entertain the idea of traveling to any far away concerts. His girls liked the beach, so, if a vacation was taken, to the beach is where they went. So the bunch of us went to him.

What all of us had in common that were able to attend BoboFest was the love for Bob and the desire to spend some real quality time with him. I didnít make the final decision to attend until only ten days or so before the show. Itís one of the smartest decisions that Iíve ever made in my life. Really, I knew that I had to go. There wasnít any other choice.

All of us were drawn together by a website of all things. Diverse people, diverse ideas, different in many ways but connected by our caring about and compassion for Bob.

He told me many times what that meant to him. He found it hard to believe that so many would make that kind of effort to meet and get to know him.

Over the last several years we talked at length many times. There were ups and there were downs. What amazes me most about Bob is during all these difficult times for him, emotional and physically, he always asked about others. He was concerned for their wellbeing, he wanted me to say hi to people when the disease made it difficult for him to do simple every day things like using his computer. He never lost sight of how much people cared for him. He gave that and much more back.

It is tough when I recall a conversation that we had recently. He was scared. He was really fighting the emotional demons as he thought about his wife, his daughter and his own fate. He was frightened. He loved his family so. He wanted to live, he wanted a life with them. He knew that his time was short. I wish he could have been spared all those horrible feelings and all the pain and suffering that he endured.

I really have no idea how to comprehend such things as an afterlife. It is the greatest mystery of all mysteries. I only hope that Bob is finally free, free of humanly pain and the suffering that this disease caused him. I do believe in a heaven, I know Bob is there now and forever.

We told each other many times that we loved each other. I wish that I could tell him right now. I wish I could hear again that unmistakable laugh.

I only hope one day to be able to have many more long chats with Bob again.

Until then, my friend and my brother.

Nothing can make up for the absence of someone we love,
and it would be wrong to try to find a substitute;
we must simply hold out and see it through.
That sounds very hard at first,
but at the same time it is a great consolation,
for the gap, as long as it remains unfilled,
preserves the bonds between us.
It is nonsense to say God fills the gap;
he doesn't fill it, but on the contrary,
he keeps it empty and so helps us to keep alive
our former communion with each other,
even at the cost of pain....
The dearer and richer our memories,
the more difficult the separation.
But gratitude changes the pangs of memory into tranquil joy.
The beauties of the past are borne,
not as a thorn in the flesh,
but as a precious gift in themselves.

(Dietrich Bonhoeffer)

I didn't have the pleasure of meeting him in person either, but like Rusty said, Bobo was one of us and I will miss him. Sincere condolences to his family and freinds, RIP Brother.

I am sad Bob had to pass away, I am sad I never got to shake the man's hand or catch a show with him, but I am grateful to have been able to call him my friend, even if for just a little while.

Bob was one of the truly good ones, he's gonna be missed but his lessons taught will be remembered, and hopefully passed on down the line. Thanks Bob
