What a day. I remember it well.

From left to right, that's me with the can, Otie in the black t-shirt, Goliath, Brofan sitting, Bobo with that big grin of his, PhotoRon in his flamingo shirt and I think that's Coot in the Capt Skipper tie dye.

Sending thoughts to Bobo and his family...

Thoughts and prayers going out to Bobo as he continues in his battle. I've never met Bobo personally but have grown to love him through the stories I've read on these pages. And grown to admire him for the courage and grace he has displayed as he has faced this most difficult of challenges. He has had many smiles to share both in his words and on his face (thanks to the sweeties for that most special picture). He's been a champion not only for himself and his battle but for others and provided consistent reminders to everyone of the importance of keeping one's health in check. He's been a first responder when others here faced similar tragedies in their lives and a reminding force to people to focus thoughts and prayers on those needing them most. He's a lover of flamingos. And even when the going got tough he embraced life and enjoyed. The tales of Bobofest are legendary and a testiment to this.

Thoughts and prayers going out to Denise and Cami as they try to live through what must be one of life's greatest heartbreaks for them both. My hope is that the memories of all the love and happiness that have preceeded this saddest of times will rain down on their hearts constantly and provide them some comfort. And that they can also find comfort in the knowledge that there are many here who will take on some burden to give them release.

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

For Bob, Denise and Cami

God looked around His garden And found an empty place.
He then looked down upon the earth And saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you And lifted you to rest.
Godís garden must be beautiful He always takes the best.
He saw the road was getting rough And the hills were hard to climb,
So He closed your weary eyelids And whispered "Peace be thine".
It broke our hearts to lose you But you didnít go alone,
For part of us went with you The day God called you home.

January 30th, 2006

It was round 1 of my dealing with Depression, Suicidal thoughts and anxiety.

I got this PM from a special person

Hey Kenny,

About all I can say is, is if there is ANYTHING I can do, please let me know. I've been through some pretty difficult times myself and have found members of this site to be remarkably decent & caring. They can also have some good and helpful information as well.

All my best, Kenny - Bob


March 13th, 2006

Hey Kenny,

Thanks for a great thread! Before discovering the Brothers, CCR was MY band! and Fogerty still rocks! My friends always kid me that that I can like both "3 Minute Fogerty" and the Brothers. What can I say?? Thanks again for a cool thread!

Bob


Just made me think of you Bob...........Lord knows you have been through some hard times Brother. God Bless you !

I'm sure I'm like so many, thoughts of Bob swirling round and round my brain. Trying to focus on the good times, the many laughs and the pranks we'd pull on each other.

I have sixteen voicemails saved on my phone, they are all Bobo. In a way it's almost a timeline. I smile as I listen and then the tears well as I hear the voice weakening.

I think I'll stick to the good times.

I liked to call Bob and then pinch my nose and alter my voice...

"Bob O'Brien."

"Yes, this is Mr. O'Brien then?"

"Yes, Bob O'Brien."

"Yes Mr. O'Brien this is Joseph Pettigrew of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation."

"Yes, what is this about?"

"Recently, there was a toxic rail spill that while investigating the Department found a set of footprints leading from the scene to your office doorway. How would you explain this Mr. O'Brien?"

"Coot you no good...."

He paid in friendship.

Bob and I PM'd back and forth a bit. As people who've been touched (or bitch slapped, as I often say) by cancer, we had a few meaningful PM exchanges. Bob's a lovely guy. That's why this sucks so bad.

When I found out I had skin cancer,melanoma, I was home alone. I was freaking out as a dear friend of mine and a neighbor of mine had just passed from it that year. I figured i was the 3rd all i could think about was my daughter and wife. So I came here and i was supported by many here, Bobo being the first to tell me I was going to get through it, will never forget the kindness and understanding he gave me that day.It helped alot Bob, Thanks.

Bob's a good man and losing him to cancer hurts. But knowing him just a little bit here has been a true gift. so I'll always cherish his friendship.

My heart goes out to his family, his friends and to all of us who know him only here behind a computer screen

More Bobo reflections:

He would remember every one of my wifes blood test, scan or Doctors appointment and was Johnny on the spot with a telephone call to check on the results. Often I was too drained to talk and he would call back several times and then threaten to call my wife (which he did on more than one occasion!). This was right in the middle of his fight yet he always put others first. I was so bummed over one scan, Bob bought me the benefit concert DVD for George Harrison. It was something that touched him and he wanted to share it with me and Lisa.That was classic Bob.

Peace and comfort being sent to the Big Guy. We love you Bob!

To think that Bob was one of my biggest supporters through all my chemo, is something touching and a bit ironic now. There is immense guilt in my apperant success and then his luck...... It wasn't supposed to be this way. We were supposed to be both be successful warriors, get well, ride in my Firebird togethor and go to a Steelers game.....

today I flipped a bit on the GB at all the political crap and people that won't go to the forum, and then in a weird sense of turnaround wisdom, I pictured and could almost hear Bob telling me, "Tony, just mellow out, it's not worth it...." he always has the calmer take on things than me......

My mom died of cancer, my sister too.... try to put logic to any of that, or Bob, and it is the vicious circle of the unanswerable........

shakes fist at sky.............................
