Bob was such a loving, giving and caring soul. This one is so, so hard to accept.

Most of you know I'm a nurse and I think back at all the times when Bob would say, "Lib, will you come take care of me when the time comes?" Oh, how I wish I could have... how I wish I could be with Denise and Camille right now.

All I know is, at this very moment, a very kind soul has been lifted Home... a Home where there are no tears, no pain, no suffering, no sorrow, no evil cancer!.... and yes, Bobo, there are pink flamingos in Heaven. I'm sure of it, brother.

I'll see you later, BobO. I'm sure gonna miss ya!

My heart is and will remain with Denise and Cami. I'm so sorry.

Libby, you were one of the calls I couldn't have made it through. I hope you understand.

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



That's Bobo!

In recent days, as Tom Dodd and I have visited with Denise it has become abundantly clear that she and Cami are in immediate financial difficulty. There is no easy way to say this other than, if it is possible, they need our help, now.

There is no amount too small. This is an immediate need beyond the amount raised several years ago for Cami's college fund.

Do what you can. Bob has given so much of himself. It is our turn now.

Send it directly to:

Denise O'Brien
541 Locust Valley Road
Greensburg, PA 15601

Thank you in advance for your kindness.

May I suggest that a money order be sent instead of a personal check?? That way the bank will not hold funds for up to 10 days for the personal checks to clear...as Coot said, no amount is too small.

Coot, from me personally, thank you for all you did by keeping us up to date on things. I know it was hard for you.


I felt so frustrated by what Bob had to endure, it was the very least I could do. He was comfortable with me being "his voice" and I was only too glad to do it.

"Til I Die"

I'm a cork on the ocean
floating over the raging sea
how deep is the ocean
how deep is the ocean

I'm a rock in a landslide
rolling over the mountainside
how deep is the valley
how deep is the valley

I'm a leaf on a windy day
pretty soon I'll be blown away
How long will the wind blow
how long will the wind blow

These things are here until I die
These things are here until I die



Bob used some of these lyrics for a sig line for awhile -- PM'd him immediately & told him what a cool song I thought that was -- he thought it was cool that I knew that song -- set in motion some wonderful PMs about that song, his trials & tribulations & other things

It's by the Beach Boys, although I believe it appeared on a Brian Wilson solo CD -- just a thing of beauty, with wonderful Hammond organ playing -- and each & every time I hear it, I will think of my penpal & cyberbrother, Bob O'Brien

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....



Jim, this is a sad statement of the world we live in. I sometimes wonder where the humanity is. My wife has an autoimmune disorder and was hospitalised and only a couple of her fellow teachers ever called when she was hospitalized. I got calls from her students but peers, just about nada.

Then we have this little community of fellow ABB fans and I have received nothing but support and kindness. I have met some folks here but want to meet more as in general we be good people.

Bobo being one of our best fo sure
