Hey Bob, wish I could be there tomorrow for the send-off. Nice obit, you certainly have been loved and admired by many people. Don't worry about your family; coot, buzy, and many others have stepped up and they will be ok financially, and eventually emotinally. We don't like it, but we'll get through all this. Miss you brother.

Through all the love, sharing and compassion I see among so many on here, I would say Bobo definitely lived up to and surpassed one of his main purposes in life, which was obviously to bring people who were eventually supposed to meet each other together, to show them that true, unconditional love does exist, and to set an example for those of us who need to slow down and examine our own purpose/mission in life by making some changes in our lives to be better friends, parents, co-workers, spouses, siblings, etc. Sometimes it takes a very special person to touch our lives to make us see life in a better way than what we've been doing. Losing someone special hits us so hard that we are forced to examine their impact on us.

Thank you Bob for helping me on my own path. Your life was inspiring to many of us here.

I remember the first time I met the 3D bobo, September 5, 2004 at a ABB show in Pixburgher, it was a brief 1st encounter in the parking lot before the show. Of course like many of you, I met him right here in the forum long before that. After this same show Lynn and I were in line for the Instant Live and who should be in front of us in that line....you got it, good ol' bobo. Coincidence ? I think not !!
We did the ritual critiquing of the ABB show we just saw, a must for all hard core peach heads. How about that guitar solo, them drums, feel that bass line ?? Then the sudden realization that "crap, this line is starting to move". We laughed because normally people can't wait to get to the prize at the end of the line, but we just wanted to talk, more...and so it began.
From a typed faceless name on a website to pm's back and forth to an actual person, he was what I expected, so much to share and give to the world, here, there and beyond.
Bobo was not only a dear loving friend, he was a big brother. Over the next few years we'd share pms, emails, calls and the best of all encompassed in all those varieties of communication...the laughter !! Even in bobo's hardest times, he had "the" way to make you smile.
I miss him so...and folks thanks for indulging me, apologies for the long post but I do feel at home, here with all those that love bobo along with us. It's funny that my "blood" family cannot fully comprehend this, they understand and they comfort but I know they "just don't get it". And that's cool, it really is....we truly are a rare breed aren't we ?!

Bobofest I and II. What a time we had...July 16, 2005...the day of Bobofest I. The day a bunch of us embarked upon Pixburgher and came together in honor of bobo. We wanted to make this day absolutely perfect for bobo...and I must say, with all the combined efforts, a grand job was done !! I look around my computer/music room and the party favours of that day are still hanging about. The bobofest nametags (which btw I have alot of if anyone wants one for a keepsake), the leis, pink flamingo shirts, cup and hat, poster and passes. The look on Kirk's face was priceless as he told the herd of pink flamingos where to stand. And then there was bobo, good ol' bobo...grooving along and enjoying the heck out of the show with a smile brighter than the lightshow itself. A good day indeed.

Bobofest II was this year, August 15 and while the quantity of attendees was down, even bobo was too sick to attend, we knew all of you ALL of you were there, as was bobo. We again had a great time....all six of us !! LOL !! We had made sure to get a poster signed and hopes of delivering didn't quite come to fruition, but Goliath tried...and GMan, we thank you for that. You know, even though bobo wasn't there, he got us parking passes to the premiere lots....sheesh.

bobo taught me to try and take care of myself, he said remember what you put in your body has to come out somehow...just think about it. He told me to ask Lynn to go to the doctors...for not only himself but for us. And Lynn did...his "no doctors needed" attitude changed as I told him of the alternative that bobo spoke of. And he made no more excuses.

bobo taught me a great deal about Keith Urban. I had no idea who KU was until bobo enlighted me. I was invited to a KU concert by a friend but didn't go because I didn't know who he was. I told bobo this, within the next week I had so many KU cd's (issued and bootleg...now who in the heck does bootleg KU shows is beyond me) I now can sing any of his tunes on any given day...lol !! He made me promise the next local KU concert that I might be able to go to...to make sure I do. And I will, tomorrow night December 15, 2007 in London, ON. Another coincidence ?? Same day as his memorial and I've had tickets for months...again I think not !!

Life is short people, we've heard that phrase time and again and will for all our days I imagine, but heed those three small words...Life is short !! It's yours to do with what you will. During a converation, me stressing over work, a wise ol' bobo once told me, "if you can change things in your life for the better, than do it...if you can't, well that just sucks" Oh how he made me laugh...and still does.

Through tears and laughter I will always remember you bobo, this selfishness of crying and sadness I am feeling right now will pass....no more pain, no more suffering for you.

We will as a collective, strive to help Denise and Cami in any way we can and will keep them in our thoughts and prayers.

That being said...bobo I love you, will miss you, I will sing my heart out for you tomorrow night at Keith Urbans concert (though many around me will not appreciate it,) but right now big guy, I hear tell there's a shirt for me to bid on and another story to post there.

Love to all of YOU...our extended family !!
Karen, Lynn and the entire Bomberry family

ps - If I may humbly suggest, if you have it in your colletion....at 1:00 pm tomorrow, Saturday, December 15, 2007 in honor of our bobo, please put on the Allman Brothers Band, Post-Gazette Pavillion show of July 16, 2005, Bobofest I. Thank you !!

Absolutely beautiful as always Karen.

As I have told Steve, I will forever regret not making it to Pixburg that day in 05.

But that call from the parking lot meant the world to me.

Ironically, I was in a parking lot in NJ waiting to see Bob's boy John Fogerty.

Go figure eh?

God Speed Bob



When I die and they lay me to rest
Gonna go to the place that's the best
When I lay me down to die
Goin' up to the spirit in the sky
Goin' up to the spirit in the sky

That's where I'm gonna go when I die
When I die and they lay me to rest
Gonna go to the place that's the best

Prepare yourself you know it's a must
Gotta have a friend in Jesus
So you know that when you die
He's gonna recommend you
To the spirit in the sky
Gonna recommend you
To the spirit in the sky

That's where you're gonna go when you die
When you die and they lay you to rest
You're gonna go to the place that's the best

Never been a sinner I never sinned
I got a friend in Jesus
So you know that when I die
He's gonna set me up with
The spirit in the sky
Oh set me up with the spirit in the sky

That's where I'm gonna go when I die
When I die and they lay me to rest
I'm gonna go to the place that's the best
Go to the place that's the best

I thought this was a nice card.

"Love Lives On"

"Some peoples lives
can truly make a difference
However long or short
their lives on earth,
They give the gifts
of kindness and of caring,
They sow the seeds
of friendship and self-worth.
Some people's lives
are beautiful examples
of putting others first,
and when they're gone,
The lives of those they touched
are so much richer,
And the love they shared
Lives on and on"


Remembering with you
a special person
who touched so many lives
with warmth and caring.......
and hoping that it helps to know
the loss your feeling now
is a loss that many other hearts
are sharing.


We feel you in our Hearts Brother Bob.

Picture made me sad again....I guess more sad would be more accurate.

I have a question - although my Pastor/Elder already answered....

That clock I made a few years ago, but never finished - it was supposed to be for Bobo's birthday a few years ago.

It only needs a piece of glass to be cut and about an hour's more work....I could have it finished this weekend.

Would you:

1. send it to Denise soon, or wait awhile (how long?)

2. raffle it and send the money?

3. keep it as a way to remember Bobo (and a painful reminder not to procrastinate...

)


Number one's in the lead.....

I had never seen Bobo's family...it made me more sad also ...such a pretty wife and a beautiful Daughter.It made me me think of what they must be going through.

In my opinion you should finish that Clock and send it to her, and tell her what it was meant for. I would send it in a month or so. No matter when you send it, the pain will always be there.
But it would be a nice gesture in his memory.

Thats just what I think. You do what you feel.

Jim ... it may be that the sentimental value of the clock is only between you and Bob ... and it may not extend to Denise ... I would therefore ask Denise if she would like to have it as a keepsake, and if not then you could raffle it or keep it as you see fit.

One thing you must do, however, is finish it ... and perhaps put a comemorative plate on it dedicated to Bob.

Just my 2 pennies ...

Good luck with your decision, Jim - whatever it is will be correct. OTF, Kenny, Chuck, and Colin have given some good advise but you'll know what the right thing to do is.

The picture of Bob with Cami and Denise is beautiful and sad. What a lovely family. Bobo's girls are surely missing him terribly - continuing thoughts going out to them during these initial heartbreaking weeks as they rebuild and discover what life phase 2 is to be.

I just got the bad news a couple of days ago.

Just wanted to send my love and condolences to Bob's family.

The road truly does go on forever, my Brother, and I'm looking forward to meeting you someday.

Spoke to Denise (and Cami a little while too) tonight. They are just overwhelmed with the response that they've been receiving from so many of the fine folks here. Denise just didn't have the words.

She said it's been so much more support, emotional and otherwise, than they have received from Bob's sisters.

Well, we're Bob's family too. It makes me feel incredibly good to know that so many are stepping up to help out Bob's gals. Makes me proud to have you as my friends and family too.

Thanks for sharing that, Coot. Both Denise and Cami have been in my thoughts for a long time but especially in these past weeks. I was happy to see Cami's introduction on the GB - hope she feels free to continue posting. I like the way Lana put it - we're her virtual Aunties and Uncles.

There is so much venom and animosity getting stirred up around this site these days, and so much of it seems very self-serving. I really miss Bobo.
