Miss you brother. Your daughter seems to have something special, and said that even after your passing she feels your love come into her. You did it right my friend.

Coot, congrats on 40,000, just wondering when you are going to finally post something funny!

Thinking of Bobo, I felt good sending Denise and Cami what I could, no such thing as a selfless act.

Cami does seem like a lovely young lady, you did good Bobo!

I posted this last evening in Anything Goes and on the guestbook but wanted everyone to see it.


I spoke with Denise O'Brien earlier tonight and she asked me to post this for her.

She is just totally overwhelmed with the outpouring of support that both she and Cami have received from so many kind people here. She just couldn't believe that so many people who didn't even know her, or their daughter Cami, would step forward to help them out.

I explained to her that had the same thing happened to any of us, Bob would have been first in line to help in any way that he could.

As you might imagine, it has been a very stressful time for Bob's girls. Denise said she wanted some time to clear her thoughts and to decide how to proceed. She has just now begun responding with personal notes to those who have helped and have shown their support and generosity. She intends on responding to everyone that has so kindly helped them. That will take some time.

So, she wanted me to let everyone know how very deeply she has been touched by this family that would step forward to help her family. She is truly and sincerely amazed by the response of so many wonderful souls that make up this family.

I am so very proud of each and every person that has helped in any way. It makes me proud to call you my friends.

Bob was one of the most truly amazing persons that I have ever met, or, will ever meet. I think of him each and every day. I truly believe that he is aware of what this family has done for his.

Our lives are connected in so many ways, from and toward so many directions, on so many different levels, that we can never see where it all leads. And now it seems Cami is becoming a part of this family, as we became part of hers. Thanks for the opportunity brother. Thinking of you and your girls this weekend.

Glad to hear Denise is trying to take the time to think things through. I hope we bought her a little time to be able to do just that...


Love to Bobo's ladies.

I never knew the man and interacted with him but a few times here, which by the way, were quite humorous yet, I think of him now and again. Isn't that odd that I didn't know the man, "talked" with him briefly and still, he enters my thoughts for some reason.

Makes me wonder......

Was finally able to send a letter to your family today brother. It's been really hard for me to do, like by doing that it makes it all real, that you are really gone. Posting some to Cami seemed to get me over the hump to get this done. She posted a picture of her "boyfriend" today, got the instructions on how to do it from Sang, of all people. Maybe all of us together can make a piece of Bob the dad for her. I hope so. Miss you brother.

Couldn't have this on Page 5 now could we?

Had a nice, long chat with Denise last night. Bob's girls are holding up pretty well. Still have some rough days of course.

Sadly, Bob's remaining family, particularly a sister and brother-in-law are being nothing short of complete buttheads to Denise & Cami. I know all families are different, and not all siblings get along, but those two have taken it to another level.

Denise is still struggling with Bob's employer as far as insurance and IRA etc.

Just the kinds of aggravation no one needs on top of losing a spouse and father.

Denise mentioned again the unbelieveable support this family has shown her family.

She said she has trouble trying to navigate around this site and that she's not that computer savvy. I told her Bobo was in the same boat!

I miss my buddy.

We continue to hold Denise and Cami in our hearts and our prayers.

God Bless them.

It's sad sometimes how family dynamics changed after the passing of a loved one. Four years after my mom passed, I still wrestle with how my family dynamic has changed. As long as Denise and Cami hang together, they will be alright. God bless both of them.

I explained "BoboFest" to a Mule attendee last night.



He thinks we're "special".



I agree, but mainly Bobo was the special one.

Brother Bob is never far from my thoughts -- got the nicest card from Denise & Cami, & what a shame that such nice sincere people who have suffered this loss have to deal with some of the downsides -- but with that said -- lots of love to both the girls, we're here for you & I only wish we could do more!
...nice to see this thread bumped up --
I sure would like to have met Bobo, he seemed like a really cool guy
