The Allman Brothers Band

Newsletter – Bobo-gram 12/13/2007

Hey there sweet family,

The extended family of the Allman Brothers Band’s Peach Corps lost a dear brother with the passing of a wonderful man, Bob O’Brien (Bobo), Monday, Dec. 10. Bob shared his strength, friendship, amazing sense of humor, and taught everyone he touched in person and through about love, life and what’s truly important. The world is a better place for having had him here.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Bob’s wife and daughter, Denise and Cami, as his journey continues. Fly on, sweet brother.

Bob is being lovingly remembered at:

As friends 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. Do what you can. Bob gave so much of himself. It is our turn now. Send your donation directly to:

Denise O’Brien

Greensburg, PA 15601

Thank you in advance for your kindness.
