It is extremely rare to find such a friend in this or any other lifetime.

@jespah,
That's right, there is no past tense for love, is there.
Rest in love, Bob.

I felt a hell of a kinship with dys. I was waiting for him to come and visit me in Florida. Now I'll stop waiting.

Diane,

I am deeply sorry. Bob is one-of-a-kind. I hope you find comfort thru your friends and family. (Of course, almost all A2Kers are part of your friends and family.)

I am sorry for hanging around Chicago all the time. I should have visited you and Bob in Albuquerque.

Affectionately,
John Wandel

You can know it's coming and know it's coming--and it's still a shock.

You and Bob are both in my heart and in my thoughts.

I did not have very many conversations with the dearly departed, but I did have the sense that he was a man who cut his own path, which I deeply respect.

@Diane,
I'm, we are glad that we had visited both of just a couple of days ago.

And I'm glad that I could inform Bob during the last couple of days how we liked his tour plans he made for us.

I was looking forward and expecting to see him again in September.

It's a great shock now for both of us.

Our sincerest condolences, Diane.

Oh Diane...I was so hoping he had some real quality time to come.

It's hard to believe how unbelievable something you know is happening is when it happens.

Thinking of you so much.....and Fred, Dante and Sally.

@Walter Hinteler,
I've made some photos last week.
I won't post them before I'll be home in mid-June.

I can't.

Memories - a quick recent one. Walter and Ulla and Diane and Bob and I went to the getting to be a2k famous Flying Star Cafe last week. Somehow we started talking about coffee and us three women mentioned the tiny coffee bar we had gone to on a visit to Santa Fe the day before. I said it was called Holy Spirit Espresso.. and Bob said "I've been to that place" and that he really liked it. I think Walter had been there too, on one of his earlier trips here. So, a group coffee dynamic. That was a fine visit to the Flying Star.

Here's a photo from perhaps 2006 of Bob and Diane at the Route 66 Diner:

@Diane,
Oh goodness. I'm so sorry, Diane.

I'm glad he shared with us what he was going through and that we had some warning.

Still, I didn't think death was so imminent.

Big and gentle hugs for you.

Thank you for telling us. I look forward to your stories.

Yeah, he was after me good that night (and vice versa) and in this photo he was really getting into it, wasn't he Osso? He dished and he could take. That's one of the things I really liked about him. And he was loyal. I am finding it hard to believe we're never going to get his take on things here anymore. I miss him already. I'm going to miss him for a long time. I can only imagine how Diane feels right now.
