Maybe a day late, but never a dollar short in having you in my thoughts, Bob. I didn't actually forget your birthday yesterday, but I just didn't find time to reach out with my wishes. Know that you are missed today, more than ever. I see you in your artwork daily at home, and also in each visit to Eberly. Tommy Maitland and I toast you often when there as well. Lots of love to you. Happy #49!
Feel free to share your thoughts.
Happy #47, Brother. You're always with me, wherever I go. You're missed greatly, but I know you're always near. Love you.
Happy Birthday Brother - Always in my thoughts!
Happy #45. What makes me really happy is fully knowing you're flying with the angels up above. Forever, Brother.
Happy #44, Bob. You're loved and missed, today, more than ever. Just so you know, MIND BODY + SOUL shines brightly at SAY OM YOGA, and greets everyone as they enter the space. It's a perfect fit, and lets me know that you are always watching (and smiling) over me every day that I look up on the wall. Lots and lots of love from me to you.
Jeannie,Tommy, and Eddy...My thoughts and prayers continue with each of you.
Thinking of you today, Bob, on #43.
While driving around in Scottsdale with Caitlin today, I fully began to realize how much of an amazing and prolific influence you have been on my life. Sure you were always there when we were growing up, but more recently, you've been a huge influence on a different direction I've chosen to go in.
Thank you for just being you. I wouldn't ever change anything about you, or our friendship. I love you for who you are, and for who you will always be.
I understand this work Bobby did before his passing was one of his last. He was commissioned by my bride-to-be, Gail Cutter, and the astonishing beauty is there for all to see. Gail and I were married on July 11, 2004 and she gave this to me as my wedding gift. It has remained the centerpiece of our home (s) and I deeply hope Bobby experienced the enjoyment of making it as we do admiring it. Every day. Forever. Well...can't seem to upload to pic but it's the first one at the top of the "Remembering" page. Kirsten...I hope you read this...you were such a gracious host selling Bobby's wares and Gail is most grateful to you. We're in NC now: firstname.lastname@example.org Please drop us a line if you'd like. And Bobby, eternally, thank you.
i think of you almost everyday bobby. a diiferent thing that we both experienced. right now i am remembering the time that we were walking around your neighborhood, it was quite late. we were walking by the boys club and just out of curiosity went to see if the door we were passing was unlocked. it was! so we welcomed ourselves through the threshold of the establishment and hit the basketball court! after a bit of air hockey we played a little one-on-one warball and ended it all with a round on the trampoline. i am so glad that i have these memories. i miss you so very much bobby.

Thinking of you today, my Brother. Thanks for your inspiration - in art, music, and also in life.
I love and miss you much.
A little Detroit Rock City to get your birthday off to a great start:
"Get up - Everybody's gonna move their feet
Get up - Everybody's gonna leave their seat
You gotta lose your mind in Detroit Rock City"
Happy 42, Bob. Know that you are truly loved and missed right this very moment - Thursday, January 27th, 2011; 9:08am - more than ever.
Bygones, Bobby. Wish we ha taken the time to actually get to know each other on less hostile terms.
Bobby, My 13 year old son found my old Zonkd NY shirt in my memory box this weekend. The night that we thought that up could make a movie. I miss you and really enjoyed telling him about you. One of my biggest regrets is that we didn't get to reconnect. Those years in New York are priceless to me. THank you for being such a big part of it.
Happy #41, Bob.
For most of today, however, I have reflected upon my 21st birthday - when I came to see you in New York for the very first time.
You met me at the Paramount, and proceeded to take me upon this great adventure. Among my favorite stops that evening included the Flamingo East and McSorley's. There was no such thing as a line, or a wait anywhere - everyone knew you, and greeted you with a smile.
It's been 5 years, Bob, and I miss and love you today more than ever.
This is the month of your birthday dear friend. Thank you again for the memories that I hold closer and closer with each thought. There are moments I can feel you next to me reviewing our teens. Do you remember sitting on the fire escape @ lubbock high and "getting into character" for "indian wants the bronx"? when I think of you it also takes me to a time when everything was not so fast. Every minute seemed like an hour. You and your family had a great impact on my life. Thank you for including me as a friend and always know that I carry a part of you right in the middle of my heart. I love you and I miss you bobby!
My wife Holly bought this in Wimberley and she loves it today just as much as she did when she first purchased it.
Another year has gone by and you continue to be in my thoughts. This is your birthday month and it's hard to forget because you and John were born in this month. I still think of your sweetness, sense of humor, "hyperactiveness" and just your wonderful friendship that we had through school and post. I miss you Bobby.
Just had to let you know you were in my thoughts, as you often are. No doubt that the holidays are a bittersweet time for your family and friends, but you touched so many people's lives and you live on in our fond memories. Happy New Year, Bobby.
Bobby was different. His focus and passion and drive were incredible. He was one of the most passionate and compelling people I have know. I believe that he would have been a huge success in the Austin we are living in today. I still think of him often and wish he was with us. That persuasive smile, I loved!
