And I am in shock and devastated.

 

 

 

THERE IS A PARTY AT THE BRIDGE TONIGHT

 

Bob it seems that you knew they needed you,

So you slipped off quietly to see your crew,

You were greeted by needle nose gooses and wagging tails,

All the boys were there, and of course the gals,

They met you then they danced, there were lots of roos,

They knew you came to take care of all the broods

All the ones at the bridge that never knew a home,

Saw your eyes and thought, no we’re not alone,

This is Bob, the one they told us of,

The gentle man, so full of love,

Play gently with our angels my friend

Take care of our babies till we all meet again.

 

Dedicated to Bob Varnberg, of Greyhound Adoptions of Florida, a dear friend to and lover of the greyhounds

I understand Pat. Words cannot begin to express the shock and heart ache.

 

However, I'm certain there was a joyous reunion with a number of hounds today.

Bob Varnberg passed away (Greyhound Adoptions of Florida) during the night. Mariyln is doing as well as can be expected. There are people with her so she has help right now. When I asked her what could anyone do she replied: go adopt a greyhound! and help GAF continue to do the work. Finding homes for greyhounds was Bob's passion.

 

There will be no funeral and please do not send flowers (Bob's request--he didn't want any when he went). At some point, there will be a memorial service.

 

I can only imagine that Bob was mobbed when he reached the bridge.

 

Farewell my friend....till we meet again :cry1

go adopt a greyhound! I can so hear Marilyn say this. I can't believe this. :cry1 Laura and I spent most of the day with Bob and Marilyn only 2 1/2 weeks ago.

 

Godspeed Bob you will always be with us.
