Bobby has been going through some rough times lately with his family. Namely, that his father was in the hospital completely unexpectedly over the past few days, and more recently, his father had passed away a few hours ago, today, June 7th. As someone who went through something like this quite unexpectedly about three years ago, my heart, tears, and well-wishes go out to you; I am sorry for your loss. It may be a difficult time; grieve, certainly, as well you should; we all need help at times like this, we are here for you, and should be able to provide it in various messages below. Not sure I have the right words here but know we care.

Thank you to all of the amazing members, staffers, and alumni, for nearly eight great years...
Bobby, I know we don't know each other that well, but as one who very much enjoys your detailed episode recaps and your clever hosting of games in Stage 11 3/4, I consider you to be an important person in my life so hearing of your loss causes me to grieve with you. Praying for you and your family.
Hope you can finish the rest of the week's recaps.
Family first, recaps later.
Guys, let's give Bobby his space and not harass him for recaps. I admit to being guilty of this to an extent, but I also had no clue what was going on...now that I know, I'm laying off. Bobby, take as much time as you need.
Sorry for your loss. My condolences to you and your family.

My dad's constantly being in the hospital is why I have so many placeholders dating back to April. I kept having to take him to the hospital, or get him back out of it. And since I had so many backlogged, it was impossible to catch up while I was still having to type a new one every day. And the fact that I kept working until 8 most nights didn't help either.
Thanks for all your condolences. I have no shortage of people helping me feel better, and I appreciate every single one of you taking the time to do so.

I will start off by saying that I haven't posted here in a long, long time, primarily because I haven't watched Wheel since at least Season 32, although I still lurk on here occasionally and often think about the people that are regulars here. But on to it...
I am so sorry for your loss, Bobby. I have thought about you a lot during my absence here, and would like to express my deepest condolences to you and your family. I pray that you will get through this tragic time. I've long appreciated your work here and elsewhere on the internet, but I'm sure you'll take the time to mourn your loss. We all care about you.

My condolences as well, Bobby.
Based on your posts, you two seem to have been close. As someone who lost his own father six years ago (although we rarely talked during his last few years), I know how it feels to see someone you love just...
(I'm not sure if I want to finish that sentence; to be honest, I'm not sure how I could.)

I actually wasn't that close to him since he lived over 4 hours away and was busy with his trucking job, which he retired from a few years ago due to a shoulder injury. After that he bounced from house to house, so I only ever got to call him now and then. He showed up in my driveway on July 4, 2014 because he missed being up north. We still weren't too close even then, but I'd do things with him because it was what he wanted. We'd go out to eat, go to Goodwill, or he'd drive me to work. But he spent most of 2016 going in and out of the hospital.
