Go Bob GO!!I'd love to be with you physically and experience the cross country trip!! But in my heart and in my spirit I'll be with you every day!! Though I'll be reading this blog I'll be right along side of you with a big smile on!!God Bless you and watch over you!Dan
WOW, love the website. No doubt Eric would be, and is as all your children, proud of all your efforts. Pedal hard...pedal long...and pedal on. Public awareness about the devestation caused by drivers distracted by cell phone use is still far too low. Our thoughts are with you, Cyndi and Sheila
May God bless you and be with you on your journey. I just read about your sons death and got this link from Remember Alex Brown Foundation, I am sorry about your son and I wish you the best of luck on your trip! I will be following along the whole time :)
How exciting your journey begins to fulfill your dream of riding in honor of Eric. May you meet lots of people that share your passion of raising awareness of cell distracted driving. We'll be with you every day.....
Bob, we are with you in thought and prayer. Be strong, keep your goal in mind and enjoy the journey. We are all riding along beside you.The Gomez Family
Bless him, o Lord, in this journey he is about to undertake, in the honor of the most blessed mother and for the salvation of souls. May the holy angels be with him now and in his last journey to eternity.....You know we all love you very much and will miss you like crazy. God bless you on your journey. We'll see youb soon :}
Dr.Bob, Blessings to your during this journey in honor of Eric. My Love, Respect and support will be with you as you bring awareness to the evils of distracted driving. Prayers of healing during this cross country adventure! Be Safe!!! See you when you get home :)
Dr. Bob,May the Lord bless you and keep you;May his face shine upon you and give you peace.Don't pedal any faster than your guardian angel can fly!
Dr Bob,Sorry that it was your boy that got taken away by this arrogance. I see people weaving in their 3000 lb cars, and most often they are texting. This must be made a felony, with a first fine of > $2000. Condolences and hope you have a great trip.

You will be in my thoughts and prayers everyday! May God bless and protect you during your journey!May the road rise up to meet you.May the wind always be at your back.May the sun shine warm upon your face,and rains fall soft upon your fields.And until we meet again,May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
Know that each pedal stroke is bringing us closer to stopping distracted drivers from taking another life. Your son is definitely honored by your trip. Thank you for raising awareness! I'm with you in spirit!
I appreciate the positive impact you have had on my life and hope that your selfless efforts reach many and save many lives. Nancy B
