    To the family, your Bobby facilitated the higher stage of living, which is not simply to exist, but to engage, and to engage life is to express a desire to love what it is in it. Bobby facilitated love for millions upon millions who heard him speak life into us through lyric and sound. He was a blessing, but I’m sure especially to you. God bless you and God keep you all in his enduring memory. Love!

    My sincere condolences to Mr Caldwell’s family. His music has brought countless hours of joy to a young man finding his way in the world across the pond. I first discovered his songwriting through reading the liner notes to the albums Chicago 18 and Chicago 19. I then found his own discography and quickly learned he was a singer in the truest sense of the word – how could one man be so soulful and adept with pop/r’n’b, and yet also have the capacity to croon the American songbook so effortlessly? Personally, his Heart of Mine album will always remain a favourite – pure pop/ballad perfection. I actually bought a signed copy from his website that I will now treasure forever. Despite his passing, his music will continue to touch all of our lives for decades to come. RIP Mr Caldwell, from a British fan

    Bobby and I grew up in Miami playing music together. The first time I saw Bobby and his band play at the Miami Palmetto Jr High cafeteria I was knocked out. We became good friends, played in bands together and shared the same passion for music. Back then Bobby loved the Beatles and he would learn every part note for note on each new album that was released. Years later when I heard Bobby and his band Katmandu with Norman Harris and Bobby Jabo I was again floored by the sound. After Bobby returned to Miami from California we again worked together the the late 70’s in a band called Wolfgang. That is also when we started recording demos for his first album which included “What You Won’t Do For Love”. Bobby grew musically in leaps and bounds and expanded his writing and playing skills from Pop, Rock and R&B to Jazz, Blues and Great American Songbook styles. Now Bobby lives on in a huge body of work he has left us. His music is timeless and as long as people listen to his music Bobby will be immortal. Through over a dozen albums his sound is unmistakable. Every time I hear one of Bobby’s songs on the radio I recognize his voice immediately. He recorded and performed with some of the greatest singers and musicians and has had his music preformed and recorded by some of the greatest singers and musicians. Bobby was a unique talent and was not only one of the best musicians I have ever known but also an inspiration for me and generations to follow. I feel so lucky to have been his friend.

    Mary, my heart breaks for you and your entire family! I was first introduced to Bobby’s beautiful music by my husband Bob Margolis! I immediately fell in love with his voice and music.

    I went to first concert with Bob and his brother Don at the college in Centenary. He was magic on that stage.

    I saw him many more times in New Hope with Don and met you as well! We could tell it was difficult performing, but he always gave it his all for his fans.

    I’m never going to forget any of those performances they hold a very special meaning for me. I understand the loss you and your family have now. He’s now healed and he’s in the band with all the other great’s having some spectacular jam sessions. You’re in my thought and prayers for comfort, peace and healing. God bless and comfort you all!

    Dear Bobby Caldwell,

    It is with deep sadness that I learned of your passing. As a 48-year-old Japanese woman, I first heard your music 30 years ago on a television commercial in Japan. I took note of your name in a corner of the screen, but I never got the chance to go to the CD shop to look for your music. I regret that missed opportunity. Last month, I finally found that song on YouTube. It was “Heart of Mine,” and I was so happy to have found it. I listened to it every day. I also found your Twitter account and followed you. When I learned from your family’s tweet that your health was not good, I worried about you. And now, I learn of your passing. I wish I had known about you earlier. I wish you could have come to Japan again.

    Your music has touched the hearts of many, and it will continue to do so. You will be missed dearly. May you rest in peace, Bobby Caldwell.
