Re: Hobie Wilson

Thank you David for conveying this sad news.

Hobie was one of the greats of the Crosby firmanent.

I'm sure that all who had contact with Hobie or who had knowledge of his contributions to the Crosby legacy, will  wish to extend their sympathy to Cathie in her loss.

I have sent her a short note of condolence.

Re: Hobie Wilson

I talked to Cathie last night, and she was coping but felt overwhelmed at all of the outpouring for Hobie. Hobie is among the truly great Bing fans - many of them are sadly not with us any longer: Ken Twiss, Bill Osborn, Charlie Baille, Bob Lundberg, Derek Parkes, etc...
