We'll always take a walk in Sir Bobby's wonderland
And so the tearful images of Sir Bobby taking his hat off to the thousands of football fans and players alike will be the last we'll ever see of one of the greatest ever icons of the game he made so beautiful.
A man who saved Newcastle United from plunging into the abyss, a man who transformed Ipswich Town from a small team to European kings, a man who rubber stamped his own Geordie charm on continental giants like Barcelona, Porto and PSV - and most notably a man who reunited the nation during Italia 90 with England.
Already tributes have been flooding in for Sir Bobby and it was hard not prevent tears rolling down the face on Sunday night as he was wheeled into St James's Park for one final time.
Many will say that Newcastle United's current state paled into insignifiance when the sad news filtered through this morning.
However, Sir Bobby right to the last moments of his life made his deep concerns about his football club crystal clear.
But his bravery was something that will live with everybody until the last.
Just a few weeks ago he could have taken it easy but instead flew over to Portugal to raise vital funds for charity.
A true measure of the man and his courage to make it for Sunday's game was never going to be in doubt.
He wouldn't have missed it for the world.
Sir Bobby the battler, Sir Bobby the manager, Sir Bobby the gentleman, Sir Bobby the Newcastle United icon, Sir Bobby the legend - and one that will never be forgotten on the streets of Tyneside by the people who loved him so much.
