How hard is to understand this brilliant brain is gone. The only hope we have is the promise from our God Jehovah, we will see him again in the day of the resurrection. Tony, we will see you again.

Anthony Bourdain was looked forward to weekly as a welcome guest in our home. His approach to travel and food was epic. When CNN stops showing Parts Unknown, we will truly understand that Anthony is gone. In the meantime we will continue to travel and learn with and from Tony.

Mr Bourdain was a joy to watch. Not only did he show us food of the world but people too. He taught me a lot about the joys of this world, the people, the places and the incredible joyous food!!!! You even came to a city near me, Seattle Washington. The music from that episode will forever haunt me. He also taught me to appreciate things that I never would have. He was a teacher, for sure. Thank you Anthony

Finding it very difficult to watch Parts Unknown although I love it without you, I spend most of my Sunday nights compelled to it. I am also a Chef and although Canadian, am truly in debt for your knowledge, I look forward to reading your biography and always research your valuable cookbook. You meant a lot to us Chef's and will be remembered well.

I have not met Mr. Bourdain, yet he was always welcomed in my home. From No Reservations to Parts Unknown, I was glued to my chair eating P&J sandwich's with string cheese imagining I was there with him eating. You'll be greatly missed. Rest In Peace Mr. Bourdain...

I have always enjoyed his show, am watching reruns now, waiting to see the final episodes. Anthony was my escape to other travel to other countries, cultures, people and food. It made my heart and soul happy to spend my evenings watching him. I am saddened that he hid his despair, and left too soon.
