Dear Anthony,
Upon surviving a severe heart attack and coming out of a coma, I binged on your show " Parts Unknown". In doing so, I traveled the world with you, discovering the richness of many countries and their respective cultures. I was able to see the bonds and commonality we all share. Moreover, it was clear that life through out the world is about the richness of time spent connecting with others and sharing culture through food, laughter and kindness.

Dear Anthony,I was so saddened to learn that
you left us. We never understood what you might have been going through. Your wit, good looks, sarcasm, knowledge, need for adventure-I thought you had it all. I will never forget what you brought to all of us that viewed your show. You took us around the world with you, my friend. May you have peace at last!

You were a wondrous story teller and your gift for recognizing what is insane in our world is unmatched. There will never be anyone quite like you again.
