Always connecting with anyone--rich or poor. This was you at your best. Your comedic approach, your kindness to strangers, your love of what you were doing. Priceless.

I am deeply saddened by the death of Mr. Bourdain and even more that it was from his own hands.
As a professional chef, I don't know of any friend and/or colleague that were not fans of Mr. Bourdain. He felt like kin to us. I wish he had known how many he had touched.

My most sincere sympathy for his family and friends.
