It's odd to mourn someone you have never met, yet felt so tremendously influenced by their words. I am still in disbelief a week later at Mr Conroy's passing. I wish this world had gotten to keep him longer. We were blessed to have such a literary hero. Prayers to his family, friends & fans.

The words in his books sang to me. I mourn the passing of a great, and one of my favorite, authors. My sincere condolences to his family and close friends, and my deepest appreciation to them also, for fostering/supporting/nurturing him through his literary endeavors.

As a basketball teammate at Blessed Sacrament in Alexandria Va in the late 1950's. I followed you through all of your writing. As a former Marine I knew characters like Santini first hand. As a southern I felt a kinship with the folks you wrote about. It is beyond sad to realize there are no new stories that you will tell. It is hard to express how the passing of someone I hadn't seen since 8th grade has hit me. Thank you for all you did.

Your books made my AP English students lovers of language and fictional people for over thirty years after The Water is Wide. May the peace which you always sought be yours forevermore. You have left your mark on this age and will perhaps like Faulkner will speak to future generations too about a lifestyle they will otherwise not know..

Pat and Cassandra, since moving away from Charleston back to New Jersey I've stayed in touch by watching the news and of course reading all of your books over and over. Today was a rough day for me and of course for you Cassandra. I love reading the fans comments because that shows the love that Pat shared with his fans family in the world. So many stories so many laughs so many tears thank you.

Pat you will be so deeply missed. Your books united us as a people. One of my favorite memories was reading The Water is Wide with my 18 year old son a few summers ago. We took turns reading it out loud to each other. You became a common author for us. My daughter was already a fan. I will bring them to Beaufort soon so they can see the beauty you wrote about. I know there will be a marsh in heaven...enjoy!

Thank you for sharing your blood and guts with all of us. I will miss you, your words, your strength, your wisdom. Your books have taught me, touched me, and inspired me, especially Beach Music. RIP...I hope you now find peace, Dear Pat.

Dear Pat, I am so grateful for your books and interviews over the many years. As a former Marine, I knew several Santinis. Your heartfelt sharing of family and place (South Carolina) always made grabbing your latest book a must! Rest well...I hope your are swapping stories with Lt. Col. Courvoisie ("The Boo") and you know how much you have meant and continue to mean to so many people. Thank You seems so inadequate...

I work in a bookstore here in Mt. Pleasant & Sunday morning, such a tribute to Mr. Conroy - throngs of people scoured our shelves & lined up to order his books. I venture to say that 80% of those buying Pat's books told me they already owned ALL of them, but needed to pay their respects, to connect & hear him again, to celebrate his life in the 'church of his words, a bookstore'. You've left too soon & there's a palpable loneliness, but your words will always remind us we have a friend close by - Godspeed Prince.

I read Pat Conroy's novels when I was deployed to Iraq. After I read Great Santini I knew that I was not the only one who had a love hate relationship with my dad. His other books and speeches helped me repaired my relationship with my dad. I love every book he wrote. I take annual trips to Beaufort, Charleston, and other areas that he wrote in his book, just to see the beauty of the land that was so well captured in his prose. I will truly miss a great writer and a great inspiration to American literature.
