I loved Pat Conroy. I was so lucky to be a tiny part of his life. He came to the book festival every year in Columbia SC and I always was blessed to work with him. He was the most humble and sweetest man I ever work with. His family were always there to share wonderful and funny stories of their lives growing up together. I consider him part of my Military family because he went to The Citadel with my brother-in-law.My Marine also attended the Citadel. RIP PAT CONROY. Your personal stories will be missed.

I have always and will continue to give copies of Beach Music to people to enjoy such an incredible tale - My all-time favorite book. My thoughts go out to the family - I just found out this morning and was both immediately startled and saddened by Pat's passing. His books meant a lot to me, it also made my father's life make sense as his father was so like Santini... he and Pat would have had a lot to chat about..... I am going to go reflect and wrap my head around the fact that there will not be another book coming..... I am very sad.

Mr. Conroy & family, my heart is bit broken, yet still remains full with your amazing tales. You, Mr. Conroy, gave me reading. Despite being considered 'very smart,' I was in my mid 20's and had managed to read only 1 book cover to cover (Little House in the Big Woods) thanks to an unconquered ADD attention span. Despite this, I wanted to love reading, just couldn't figure out how. One evening during an outing to a local bookstore with friends where we would spend hours, I stumbled across a book that caught my attention for no apparent reason. I couldn't put it down. My 'reading-block' was conquered, reading was now my passion. Sherman may have given Savannah to a love, but Pat Conroy, gave me reading. There are no words that can thank you enough for this wonderful gift.

Surely the Low Country skies must have wept Friday at the tremendous loss of this poet, this sculptor of words, this architect of language. You offered the world a remarkable gift as you chronicled your own exploration of familial devastation and your journey towards repair, towards rebuilding. As a fellow Southerner-by-Choice, I have found profound comfort and inspiration in the images you have painted with your lyricism of our beleaguered and beautiful southland. As a fellow child of Santini, I am deeply moved by your courage and undaunting commitment to blazing your own fiery trail towards peace. Pat, you have given me a multitude of reminders of the ways that nature offers us a healing balm. I am forever grateful to the universe for the gift of your soul.

As a fellow Beaufortonian and Citadel graduate, I fell in love with your books after reading The Lords of Discipline during my knob year. (It was a Christmas present - how fitting.) Thanks for sharing your beautiful prose, which will be a lasting tribute to your talents. Rest in Peace, Pat Conroy, our Lowcountry Prince of Tides.

When I read the post of Pat's illness, I wrote to him, to encourage him and tell him what a wonderful lowcountry world he had opened for me. I know now, it was probably too late, but I hope that letter will give comfort to those who loved him, and let them know that in a major way, he played a part in my art success. I fell in love with Charleston and the lowcountry through his expressive words of its beauty. Blessings, my friend, and may God bless your family. We will go on, but it will be a sadder journey without your words of wonder, your smile and everything that made you the master you were. Love to your family... how blessed you were.

Mr. Conroy, you were and will continue to be a tonic, a sustaining force, and watering hole for me. I will re-read your books, probably starting next week. You have helped become more fully human, a better man, husband, father, friend, lover of words and stories, and psychologist. As one of your favorite writer/ mentor might have said, “Look homeward Angel.” I will look upwards to you.

I read my first book, Lords of Discipline shortly after finishing college while living in Columbia, SC. His words deepened my love for the low country and brought dysfunctional familial relationships to the surface. He made us understand that every person, no matter their situations, seeks the love and approval of their parents. He valued loyalty, and put people over politics. He stood up for all that was good. His writing awakened all five senses like no other author I have read could do. I had not read 'My Reading List' - so I downloaded the audible version yesterday. As it began, I realized I was listening to Mr. Conroy himself. Thank you for sharing with us. Thank you for making words come to life. You have influenced many and your legacy will live on. You will be missed.
