You just can't be gone yet. You promised us another book. We need another book Mr Conroy.

I have lost a close friend, whom I only met twice, at speeches. However, I got to visit with you every time you wrote a book. My prayers with Cassandra and your family.

I am in tears, going on hours now. His passing finds me mourning on a (oddly?) deeply personal level. The only comfort I hope to find is read, again, his powerfully moving stories of our ever-connected lives and the way we love one another. Mr.Conroy's writing gifted me a deeper understanding of people, the motivations and mysteries of our souls, and will continue to do so for all the rest of my reading days and nights. He was an enormously talented wordsmith. I believe the best of his time and through his profoundly compassionate being represented the best of and highest in all of us. His words much like a memory you didn't know you held, always to, and always for, the heart of the matter.

Truly at loss

And those of us who live to paint,
Envision our own end,
Since, as he leaves, his words leave, too.
They scuttle down the drain.
The evening news fades with the breeze.
The sun sets, half past noon.
Our country’s pride, the bard of tunes
His fallen like a leaf
And those of us from feuding clans
Know Patrick Conroy’s grief.
He goes to join the heaven-sent,
The Burnses and the Scotts,
And no one else will ever write
What Conroy’s hand has wrought.

Let bagpipes ring, since Pat has passed.
Santini now can see
The prodigal come walking home.
The poet’s soul is free. He lays himself amongst the best,
An artist through and through.
And no one else can meet his mark.
There’s nothing left to do
But beat the drum that marks our time
Till we’re with Conroy, too. The kids have lost the hero’s voice. Survivors lose a friend.
(This continues in anothe post.)

Pat, I read many of your books as a teenager, and had just started to re-read and devour all of your works again in preparation for an upcoming trip to Charleston. I've been looking forward to seeing the south as you've told it in stories. 15 years later, your books still entrance and amaze me. You're a stunning storyteller and I'm thrilled to've had a chance to be a fan of yours. Deepest condolences to your friends and family. You will be missed, but your stories will live on. To me, an entire region of this country will be artfully colored by your experiences, and my visit will be nothing if not a tour of Conroy's Carolina. Thank you for your stories and your bitter honesty. So sad I will not get to one day shake your hand.

Pat's battle with cancer has ended. I sit here with tears streaming down my face. I am so grateful that I made the trip to Beaufort for his 70th birthday celebration. He was so affable and gracious to everyone. It was so uplifting to be surrounded by readers who love his books as much as I do. I know we are all feeling totally bereft. Thank you, Pat, for who you were and for your willingness to share so eloquently all aspects of the human experience.
