He was a great writer and a great person. Now I'll start with his latest and read them in reverse chronological order. Go well into that happy light. Herman P. Sandford
He will be missed. My condolences to the family. May Gods promise bring peace to your heart. John 5:28
Its so unfortunate when we loose someone if Mr. Leonard's caliber that's why we have the hope if seeing our loved Ones Again
I'll bet Raymond Chandler met Mr. Leonard at the gate and said to him, "I'm your biggest fan." Elmore was one of the best!
You made me smile. Your words will be missed. Thank you.
I can't imagine my future reading pleasure without a new Elmore Leonard novel.
Sam Joseph, Staff and Kids of Covenant House Michigan send our condolences to the family and friends of Elmore Leonard. He helped the homeless and at-risk youth at Covenant House Michigan and he will be missed. Our prayers are with you during this difficult time.
Obedient humans will soon receive the full benefit of Jesus' ransom sacrifice.
This will occur under the rule of the Kingdom for which the upright have long prayed, saying:
“Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified. Let your kingdom come.
Let your will take place, as in heaven, also upon earth.” (Matthew 6:9, 10)
Thanks for your effort. You captured Midwest cops and robbers honestly.
My sincere condolences to the Leonard family. God cares and will comfort those who mourn. 1 Pe. 5:7
May the God of all comfort be with you.
The lost of someone we truly love is hard to handle for many, however it should be comforting to know that we can hope to see them again here on Earth without the problems we face in life today along with its illnesses...
Deepest sympathy to the Leonard family.
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
Continue to comfort each other in this difficult time. God gives us the hope of everlasting life through his life giving son Jesus Christ. John 17:2
You will NEVER be forgotten.

Dutch - thanks for the beautiful letter you just wrote to me about knowing my parents @ U of D in Detroit. I will always treasure your words. Please give my love to them when you see them in heaven.
Oh, Mr. Leonard- from the wild west to the wild crime world, the places that you have taken me. The journeys that we have shared.
I am glad that some of the directors finally got it right in putting your books on to the big screen, but in that screen in my mind- yu were always great.

When a writer goes there is no replacement. There is no one else who can write those stories.
We will see him again. John 5:28
It was sad to lose such an interesting and never middle of the road author, who entertained us with interesting stories and characters. I think Elmore would appreciate Benjamin Franklin's epitaph, since he was a writer too, it goes...
"The body of B. Franklin, Printer (writer too) (Like the Cover of an Old Book
Its Contents torn Out
And Stript of its Lettering and Gilding)
Lies Here, Food for Worms.
But the Work shall not be Lost:
For it will (as he Believ'd) Appear once More
In a New and More Elegant Edition
Revised and Corrected
By the Author.
I put in writer, because Benjamin Franklin was a writer, and I think everybody knows this, by Benjamin Franklin referring, "By the Author," he was referring to God. So since Elmore Leonard was a writer, I thought this might be apropos, if not, my apologies, but I did and still like Elmore's books, and I hope people will treasure them too.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
You will be missed, but your books will be with us. Rest well with God.
Now what do I do when I can't get to sleep at night? Darnnit!
I'm sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in the God of peace. John 3:16
you were with little doubt one of the better authors that I have had the pleasure of reading.thank you for being "cool"
I loved everything he wrote and will miss him so much.
