Mitch Rapp is one of my favorite characters. An ardent fan from the start, I loved to watch his success flourish, like he was my kid brother. When Vince became ill, I prayed for him, thankful he could get the best treatment possible. When loss struck my own family, I couldn't read books anymore. Grief and stress makes it hard to concentrate. Time passed and I thought I'd try again with my old friend, Vince, only to find that Vince had passed on, too. My heart is saddened for his wife, family, friends and fans. Such a loss of not only a great writer, but a fine man and a true American. I pulled up American Assassin on my Kindle, a book I'd read before, and Vince took me on an adventure through Rapp's first year with Hurly. After 3 long and lonely years, my "reader's block" is over. A gift from God, a gift from an angel named Vince. You are blessed, you are missed.
Wow.....what a great story teller...and I am reading that the author Vince was a really good person never forgetting his family, his roots....you all were truly blessed to have him in your lives, and I just bet you all are probably really good folks as well....God blessed us with giving him writing talent. As a fellow Catholic, I am happy to hear that Vince remained so inspite of all the negativity surrounding the church
Seems like a great family man.I will remember him in his books.Regards to his family. Tony
Once I started reading Vince's books, I could not wait for the net one. He was truly a great man and.a great author! It's very sad that he passed away at such a young age! God bless his wife, kids and family!
HIS BOOKS GOT ME INTERESTED IN .READING FOR PLEASURE. Read his Rapp Series and really enjoyed reading I was so anxious to read his books I would order a book an read the on-line release because I could not wait to read the next story. He was great and I will forever be grateful to him for getting me seriously involved with reading
He is still missed. How lucky we were to have him in our lives through books !
god bless...from an avid fan
Sympathy to family and friends. A man of faith true to family friends country, and a man of honor. Thanks for the stories and the messages of duty honor courage sacrifice are of immeasurable lasting value. You are missed.
Please accept my apologies for the loss of your brother/cousin/best friend. May the holy spirit of our Heavenly Father, Jehovah, be with your family.
One year yesterday and I still can't accept it. A good man gone way too soon. Someday I hope God will show me why. I pray for healing for his wife and children.
Vince, i just newly discovered your mitch rap books and have given me hours of pure joy. On reading the acknowlegments of Last Man i was confused to see your talk of cancer and prayers. After research i was stunned and devastated to hear of your battle with cancer and how u fought fearlessly My heart goes out to lysa and the kids. You have made the world a better place. You are sorely missed
You were and remain an incredible find, an author whose great works in literature make you as legendary as any of the old masters - Michelangelo, Mozart, Bach. I was so shocked and beyond saddened to hear of your sudden passing. I knew your illness was of a serious sort, I lost an uncle to cancer of the pancreatic variety. I will definitely miss your excellence and distinctive voice inside my head. There's never a good time to lose a great author but I am certain in your captivating tales that you have set a high bar for the next generation to aspire to.
My favorite author. He is truly missed. I have every book he wrote and read them often..My condolences to his family. Jayne Claxton
Thank You Vince for the stories. You made life better and more entertaining for many people. You were a true patriot, father and husband. This country needs more people like you.
For Vince Flynn, thank you for your wonderful books. You and your family are in my prayers.
I just read this and am sobbing: I immediately began praying for Vince. I had no idea he was so unwell and having had someone close to me pass from cancer I know how hard he must have fought to survive. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you, his family and friends, all of whom must still be in such grief.
Even though he's gone, I said another prayer to thank Vince for his novels: I've been going through a challenging time recovering from a long illness and Vince's books have meant so much to me; they're the only books I've been reading. Tonight, I finished Executive Power and had been scouring my bookshelves for Memorial Day, I was checking the reading order and came across the news. I can't stop crying, please know how much his art meant to all of us. Especially me. I hope and pray that you are able to focus on the wonderful times you had with him and not the last, hard days. I'll keep him in my prayers.
I use to come back from dawn raids and patrols, and was great to just lie back in my dugout and read your books sometimes with my maglites right on through the night! They were good times! You will never know how much your books meant to me ..we surely have lost a great author and person .
To your family.
Dear Mrs. Flynn and family: As an avid reader I discovered Vince via my son Ben. From then on I was hooked. My beloved husband of 52 years died shortly after Vince's death and I miss them both for vastly different reasons. I wish for all of you God's healing touch and know that He is with you always as is Vince in each day of memories. Respectfully, Dr. Rita Neu
Embarrassed to admit discovering the very sad news only two days ago. Discovered his first book in 2006 at an airport. Was immediately hooked and couldn't wait to read them all. A tremendous character was created and will always be my favourite and on a selfish note can't comprehend there won't be additional ones published. I know it's belated but I want to send my sincere condolences to Vinces wife and children I really am deeply saddened for you all. Often thought would wright after reading each book thanking him for great entertainment but never did. Hope you receive and accept message in the vain it's meant.
Look after each other and please take care
Very best wishes
The light will never fade
Thank you God for the gift, of Vince Flynn to our world.
Now that Vince has gone Home, I'll just read them all over again. The stories and Mitch empower this old geezer; on the pages he'll live on. As well, Vince's spirit will live forever. Best storyteller ever.
I will miss you very much Vince. Your books were a never ending source of pleasure for me and to read each new Mitch Rapp novel was a pure delight.May you forever rest in peace.
Marv Margolis--Woodland Hills, calif.
You will be missed by many and I will miss reading about Mitch Rapp. I too have prostate cancer and hoped you would beat it and provide me with hope.
I just found out about Mr Flynn. I just returned from a Navy Deployment ( 9 Months out to sea) I wanted to know when his next book was coming out and it said Mr Flynn was when I saw was I and to see if i read right and I was . My fav Author is gone and along with him my Favorite CIA agent . My thoughts to his children and wife.
I went to Apple Valley Middle School with Vince. He was a popular kid and fun guy always down to earth. I later recall running into him in a pub in Minneapolis well before his
writing days. He always was genuine. My condolences to his wife Lysa and his children. He was truly one of a kind.
Just discovered this sad news. Condolences to the Flynn family. I have enjoyed the Mitch Rapp series immensely. A great loss. Rest in peace, Vince.
Miss you as a person will mis your novels ur a patriot
Just found out about you Vince, it just broke my heart. Bob and I are avid readers and loved your insight, and your courage. It will not be the same without you. Our thoughts and prayers to your lovely family. God blessed us with you.
Such a shock to hear about Vince,s passing.
I was waiting impatiently for his next book. He was my favorite author. His books will live on. I hope movies are in the future for them. May God bless his wife and children and his entire family. A devoted fan
My sincere condolences to the extended family. I travel around 50 miles each way to the office at least 4 days a week, and when listening to a Vince Flynn bokk on CD,(I re-visit each one about every 4 months) I often sit in my car to finish the current CD. By far, by far, the most dynamic character ever created is Mitch Rapp. I will miss Mr Flynn's tremendous talent.
I MISS YOU VINNIE. I THINK OF YOU OFTEN. LOOKING FORWARD TO THE LAST BOOK WITH A CO-AUTHOR. IT JUST WON'T BE THE SAME.
It seams, that to many times the most special must leave much to soon !
I just heard of Vince Flynn passing over into a place especially reserved for authors of fine novels. I have been a sincere fan for some years now. He is and was my favorite author and will remain in both my mind and heart until my passing, which cannot be much further down the trail, for I am 83 now. He made my life much richer. You have my condolences and I acknowledge that old adage, "Life is not fair!" This is merely another example. I feel as though I have lost a very good and close friend, until time passes for me, I will be re-reading those novels, for they merit it. Ron Hall
My favorite author of all time.By all accounts an even better man
Thank you Vince.
May God keep your soul and bless your family.
I heard it...I didn't believe it! The greatest author whose books I ever read.
My condolences to the entire Flynn family.
Requiescant in pace.
My family and I will miss his novels. We have read all his books. It is such a shock to lose him. You are in my daily prayers. Louise, Scituate, MA

This is truly a very, very sad moment. I didn't realize until today that Vince Flynn has passed away. He has passed away, yes but he will always be present regardless. Standing tall as the great man he was. I shall miss his outstanding novels about Mitch Rapp.
Vince Flynn, you and your family will always be in my thoughts and prayers henceforth and I wish to express my sincerest condolences to your wife Lysa, your children and your family. God bless you all.
I have followed all of Vince's books from the beginning and I can honestly say Christmas will never be the same without one of his books wrapped up under my Christmas tree. All my heart felt grief to you and your family, such a crying shame that a talent and such a nice person could be taken so early. All my prayers and heart felt sympathy to you and your whole family
My heart goes out to you Lysa and your family. I am a late follower to Vince's outstanding books with Mitch Rapp. I have read 8 of his 15 in the past 6 months. He will be missed. God Bless all of you.

Absolutely loved his writing. He was clever with details and a great story teller. I will miss reading the adventure of Mitch Rapp and will cherish all my books he had written. Gone too soon for us as readers, but more certainly, to his family.
I am so sorry to learn of the premature death of one of the best writers of my generation. Condolences to his wife, children, and family. I grieve the loss of such a talented and patriotic writer. My prayers go out to all of you.
Prayers for all his family...we both loved his novels..a great author...
Bud and Loretta Marcus
I treasure his books for the wonderful information he passes along about the world and my daughter-in-law Deeann loved his interviews so much. God bless him and be with his family. So sorry.
Thank you Vince. Your literary success is an inspiration. Mitch Rapp brought back my love for the genre. God bless you and your family.

My heart and my prayers go out to Mr. Flynn's family. He will be in my prayers in a very special way. Deacon Lee Levenson, Delray Beach, Florida
May God hold Vince's family especially close to His heart as they navigate this traumatic times. Vince was not only loved by his family and friends but also by the millions of readers who came to know him thru his work. You will be missed Vince, but I know you now have a glorified body and are twisting the arms of the angels for new tales to tell us on that day when all believers will gather together when the trumpet sounds~
My prayers are with the Flynn family now. Please let your faith guide you.
Mr. Flynn was one of my favorite authors and I mourn with you.
Thoughts and prayers for Mr. Flynn's family, friends, and to his literary followers. We will miss his wonderful novels.
It got to the point where I had to read the book as fast as possible to see how things were resolved; and to think he had to publish the first book himself! What resolve! and I am glad he did. So sad to have a life end so abruptly. He has left a fine legacy for his children. Best of all wishes to his wife and children. The world has lost a great entertaining author.
My thoughts and prayers are with his family. I always enjoyed reading Vince's novels.
It is with a heavy heart that I learned of the death of one of my favorite authors. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. Thank you for sharing him with the world. We will miss his stories.
I am so sorry that Vince has died. I loved reading each of his books. What a writer. I will keep him in my prayers. I pray that God will comfort you and give you the strength that you will need. God bless you and your family.
It is with a broken heart that my husband and I learned of the passing of Vince. I am 75 and my husband is 83 years of age. We always loved Vince's character of Mitch Rapp; we thought he was really Vince. He wrote about an American who never lost his moral compass and, for that, we are truly grateful to have shared a part of his life. May God take you into His prescence and keep you well, Vince.
Sad vince is gone . He gave us great novels. Thanks vince
you will be missed.
My greatest condolences to the family of Vince Flynn. May angels and the Lord hold them in the palm of their hands. May they 'feel' the love and devotion of Vince Flynn's followers and readers.
Vince was a man of strength and convictions. He overcame many adversities and shared his passion with those of his readers. Our lives have been blessed as a result of knowing him through his writings. He made me realize the many great freedoms I do have in this country, and the sacrifices required to keep them.
God bless all his family and friends.
Vince was a member of International Thriller Writers, as was I...readers are mourning his death across the world...besides being a successful author, he was a decent guy who did much to lend support to other writers.
As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.
Farewell to a wonderful writer.
We are so sorry to hear about your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Vince was een fantastisch schrijver. Z'n gesigneerde boeken die ik mocht ontvangen via Marla zijn voor mij een mooie herinnering aan Vince.
Frieda & Albert Aerts, Zolder Belgium.
Our thoughts are with his wife and kids.. My condolences go out to family and friends..
His writing is outstanding, and his character and convictions come through loud and clear. What strong man! What a loss to us all. May God bless and comfort his family and friends.
I didn't know Vince but feel like I lost a good friend. His books and Mr. Rapp have been company for me on many occasions and I wish all the best for his family.
Such sad news. Vince will certainly be missed in our family. He was truly our families favorite author. My husband died of prostate cancer in 2011. Vince's books gave him so much pleasure and shared conversations. I empathize with the family. I understand your journey. God bless.
The world has lost a great man and author. He will be missed. My condolonces go out the family.
I greatly enjoyed the books I have read by Vince and look forward to reading the rest. His passing is a great loss on so many levels. May God grant all who loved Vince his grace and consolation. "Let our faith be our consolation, and eternal life our hope."
A Fan an also 47....So young.
Our sincere condolences to the entire Flynn family. We have all lost a master writer and he will be greatly missed not only by those who knew him personally but by those who could hardly wait for his next book! My husband and I have been avid fans for years and are so saddened to learn of his passing. What a talent! May God Bless your entire family.
Vince is an amazing author and real American. I was very saddened to earn of his passing at such a young age. God bless him.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the family, I can not imagine loosing a loved one at such a young age. I have to share that during my battle with colon cancer I was introduced to the Mitch Rapp series and was an instant fan. I can only say thank you Vince for the wonderful stories that helped me pass the time during chemmo treatments. May God Bless your family during this difficult time
Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. May the God of all comfort be with you.
For a man who's life was "words"... now, words just aren't enough. God bless the entire Flynn family, I cannot imagine your loss as I feel so lost and I'm just a fan of his work. Thanks Vince for everything.
I wish Mr. Flynn was a founding father or a future candidate for president. I cried when I learned of your passing. Please say hello to John and Josh, they'll show you around. God bless.
I have read several of Vince's books and was in awe of his knowledge of war tactics. I was more impressed with his personal life and faith. I have recently lost a 8 year old grandson to heart failure and with his irish name Quinn I hope and pray Vince will look after him in heaven.
"The gifts that were given to us are physically no longer with us, but they will be in our minds and in our hearts and a part of who we are and what we do each and every day of our lives". So sorry for your loss...
To the Flynn family, our sincerest sympathy in your loss of your beloved Vincent. Gone too soon he fought courageously his prostate cancer which we also are finding our family on the same journey. His work is enjoyed by my husband also. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers asking God to comfort you always.
I'm so sadden of the news of Vince I just received a email 5/22/13 and was looking forward to his new book. My sympathy to his family he was your hero as well as mine.
To the entire Flynn family...May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow. I remember playing baseball with Vince in VAA and spending nights at each others houses. A wonderful, caring person. Am a big fan of all his writings and loved to listen to his interviews as I agree with every single thing he had to say. RIP bro.

I pray for the Flyn family I always enjoyed talking to Kelly and Shelia at Lisa's salon. Vince was always my favorite author and I will miss reading his books. I feel such a great loss.He gave me many hours to escape my daughters long hospital stays and doctors. God bless
I was deeply saddened when I heard the news about Vince. He was such a wonderful writer, but more than that I was so impressed by his strong faith.I send my prayers to his family ,who must be devastated by his death. I never met him, but I loved him and will miss his writings. God be with you Vince.
I pray for the Flyn family I always enjoyed talking to Kelly and Shelia at Lisa's salon. Vince was always my favorite author and I will miss reading his books. I feel such a great loss. God bless, Susan Falcone Apple Valley
Vince, I want to thank you for writing and sharing your considerable talent. I stumbled upon the Last Man just a few months ago and have been enjoying your writing immensely. I was shocked to find you had left us and wanted to thank you for hours of book reading joy. God bless.
Like most of us, I never had the chance to meet Vince, yet of course I knew him. I stopped reading due to poor eyes years ago, then started up again maybe seven years ago. One of the first books was "Term Limits". Needless to say I was hooked. Ironically, I'm in the middle of "The last man". My deepest sympathies to the Flynn family. Somehow I always felt a connection to Vince, and didn't know how or why. Last year I contacted an old friend/coworker who I hadn't talked to in years. I remember back in the day he would mention a "Flynny". That happened to be Vince's older brother Pat. They say it's a small world, I totally believe that. RIP Vince.
So talented and so young! I am so sorry for the loss. My sympathy to the Flynn family! He gave so much plesure to so many! He will be missed!
I've read all of Vince's books, and heard his interviews, and I feel an acute loss. I can't even imagine what his family and friends feel. I will pray for all of you. Please know he made a difference in this world and will never be forgotten.
My sincerest condolences to your family. I didn't know Vince, but my sister did during his bar tending days and couldn't say enough good things about him. His books were the reason I took up reading for pleasure as an adult, and I read the first 10 in two years. I couldn't put them down. I also appreciate all Vince did for the military as one of my sons is a Marine, and his generousity didn't go un-noticed. Thank you for sharing him with the world.
Two things about Vince stand out to me and are legitimately both inspirational and genuinely Christian. He was unswerving in purpose and remained a humble guy despite his overwhelming success. I will always aspire to these things and remember Vince's life as an example that they are attainable.
I am so sorry to hear about your loss. May God be with to give your family hop and comfort in this time grief.
Heartfelt prayers to the entire Flynn family. Role models are far and few between in today's world, but Vince Flynn provided one both in word and deed. His moral code and love for life/family speaks volumes for the love shown within the Flynn family.
May this GOOD man's soul rest in peace. My prayers go out to his family.. I will miss his exciting take on the corruption in politics...Vince always hit the nail on the head...
Vince was a true gentlemen who will be greatly missed. My condolences to the Flynn family on this tragic loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you always. God Bless.
I never met Vince Flynn, but because of what he stood for, we were the best of friends.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.Vince was a class guy. We will truly miss him.
"May the Lord bless you and keep you.
May the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you.
May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace."
Please accept my condolences. May the God be with the Flynn family (Romans 15:33 & 1Perter 5:7).
Terry&Kathy Our deepest sympathy to you and your families on Vinnies passing. I will always remember with pride the honor I felt in being able to play in two tee it up for the troops thanks to his generousity. God bless you all!
I'm so sorry for the pain of your loss. I enjoyed every word of every book Vince Flynn wrote and handed each book off to my husband who in turn, kept handing them around as he traveled the world on jobs. The books were great and I always looked for another one in the grocery store to see if a new one came out yet. Instead, our daughter called us with the saddest news of his death. Please accept our condolences and know that you are not alone in missing this fine man who gave so much to so many. I'm so sorry.
Sheila and Mark,
My deepest sympathy to you and your loved ones.
I always enjoyed the stories about your brother that you shared with me while you were grocery shopping.
Your positive attitude is an inspiration. God bless.
A tribute to Vince Flynn. We celebrate his amazing life as a father, husband, friend, author, protagonist, philanthropist, mentor, coach, and since the pen is mightier than the sword, warrior. He was the last man we would want to lose this way or this soon. Vince is immortalized by his work and will not be forgotten by all those whose lives he touched. His spirit and memory live on and he will always have our backs.

An amazing storyteller whose love for his family, his wife and children were clearly a reflection of God's love for him. I have enjoyed his gift of word and pen so very much and I will miss Mitch Rapp's adventures more than I can say.
Dear Kathy, Terry & family: I am deeply sorry for the loss of Vince. The loss of a child is something you never get over. You are all in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
Mary Dunleavy Smith
Dear Family of Vince Flynn,
We were introduced to Vince Flynn novels by my 89 year old mother-in-law. It didn't matter that it was a slow night at her retirement center, if she had her latest Vince Flynn thriller! When reading the acknowledgements in "Kill Shot", we were startled that he had dealt with cancer, but were convinced he nailed it. We are heartbroken for you that he is gone from you for now. Please know that our prayers are felt for you. Thanks for sharing him and his gifts with us. -An avid fan, and a Barton tutor
To the entire Flynn Family you are in my thoughts and prayers. I only met Vince once but his class was clearly evident Dan, I hope to see you at our 35th reunion; gosh that's a lot of years. Sincerely, Greg Carney cell 612-240-6996.
My prayers go out for the repose of Vince's soul and for the comfort and healing for his family. He was and still is my favorite author. I have read all his books twice and will do so again. GOD'S Blessings
Eternal rest, grant unto him, O Lord. I prayed my holy hour for his repose. So inspiring to hear how he turned to prayer and Adoration during his suffering.
Dear Tim, Ann and rest of the Flynn Family, Our hearts go out to all of you! We are all so sorry to hear of Vince's passing. Love, The Thompson/Campins Family, Cory, Jill & Kids
My deepest condolences to the Flynns and their friends. I was a huge fan of his and will miss his books so much. From all I've read, he was a gem of a person. This was such a shock, and I feel such sadness, yet I know, as Vince did, that in the end is the beginning -- of eternal life.
Enjoyed reading all of your novels!!! rest in Eternal Peace!
I am extremly saddened to hear of Mr. Flynn's passing. I read every book and they were always at the top of my reading list. He was an extraordinary author who will truly be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with the Flynn family and friends. Rest in peace.
Flynn family ~ I am MaryKate McMahon McFadden sister Flynn family ~ I am Margo McMahon Fochler, MaryKate McMahon McFaddens sister. I was heartsick and saddened to learn of Vince last passing while on vacation in Mexico celebrating my remission from colon cancer. Vince so thoughtfully and kindly reached out to me last Fall when I was diagnosed and found out I had to undergo chemotherapy and surgery. He truly inspired me with his generosity and spirit despite his own health struggles and setbacks. His faith and optomism in the midst of his struggles is an example to me of how to live when the going gets tough. Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers. Margo McMahon Fochler
Dear Lysa , I am so very sorry to hear of Vince's passing , We met while doing an estate sale for you guys in Edina and at that time it seemed the world was smiling down on your family again Im just so sorry , wishing you strength and peace .
Amazing man. My deepest sympathy to Mr. Flynn's family.
You were a true friend in our younger years as we worked in the hospitality industry,what I will remember most is your great laugh also your great advice. You left us all way too soon.... You will be missed. Prayers to your family. God bless you and may you rest in peace.
Eternal rest, grant unto him O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him.
May he rest in peace. Amen.
May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
His priorities were right-prayers for his wife & family.
Dear Flynn Family,
We all thought for sure that Vince would beat this so it came of great surprise. While we cannot understand why God calls his children home, we must trust there is a bigger job Vince was needed for in heaven. While it does not always comfort a grieving heart, we must surrender our control. . . .as we know only God holds the plan. May you find peace in knowing Vince truly touched this world and made it a better place for many. I pray for each of you that God will wrap his arms around you and grant you peace.
My wonderful husband died on 6/8/13 and had been too sick to read "THE LAST MAN". How great it would be if Vince can tell him all about it! Our prayers go to Mrs. FLYNN & children. GOD BLESS YOU.
Just shows how very powerful the pen really is. I mourn the fact that I will never read another book he wrote, and I mourn for his family who will surely miss him terribly. RIP VF
Ijust bought my first Vince Flynn book at Costco when I saw on CNN he had died.
What a loss. Love to his family and fans.
Rest in peace Vince Flynn. Thank you for your amazing books and creating Mitch Rapp. I always enjoyed listening to you on KFAN with Dan B. Thoughts and prayers go out to your family.
My late husband CPO Charles W. Ross, USN Ret was Navy Intelligence and passed away from the same disease that took Vince. They were both champions! My prayers are with the Flynn family at this difficult time. God Bless you all, and God Bless America!
Thank you Vince for all you brought to your readers. Praise God that Vince knew his Lord and Savior because he is now without pain as he is in Our Lord's living arms. My daughter is dyslexic and I held him up to het for inspiration. She'll graduate college next year. My deepest sympathy and prayers to his loving family and friends. May God help you through this trying times
Lysa and family,
My mind is still finding it hard to believe Mr. V is gone, so young and still to much to give. I along with so many feel how empty this world is without him. Husband, father, brother and friend whatever hat he wore he did it well.
Our deepest sympathy and condolences to you all.
My heart goes out to Mr. Flynn's family and friends. The world has lost another great writer. Bet Vince is in heaven trading stories with Robert B. Parker and Stephen Cannell.
My sincere condolences to the family of Vince Flynn. You are all in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
I graduated with you Fritz from St. Thomas and am so sorry about your family's Lost. Vince brought me much enjoyment and pleasure. His story is so inspiring to so many. I know he is at peace. I will say a rosary both your and his family. Dave DeTrempe
There is no way to be thankful enough for the writers who entertain avid readers all our lives. I've read all of Mr. Flynn's books and will sorely miss him and Mitch Rapp. My condolences. I'm sure your faith, family and friends will see the family through. Gwen Arnold, Texas
I have read all of your books, but I have admired you not only as a fantastic writer, but as a great man, who loved his family and his country very much. I will never forget you. God, please take good care of this very special soul. RIP.
I am so shocked at the passing of Vince Flynn. I love his books and feel he was such a good man. We need more good people in our world like Vince. My sincerest sympathies to his family.
Anne Vossenberg, Wayne, PA
My most sincere sympathy at your loss. I have read every one of his books. He was a prolific author and I will very much miss not seeing a new book from him each year. I am deeply saddened that he was taken so young. God always has a plan. As a Catholic, I will pray for him.
I am so deeply saddened by Vince Flynn's passing. I was waiting for his next Novel. Rest in Peace my Dear American Arthur.

I have read and enjoyed all of Vince Flynn's books, Will certainly miss them and will be hard pressed to find soneone else with his talent. My deepest sympathy to the entire Flynn family.
When my husdand passed away from cancer 6 years ago it was Vince Flynn's books that got me through the long nights.I feel like I have lost a good friend.Love and prayers to his wife, children and family on their loss
By your example, you proved your great passion for our military warriors and country. You taught us how to stand up to bullies through Mitch Rapp. You taught us men how to be tender-tough, and yet show deep love and compassion by how Mitch Rapp treated women. You had many of us who called you friend, even though we had not been formally introduced. You were my friend, Vince and I will never forget you. I will pass down your books to my family members that follow me so that your legacy will be extended to numerous generations. Thanks for all the laughter and tears...goodbye for now. I'll get to meet you in Heaven.
A true patriot , Vince was a sweetheart of a guy. Jesus will welcome Vince into paradise where he will spend an eternity in joy and with a new body walking the streets of gold and writing about a world without war and pain and corrupt American politicians.
An amazing and talented man taken too soon. He will be missed by millions. My condolences to the Flynn family from a big fan of his incredible books.
My deepest sympathies to the family. May you take comfort in his legacy. Loved his work....
I'll never forget him. He was a bright shining light. God bless his family and friends. Our prayers are with all of you.
At St. Thomas, I remember Vince sitting in the library surrounded by many friends, smiling and engaging in conversation. Even though he was the center of the group, he would always make it a point to acknowledge everyone who would pass by....sounds like he never lost that wonderful trait. God bless.
Our prayers are with you and your family.
I lived only blocks away from Vince Flynn. I enjoyed his books very much, and although I never saw him in person or ever got to know much about him, after he died I felt a shock and total loss as if he was close to me. May his work, love, and spirit live on.
Thinking of Vince's family & friends as they go through this time of grieving. Thank you for sharing Vince Flynn with us, his fans, as I enjoyed reading everyone of his books as much as his other fans. He has left a great legacy, not only as an author but as a person truly interested in others, as shown by the connections he continued in organizations around the Twin Cities. He will be missed by so many people.
I read all of Vince Flynn's books . My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family. His brilliance will live on!
Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with your family. I've read every book Vince had written and looked forward to each new book as it was published. He was truly a gifted writer and will be incredibly missed.
My prayers go out to your family. My thanks go out to you Mr Flynn because your books were a big reason in helping me get through my own treatments for Prostate Cancer. Thank you, and I know has welcomed you with open arms.
Prayers to the family. Vince will live on forever through his talent. I'm blessed to have had the chance to meet him at his book signings and hear him talk. A life taken way too soon.
Please accept our sincere sympathy on your loss. My son and I always looked forward to reading all of your husbands books. He will be greatly missed. HUGS!!
We never will know why God chose to take Vince at such a young age with so much ahead of him. Maybe a wake up to the medical and insurance community to provied coverage and screening for PSA for all men, just as we do mamograms for Breast Cancer. I did not know you Vince, but being a St Paul person I sure knew of you and of course loved the books but better the man you were. My prayers are with the Flynn family and friends - Tammy
To Lysa and children: Know your husband/dad brought incredible joy to his readers. He was a stellar human being. Your pain is felt by so very many. My deepest sympathies. God bless.
I was shocked today of hearing, of Vinces death. His books were addicting, After reading American Assasin,I needed more I bought the whole collection. And was hoping for more.Of course I'm in the first quarter of the last stand.Such talent. Vince you will be missed ! RIP. To the Flynn family God Bless !
I picked up a Vince Flynn book on a best selling authors table because we shared the same last name! It turned out to be his first and I loved it. It became the gift that I asked my Dad to give me each year for my birthday. I look forward to meeting him in Heaven!!
Kathy and Terri: Sorry for your loss. He was an excellent author. Our blessing to your family.
To my friend , I will miss you terribly , until we meet again "The Only Easy Day Was Yesterday"
A life cut way too short. I've been a fan of his books from the very first one on. All sit together on the top shelf of my library. Unfortunately there won't be any more. My sympathies to the entire family on the loss of a gifted person.

Thank you for sharing Vince with the state of MN. I could not wait until every book would come out. I knew it ment there would be a book signing and interviews to listen to on local radio. Everyone was always greeted with a smile and appreciation. I say Thank You Vince Flynn for the enjoyment you gave me. My prayers are with you all.
My wife and I offer our deepest sympathy to Vince's wife, children, family , and friends. His writing and his integrity were, and still are an inspiration. God Bless you all.
This is a great loss and he will be greatly missed.
our thoughts and prayers are with your family. Thank you Vince for all the hard work writing all of your novels. I enjoyed every one of them. May you rest in the arms of god
Vince Flynn was a tremendous talent, whose every book I've read and enjoyed. He was a hero of a man, on many levels, but most importantly by how he "kept the faith."
Our thoughts and prayers to his family and friends left behind, especially the children. Harry Potter lit our son Luke, on reading, Vince Flynn did that to me.
Blessings, Paulette Lewis, Robby, Leah, Luke Cashman and The Convent of the Visitation and STA Communities.
This is a true day of mourning. As president of the Twin Cities Sisters in Crime, I wanted to extend our deepest sympathy. We are all heartbroken. I heard Jason Lewis give a wonderful memorial show about him yesterday, and the impact he had on the entire country.
Terry and Kathy and your entire family, our deepest condolence. He was such a great talent and such a great guy. He will be missed by all
Bob and Suzie Ackerman Mecay. Santa Barbara Ca.lp
I will miss listening to Vince on Garage Logic when he was on talking about yet another amazing book. Good Luck and Godspeed.
Thank-you Flynn family for sharing Vince with all of his fans. I will miss his brilliant and captivating writing.
Lysa and family,
We are so sorrow for your loss.Our family has read every Vince Flynn book.We are truly going to miss him.
Terry, Kathy and family, our deepest sympathy at this time of sadness. We will always remember Vince as a neighbor and good friend with our sons (Mark and Mike Vannelli) when they they were young. You were truly blessed by having such a special son and brother. He was an example of everything good in a person.

Our deepest sympathy to the Vince Flynn family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
I have read all of Vince's books. His integrity and patriotism spring from each and every page. Please know of my appreciation for his spirit and his work.
Vince was an amazing author and one of my favorites. I and many, many others will surely miss him and the indomitable Mitch Rapp. There are not many of us who can touch as many lives as he. We are fortunate when someone comes along who can do that in such a positive way. Much sympathy to his family.
What a wonderful man. Although I didn't know him personally, I enjoyed his books and most of all seeing him on TV. My sympathy to all his family and friends.
Hard to put word in a thing like this,but HE WILL BE MISS
Thank you, Vince, for the wonderful characters and stories. ne of the first series my husband introduced me to in audiobooks on our road trips. It was such a treat to finally meet Vince in Nashville on the American Assassin book tour. Thank you for sharing your creativity with us.
Hoping that Vince's family and friends receive the care and comfort they need. Peace be with you all.
I will miss looking forward to and reading all of your novels, Vince!
While reading one of your books, many years ago, I came across our family name...Mitch was in Rome, Italy...his girlfriend had gone down to the restaurant and ordered a bottle of Foradori wine,it was so shocking to see our surname in print in one of your books!
I am so glad to have discovered you!
Thank you so much for all of your great novels
You will be so very missed by your family and readers!
God's blessings to you and all who love you!
Kelly and the rest of the Flynn family sending thoughts and prayers to you all!
We are so sorry to learn of Vince's passing. We wish you warm family times of great memories.
I'm one of the millions of readers of Vince Flynn's books. I discovered him last summer, when I was getting "bored" with my usual genre of romantic stuff. There was a blurb at my local library about the best-lent books of 2012, so I went with it and picked a book from the list by Vince Flynn.
I was floored by the humor, excitement and action of his book (I think the name was "Pursuit of Honor", but not sure). I loved it! I ended up reading another one of his books, and now look forward to more. I'm so sorry for your loss.
My condolences to the Flynn family. I got to know Vinnie while he was working at Plums bar, he was an easy soul to have a conversation with. Before I knew Vinnie I got to know Dan and Pat while at STA for two years. God Bless his family and friends
Dear Terry and Kathy.
We are so sorry for your great loss.
Our Love and Prayers, Pete and Christel
Vince was the greatest Author in the business. He will be missed as will Mitch Rapp. My best wishes go out to his family.
I know there is a plan, but right now I can't help asking WHY? Too young, too soon. My thoughts and prayers go out to your family.
To Dan and Pat and the Entire Flynn Family: I was very sorry to hear of your brother's passing, taken far too soon. May God Bless Vince and all of you during this very difficult time.
Thank you, Mr Flynn, for sharing your gift with the world. Hours of enjoyment have been spent with your books. My sister-in-law and I were thrilled to get to meet you at a few book signings over the years. I will cherish my signed copies even more. My son is a United States Marine and we want to give your our thanks for the respect you showed to all the military branches. It was inspiring to all.
God Bless you Vince Flynn, your family and your friends.
We've lost a brilliant point of light.
I actually attended STA and graduated in 86 with his younger brother Kevin. I regret not getting to know Vince when I attended STA at the same time, but I grateful on getting to know through our sons playing basketball together, ever time STA played Hi-C. During that time I saw and heard how much he loved his family. I talked with him after he found out and one of the first things he told me to do was go get checked out. I understand after talking with others that he requested they do the same. I was so fortunate to get to know him, I will truly miss him. I want to extend my condolences to his wife and kids and his entire family. He was an unbelievable person and we were so lucky to have him in our lives.
I am in the process of reading your books in order and am enjoying them very much. Will miss seeing your writings. R. I P.
Years ago I met Vince when he worked at Plums.
Not long out of college and working on the first book,
he was so enthusiastic and impressed me considerably.
I have read all of Vince's books as he has given his
gifts to the world. So sad to lose him at such a young age.
My thoughts and prayers to his entire family.
Dear Flynn Family --
May God grant you comfort and may fond memories of Vince bring smiles to your faces during times of sadness. Peace and prayers to you all.
Thank you Mr. Flynn and Godspeed.
To your family my prayers and thanks for sharing you with the world.
The "Special OPs Community" has lost a great friend. Vince laughed when I told hime that "you went on every Mission with us" Someone always had a copy of one of your books. Great company during down time.God Bless you Vince and the Family. CSM/Mac
To the Flynn Family,
memories of Vinny growing up in the neighborhood will never be forgotten. He was a curious, kind, engaged little boy, always polite and interested in people and life. He took in everything around him "listening" with those big
That little boy became a magnanimous man.
We share you sadness and tears.
May God hold each and everyone of you, and Vince, in the Palm of His Hand.
Love and prayers,

To the Flynn Family, cousin Kathleen and Terry my deepest sympathy and condolences. A mass will be celebrated in his honor in Okoboji Ia.
I didn't know Mr. Flynn but I know Mitch Rapp better than I know some of my own family members. He not only got me hooked on his books, he got me hooked on reading. He will be greatly missed. My sympathies to his family.
I feel as if I lost a friend, my thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
My prayers go out to Vince and his family. I have read all of Vince's books and was thrilled by them all. Heard of his passing on Rush Limbaugh's program Wednesday morning. As an alumnus of the College of St. Thomas, it was a special pleasure to read his books. Joseph E. Filipczak, Evansville, IN (formerly of St. Paul, MN).
My heart felt condolences for the loss of your beloved husband. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. With love, Michelle
I met Vince twice in Denver at the bookstore where I work. A gentleman and a great guy. The world will miss him. My mom's favorite author.
To the Flynn family, Vince has given me hours and hours of enjoyment in his writings. I have read every book he has written. God bless you all at this time of need. We have another Saint praying for us all.
My deepest sympathy to all of Vince's family, friends, and devoted readers. We are all grief stricken at the news. Our prayers are with you. He will be missed so very much!I wish I could have met him; and although I know they are just characters in a book, Mitch Rapp and Kenedy and some of the gang feel like friends. I have the first edition for all his books, couldn't wait, had to run out the very same day the books were released,. Always excited about where Vince would take me this time. Good bye Vince, and Mitch Rapp, Kennedy, Scott Coleman, Stan and all the others. I will miss you all so much. God Bless you all
Rest in Peace, Vince! My condolences, and sympathies to your wife and children! You will be so missed!
I never realized God so loved Mitch Rapp thrillers that He asked the author to join Him so soon.
you will be missed and in my prayers, I have read every book you have written. Iam saddened and still in shock. god bless u and your family.
Having read every Mitch Rapp thriller I was very sorry to hear one of my all time greatest authors has died. I'll really miss him.
Oh Vinnie… You are just larger than life... It just doesn't seem possible that you're… Someone once said "Love doesn't die, people do. When all that is left of me is love, give me away." You brought so much love by way of escape, joy and humor to this world. Wishing you peace in the next and strength to your family as they carry on in this one.
Dear Flynn family,
My husband was lucky enough to have met Vince at a book signing of Memorial Day at Lake Country Booksellers in White Bear Lake in 2004. We are avid Mitch Rapp fans and always looked forward to October when we knew a new book was coming - the Fall will be a little less sweet in the coming years ....our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
I am sorry for your loss. May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
My deepest sympathy to all of Vince's family, friends, and devoted readers. We are all grief stricken at the news. Our prayers are with you. He will be missed so very much!I had the pleasure of meeting him at a book signing, here in Birmingham, AL, after his first book was published and he became my favorite author at once. Every year, I purchased his book on the day it was published and released to the public and then would "save" it until Christmas day to read it. Christmas Day will never be the same.
My prayers go out to the flynn family my parents got me hooked on his books. I know that he is in the arms of Jesus and i pray that Gods angels come down and surround the flynn family at this dificult time.
It isn't often that talent, faith and a deep love of country come together in one person. All of us who saw Vince interviewed and read his books only have a small hint as to what has been lost by those close to him. My deepest condolences on your loss. He is gone too soon, but will live on in the literary legacy he left as well as in your hearts.
I feel like I have lost a family member. I am so sorry for your loss. We love his books. Rest in peace, Vince. We will miss your books.
I am so sorry for your loss of this wonderful and so very generous man, husband and father.
Dear Family of Vince Flynn:
Our prayers are with you. Vince was an inspiration both as an author and as a man of faith. We loved his novels, and we admired his gentle and courageous spirit. Dennis and Patti Carlson of West St. Paul.
When you get to heaven, say hello to my dad. He would have loved your books as much as my son and I do.
I have read all Vince's books and enjoyed them all. My friends also read them and we were all shocked to hear of his death. We will miss his great stories and Mitch Rapp, who we called a 'Studmuffin'. Just wanted to send my condolences to his family and let them know how much we enjoyed his work.
Condolences to the family of a very special man. Your husband, father, and son was a great American in addition to being an author that I admire. Mr Flynn - I will miss you. RIP
Rest In Peace, Vince Flynn. Thank you for introducing the world to Mitch Rapp.
My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Flynn family as you go throught these difficult times.
Thank you for the many hours of great reading, Vince. You left us far too soon. My deepest condolences to your family.
To family of Vince Flynn: I thought the world of him as a modern "thriller" author. I impatiently awaited his next novel. I am so very sorry at the very premature death of this talented writer, and his loss by the family.
I was Vince's 4th grade teacher (also Sheila's) in Apple Valley. I remember his bangs framing that cute face. Even as a 9 year old boy he was kind hearted. I marveled at what he became and of what he overcame to become a writer. I am so sad that his life ended so early. My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Flynn family.
The news of Vinces passing is difficult to digest, I am a prostate cancer survivor for 5 years. I thank him for getting me to discover the joy of reading while I was on the mend from my surgery. I listened to an interview with with Joe Soucheray's Garage Logic. His knowledge of the CIA and FBI was facinating, and I was hooked.
Thank you Vince for all you have done for those of us with prostate cancer, my only wish is you family will take some comfort in knowing you touched more lives that you could ever know.
Gods Blessings to you family and friends of Mitch.
PS. If there were Mitch's in the work of real life we all would be better for it.
Vince Flynn.. Thank You for Your Kindness!
I'm about to turn 47...cannot imagine dying this young...My prayers are with the family.
May the Blessed Mother who comforted you at his bedside continue to comfort you for years to come. What a kind and genuine man. Peace to your hearts. The Herbecks
Looking forward to a new Vince Flynn book was like a kid looking forward to Xmas. Followed his career and read evry book. Feel like I lost a good friend......I am sure Mitch even has a tear in his eye.Condolences to his family.
Lysa and family, I pray God will grant you peace and mercy and grace during you time of loss and grief. God's love abounds, and I hope each of you finds some throughout the coming days and weeks.
Vince got me into reading and I turned many co-workers and family members on to his books. Couldn't get enough. Loved his books and Mitch Rapp. I got to meet him at a book signing in Scottsdale, AZ...and enjoyed listening to him on KFAN with Barreiro from afar in AZ. I was saddened by the news of his passing. God Bless
Tim and the entire Flynn family,
My heart goes out to all of you at this time. He was such a great guy. I'm
So sorry for your loss.
Molly McLaughlin Schuler
Heartbreaking loss! God will be with his family and friends.
Loved everyone of his books. What a wonderful talent he had and shared with all his fans. He will be missed. Sending our prayers to Lysa, family and friends.
Grief can be so hard, but our special memories help us cope. Remembering you and your loved one today and always.
I was not only an avid fan and reader of Vince's mesmerizing stories but also admired him for his brave fight against the cancer that finally took him from us. Also enjoyed our exchange of e-mails. The world has lost a truly major talent.
Mitch Levy, Alexandria, VA
Great fans of all your books, We have lost someone so special.Our thoughts with all the family circle. Such a loss,
A great loss to all his fans. My prayers go to his loving family and remember what a wonderful talent he possessed.
RIP. Thoughts and prayers go out to the Flynn family and all of his friends.
My husband and I used to fuss over who got to read the new book first. Sometimes I would lay it down and he would pick it up. I love Vince Flynn's writing and have collected everyone of his books. Will read them again! God bless his wife and children, who will miss him much more than all of his readers. Praying for your comfort during the hard days ahead.
Cannot believe he is gone! Absolutely love his books! I will miss him. He was on wbz radio a few months ago loved the interview. RIP Vince
Dear Terry,Kathy and family,
Our prayers are with you in your time of grief. Your loss will be echoed by millions of his devoted fans.
I first "met" Vince Flynn through the Glenn Beck program. He seemed like such a person of integrity that I decided to read one of his books, even though I was never into thrillers. I was hooked. I also followed his valiant struggle with cancer, admiring his faith, courage and optimism. He is gone too soon and will be missed dearly by those who knew and loved him most. But he will be missed by so many for his marvelous gift of story-telling. A tragic loss to this world, but heaven has welcomed him home. God be with his family and give them peace.
I will miss reading his books so very much. He was probably my favorite author. RIP
I am sitting here and at a lose for words. Having a husband with prostate cancer I want to say I know what Lisa and her family are going through but I can't . I met Vince at a book signing in Charloettesville Va. My friend Naomi and I drove 3 hours and were lucky enough to sitt in the front row. Afterwards he sat and signed books and took pictures with everyone there. He will be sadly missed. God Bless Lisa and the family . My prayers are with you all.
Each book made my day, kept me up all night and in anticipation of a new one.
I feel I have lost a friend. His death is tragic for the readers and a loss that I am sure unbearable for his loving family. God be with him.
A major loss obviously to his family but also to his reading fans. He accomplished so much in so little time. Peace.
My husband and I were huge fans of Mr Flynn and his writing. Having lost a grown son to cancer in his mid thirties we especially grieve for his family but celebrate his legacy. Deepest sympathy , Holly and Jonathan Decherd.
I thought he would beat it. So Sad -He was one of a kind. How I hurt for his family.
Vince was the very best. I read all of his books. I would rank him right up there with Baldacci, Clancy,Grisham, Coulter and a on par with Hemingway. Term Limits really set the tone for
all that followed. My wife & I will miss his work.
Dear Flynn Family, Early during my first days at St. Thomas Academy I met Vince Flynn. Terry would bring him to practices and he would run around throwing footballs and entertaining the troops !! He has kept doing that as my favorite author. I will miss him and want his family to know that he will be in my family's thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Leo Collins
How sad I am at the death of such a wonderful writer and good man at such a young age. I will greatly miss both looking forward to his books, reading. I will enjoyding rereading them. Peace to his family as they grieve his death.
My deepest condolences. Rest in peace.
I just enjoyed all your books immensely.
Thanks for giving us your talent.
I never enjoyed reading until my first Vince Flynn book.
Well done good and faithful
Go in Peace
My heart is sad at hearing of Vince Flynns passing. May he rest in peace! Our hearts are with his wife, children, family and friends in their time of sorrow. May God give you much comfort! We so enjoyed reading all of Vinces books. He was a great writer but most of all a beautiful person! He will live on in the hearts of many!!
My deepest sympathy to the family of Vince Flynn. May your memories be a source of comfort at this sad time. God Bless.
I did not know Vince Flynn personally, but will never forget him via his books and greatly enjoyed everyone. God bless his family.
Because I am in the military, the character of Mitch Rapp, easily became my favorite. I looked forward each fall to the latest book by Vince. I will miss reading about Mitch, but more importantly, sad of the passing of Vince for his family.
Oh, how I will miss his wonderful writing skills. I have read all his books and will feel the void his passing will leave. He was taken way too soon. God bless you Mitch!
Maxine Lucas [Cupertino,CA.]
My sympathy to his family. The world lost an incredible man with a talent for storytelling. So very sad....he will be missed.
As a greatful reader but a very senior citizen, sometimes God just doesn't seem fair. Know that I have you all and Vince in my prayers today and at Mass.
God bless Vince and his family,
Vince brought me countless hours of listening pleasure during my 3 hour daily commutes. He was a true American writer – taken from you too soon. Take comfort in believing Vince is right now telling St. Peter how he was way ahead of the CIA super sleuths. I'll light a candle in his memory on Sunday. Rest in peace Vince.
Sad, sad news. I will miss you Vince although I knew you only through the joy you gave me through your books. Peace. God Bless your family.
Goodbye friend. Like the wind....on the wings of angels.
He brought to life great characters and allowed us to enjoy his gift of writing. I read them all and am very sad that there will be no more. God Bless Vince and his family and God Bless America.
May you and your family be blessed with many pleasant memories of Vince. I enjoyed reading all of his books
What a great loss. The world lost a special person, he will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife and children. May God hold you in his arms and comfort you in this time of sorrow. God bless you all.
Another great author in the same venue as Ludlum and L'Amour has passed. A great human being. We will miss him.His wife and children should stand proud in his memory.

He made my day could not wait for his next book, have read them all. Rest in peace.
I have spent many hours with Mitch Rapp. The stories so well written, that I listen to them again when I cannot find other books that interest me. I am Proud that you were a Minnesotan, and American and a Patriot. Vince, you will be missed by all. My condolances to your family.
I too feel the loss of Vince. Listening to Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh, I know him a little better and he is the man that I thought he was. God Bless the family and may the Holy Spirit give you comfort.
Dear Flynn Family:
My deepest condolences on your loss. Vince brought a lot of pleasure to his avid readers of the Mitch Rapp saga. Both Vince and Mitch were truly one of a kind. Thanks for all the great reading memories.
More important, Vince was obviously a man of abiding faith in God. He was a great example to his family, his friends, his readers and others suffering from severe illness. He accepted his suffering with great dignity.
May eternal salvation be his. We will miss him here on earth.
My heart goes out to Lysa...she has experienced too much loss. I hope she is comforted by the wonderful memories. I know she is a positive personality and strong!! Hang in there Lysa....time will help, so sorry for your loss.
My condolences at the death of your husband, Vince, and my condolences to your children. You are in my prayers and thoughts.
Loved his books!!! Prayers for his family and friends. Will miss Mitch Rapp also.
What a loss of a great author! So sorry for your loss of your husband/father....
God Bless Vince Flynn. my thoughts and prayers are with his wife and family.
Like so many others, never met the man, but was deeply saddened at the news. It is like losing a good friend. I hadn't read much of anything for years, then started to read Vince's books, and found the great joy of reading like I had never had. Mitch was also the guy we would like to be. God Bless to the families and you will be in our prayers.

I have been a fan of Vince's books since I heard him on the KQRS morning show many years ago-based on his interview I went out to get his first book and was hooked! I am typically not a "military reader" but his books were so awesome and the story lines were great! I was saddened a few years ago to hear of his cancer prognosis and had a very sad day yesterday to hear of his passing-I never met him but heard a lot about what a fine, outstanding person he was-we need more people like that! I will miss him and his books-I am sorry for the family that he had to go at such a young age-the world lost a truly great person-He touched many lives from himself and his books!My sympathy to his family- Bernie Kemp Dayton, MN
I will truly miss Vince. Our prayers and hearts go out to his family. I look forward to seeing Vince in Heaven someday.
So sorry to hear of his passing. He a was so young with a great life ahead of
him. He will be greatly missed by all of
us that have read all his books and looked forward to the next one.
what a wonderful writer and individual. I feel like I've lost a friend, of course I never met Vince. Thoughts and prayers to the family.
Thank you for all that enjoyment, it will be missed, our thoughts are with his family. R.I.P.
I had attended many of Vince's book signings at the Barnes & Nobles in Edina, and every time he was interesting to listen to and very friendly. A great man and great writer is gone and will be mised. My sympathies to his family.
Vince your writing was top notch Never could put your books
down until finished. Everything that I have heard about you as a person through Rush and Glenn sounds like we truly have lost a special person. You will be missed, may your soul rest in peace and your family heal in your loss.
God has chosen another of our Good Guys but we all feel a great loss. Marilyn
My deepest sympathy to Vince's family. May God bless you during this time and always. The world has suffered a huge loss and heaven has gained an amazing soul.

My sympathy goes out to you. I was hooked on the first Vince Flynn book I read and have been reading them ever since. Heard lots of wonderful things from all who knew him. May he rest in peace.
My condolences to his family, he was too young but what a power packed life he had!
FROM AN OLD IRISH SAYING: EVERY HAIR ON VINCE'S HEAD TURNED INTO A CANDLE TO LIGHT HIS WAY TO HEAVEN.
Although I never met Vince Flynn I feel as if I lost good friend. As a fellow pro-America Irish Catholic, I felt a bond with him.I don't have a favorite song, group, food, drink, almost anything. But I have a favorite author and he created my favorite character and I will miss them both. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
Bummer. Guy was a grat read. RIP
Loved Vince and all his books which I have read multiple times. Will miss his amazing Mitch Rapp adventures and my prayers are will his family. GOD BLESS!
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
We feel like we have lost a friend.
Our prayers for your family.
Love, the Bouffards. In Texas
I love Vince Flynn's books and his character, Mitch Rapp. I am sad that this great writer and wonderful human being has left us and his family at such a young age. God Bless his wife and kids. Thank you, Vince, for your stories and for being a "Great American."
This is devastating news. Vince was a huge talent and he will be missed! God Bless his family. Our deepest sympathy.
My thoughts and prayers to the Flynn family and friends. I know this is going to sound crazy, but as I was reading Mr Flynn's obituary I truly felt like I wasn't just losing him but I'm losing Mitch Rapp and Irene Kennedy too. Mr Flynn made them so real and honorable to me that all three will be missed.
I have been a fan of Vince Flynn for years and will miss reading his books.
Eternal rest, grant unto him O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him.
May he rest in peace. Amen.
May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
It is with great sadness that my husband and I read the news of Vince Flynn's death. Our sincerest condolences to his wife, children, family and friends. Rest in Peace with our loving God.
Saddened beyond words. Rest in Peace Brother. sigh'
THERE ARE NO WORDS TO EXPRESS THE LOSS. MR. FLYNN WAS A GIFT TO ALL MAN. WE WERE VERY LUCKY TO HAVE HAD HIM. GOD BLESS AND KEEP HIS FAMILY.
My deepest sympathy to Mr. Flynn's family. I have enjoyed his books (even second time through). He'll be missed for his books but most of all for the man he was. God surely has a special place for him.
Rest easy Mr Flynn. Ci vediamo piu tarde.
May God bless Vince's family and friends. We will miss him but know he is in God's hands now.
To the Vince Flynn Family,
Please accept my prayers and my sincerest condolences on Vince's death. He was one of my favorite authors and gave so many hours of reading pleasure with his talent. His emailed newsletter-the only one to which I've ever subscribed-made him even more real to fans. He was a class act and will be missed by many!
Great loss of a young American, a devoted husband and father, a great writer and above all a Servant of The Lord.
We are so sorry to hear of the death of Vinny Flynn. We have known the family for many years as part of the St. Thomas Academy and College communities. Basketball, football, family parties, all were a part of it. The Flynn's are wonderful people. This is a terrible thing to hear. Our friendship and heartfelt condolences go out to them. Gail Heller, Tony Mans, and our sons, Tim and Dan Blumentritt
Loved his work. Condolences to those he leaves behind.
It is hard to believe that Vince Flynn has left us to go to his heavenly home. He provided me with many hours of reading, I first read his books when I was recuperating from knee surgery , then look forword to the book that came out every year. RIP Vince, you will be missed.
For the Flynn Family, I am a family man and know your loss from my heart. May God wrap his arms of love and kindness around our brother, Vince Flynn and comfort his beautifull family
Thanks Vince for many hours of great reading. As a military officer I always enjoyed your stories .I am so sadden to hear about your departure but know that you are in the care of a loving Heavenly Father.
I will miss my friend, fellow classmate (STA)and favorite Author. Go with God Vinnie.
Read and loved every book, a true American. Will miss his book and Mitch.
Grieving the passing of Vince Flynn today. I felt that he was a friend from reading all of his books. I have them all and will read them many times. My deepest sympathy to his family and closest friends. My prayers will be with you. May Vince rest in peace.
His moral compass and story telling ability will be we us always. Every book was a great read. My prayers are with his family.
I am so saddened to hear that Vince Flynn passed to God. I thoroughly enjoyed his novels and I will miss his excellent story telling. May he rest in peace with his God.
I had the honor to meet Vince and to interview him some years ago. His courage and example was a personal inspiration to me, encouraging me to become a novelist. He had an indelible impact on me, as I know he did on so many others. What a tragic loss. What remains today of my heart goes out to his family and friends. I'm attaching a photo from my magazine interview with him, which you can find at Bidinotto.com. Salute, Vince...
Dear Flynn Family,
Our Families Thoughts and Prayers go out to you. We will Miss Vince Beyond Words...
May He Rest in Peace...
I am beyond sad to hear about Mr. Flynn's passing. He brought much joy to me and my family though his books. My deepest sympathies to his entire family. You are in my prayers.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Have been a massive fan of his since I picked up Transfer of Power and read it. Loved all of his books, my condolences to his wife and children.
Our whole family are big fans and were so sorry to hear that Vince had passed. We'll miss his great books. Our prayers are for him and his family during this difficult time. May his soul rest in peace.
I am so sad to hear of Vince's passing. He had an incredible talent, and his writing brought world issues home to Mainstreet in a way that is usually lost on all of us that don't experience it. Praying that God will bless and bring peace to Vince's family.
I am saddened by the passing of the great Vince Flynn. Truly an incredible author. Vince and Daniel Silva are my two all time favorites.
I also loved listening to Vince. Very articulate, intelligent, and funny.
Rest in peace. God bless your family and friends Mr. Flynn!
Your genius writing has made me a better person and has brightened my life…………you will be forever missed and loved…………May you rest in peace and may God watch over your family
Dear Flynn family - today has been a sad day; Vince Flynn and Mitch Rapp will surely be missed. Even though I never had the pleasure of meeting Vince I have mourned his passing. I have been praying for Vince and will continue to pray for all of you, his family. Marcia DeHaven
My husband and I are incredibly sad to hear of Vince's passing. He provided us many hours of enjoyment and connection over his novels, and we will deeply miss those moments in the future. I have most of his books and will make a point to purchase those I don't, though we have read them all. Our deepest condolences to his family and friends who were lucky enough to know him. He will never be forgotten.
Loved his writing and thrilling books.
Dear Lisa & Children and extended Flynn family: Thank you so much for sharing Vince with all of his readers for all of these many years. I pray that you will find comfort and eventual peace in the arms of God during this very difficult time. I will keep all of you in my prayers during the coming days.
In His Love,
One of the true mystery writers of our time. I will truly miss your Mitch Rapp stories. I have all your books sitting on my book shelves, and will re-read them the rest of my life. To your family I'm truly sorry for your loss. May God bless you in your time of sorrow. I know I speak for millions of Vince's avid fans we thank you for sharing your stories with us. God speed.
Vince timed many of his book releases to coincide with my son's birthday. Every year Zach got the new Flynn book for his birthday - then I got to read it too. I will miss Vince's books (and Mitch Rapp), but I will also miss hearing Vince on the radio. His voice of reason was a breath of fresh air.
My sympathies to Vince's family during this very difficult time. I hope you find some solace in knowing how many lives Vince touched through his books.
Vince was a brilliant writer I enjoyed everyone of his books.I am so sad to hear of his passing.My prayers and deepest sympathy to his family.
In honor of Vince Flynn--
My annual Christmas present from my youngest son for the past several years was the latest hardback Vince Flynn novel! I looked so forward to it!! You are absolutely, unequivocally by favorite author!! Mitch Rapp and his heroic selfless behavior on behalf of his country (despite it's government frailties) was inspiring! I am truly hoping that men and women like Mitch really are out there protecting us in such a fearless determined manner.
My condolences to your dear family.
You will be truly missed!! God bless!

Dear Flynn family I am so sorry to hear about Vince. I knew what was going on in his life with the cancer but I did not know it was this serious. My thoughts and prayers go out to you Lysa and the kids. I wish I could have got in contact with you guys.

A very great man! He will be miss!!
I don't know why Vince's death has so greatly affected me today - he was such a great writer and so brave and he seemed wonderfully human. I grieve with his family in this deep loss. While I never met him, his books conveyed much of who he was and how he loved this country. May God be with you in the days to come and may your memories be a great comfort to you.
So sorry to hear of Mr. Flynn's passing. He was one of my favorite authors. I was just introduced to him in the past year. RIP and prayers for your family.
A sad day. I have been a Vince Flynn addict since I read his first novel. He will missed greatly. He was right on the.money in his books. He wrote fiction but it was so close to reality. He will become more famous in death than in life.
Rest in Peace, Vince. Thank you. You will be greatly missed.
I knew Vince..he was a true, real and passionate person in every facet. Not only will a generation be deprived of his novels but many people will not of had the pleasure of knowing him. A true gentlemen. My thoughts are with Vince's family.
so sorry to hear this sad news. I loved his books and my prayers are with his family. Even tho I never met him I am shocked and sorrowful. God be with all the family.
I read "Term Limits", said A-men and was hooked for each ensuing book. Mr. Flynn had a style and knowledge that entrigues and captivates. The world has lost not only a great author, but a great human being. May God bless his family at this time of need.
Vince was a great writer, but most important, a great human being. I will miss his presence at STA events. I am also grateful for the many hours of service to St. Thomas Academy. My deepest sympathy goes out to his family.

My deepest sympathy to the Flynn family for their loss. He was a wonderful writer and I will miss that. But he was a wonderful man and a patriot. I will miss that more.
So sorry for your loss. I enjoyed every book, especially when Irene's quirky neighbor Mr. Soucheray was walking his dog Rookie. If I had ever met Vince in person I would have asked him if he could put Pat Reusse in just so Mitch could snub Pat! RIP Vince.
Prayers are being said for his wife and children, one super writer, have all of his books and read a few twice, he will really be missed and have heard him speak , very good person .There are few words to say, it s like someone really close to me is gone, god bles and be with his family

I was so sorry to hear of Vince Flynn's death. I have read all of his books and enjoyed them very much. He was what I called a self-taught man. I think his publisher got it right. We will miss Rapp's character - but we will miss Vince Flynn even more. My condolences to his family.
