The whole thing started with a young girl's love of Charlton Heston... & after watching Andromeda Strain the girl was left wanting better. So, she found the book & having read it there was an automatic transfer of love/positive regard to a new "object", the author. And, so it went through the yrs & that regard grew (even if as an adult the "girl" disagreed with the author on his thoughts on climate change, despite the thorough research presented).
Despite the many yrs since your demise, you are missed & today for reasons that are unimportant I choose to state that you remain in my thoughts - always alive!
If there ever was an author who inspired me it was you. I have enjoyed your books and movies and shared them with my son who was taken on May 17, 2011. I just wanted to thank you and will always remember the card you sent many years ago.
your works are an inspiration to me I hope one day I will be like you. I will miss your books I always waited for the newest one to come out. My teen years wouldn't have been the same with out dinosaurs, murder mysteries, alien space ships, and time travel. Thank you and may the after life be your next great adventure.
Michael Crichton was and is still my alltime favorite author. I have been reading his books, starting with "Jurassic Park", since I was twelve. I love to read them over and over again, for I learn something new everytime. I'm dedicating my school portfolio piece to "State of Fear", and am greatly looking forward to reading "Pirate Latitudes". Thanks for being the sourse of this 11th grader's inspiration,
Rest in Peace, God Bless
You are missed however,
your words will live
Micheal...this is for you.
WEEP NOT FOR ME
Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.
Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.
I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.
Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.
Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.
Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
with a smile and a sigh.

To the Crichton Family-Those we love left us with gifts in the form of memories that no one can take away. They gave us wisdom that we still can recall.
May the God of all comfort continue to give you the strength to continue on each day.
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.
He was an inspiration to me and his talent has touched my life. I continue to miss him, dearly. My thoughts and prayers still go out to those he left behind. His words will live forever.
He was one of my favourite sources of creative energy, and the cosmos will miss his presence. My sincere condoleances to his close ones. They lost a great human being.
Dr. Christophe LAURENT,
What a wonderful Author! I liked Jurrasic Park especially. My son too he would watch it over an over!
Why do our loved ones have to die?
I am sure he had many more stories to write so much more to share with his family and fans.
(Genesis 3:1-5)(2Peter 3:13)
'Timeline' is still one of the best books I ever read. A challenging and talented author, and an icon of 20th century literature...
I am shocked and greatly saddened to have just learned that we have lost a giant in the world of story telling. I have read his every book and have been a devoted fan.
May God bless you, Michael.
you have for a long time been one of the greatest writers and one of my absolute favorite authors, you will always be remebered
You will be the inspiration for millions of up in coming young writers.

Cynthia Elizabeth Palmer & Family
No words are adequate at a time like this. Just want the family to know that this was a man who I admired, loved his books, and trusted his judgement.
He will be missed. Layne.
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Michael Crichton. He was an icredible storyteller and I have read every one of his books, some of them twice. May God Bless his family at this time of sorrow.
I admire this man and hope to live my life in a way that honors his memory and keeps his ideals alive. He was truly one of a kind. I was and am inspired by his passion and hard work. My condolences to the Crichton family.
You were and always will be my Hero.God Bless You and your family....Thank you!
To The Crichton: Sorry to hear about the death of your dear husband and father may the God of all comfort be with your family at this time and give you peace.1Corinthians1:3
Sorry to hear about your lost. As I read about people passing away with cancer makes me think twice. I had breast cancer and went to chemo and radiation. Their is not one day thay you don't think about it. Very scary. I will pray for the family.
My condolences to the family. I didn't read any of his books, but do watch ER religiously;
To the Crichton Family,
I will never forget the first time I ever watched Mr. Crichton's wonderfully put together show called "ER". I have followed that show for the last 15 seasons. I am sorry to see it go. Understandably though every good things must come to and end. I hope that you family member lived the way he wrote and produced. He was wonderful and I am sorry for you lose and I hope you stay strong.
An extraordinary man who wrote with the assumption that his readers were intelligent. A true gift. he will be missed.
A great man! My deepest Synpathy to the Crichton family.
May he rest in peace.
What a terrible loss, not only to you his family, but also to those of us who found love in reading, movies and ER. So fitting that this should be the final season of ER, what would it be without YOU? YOU will be truly missed.
Rest in Peace Michael, you brought a lot to an industry that will sorely miss your talent.
I worked for your Father at the American Association of Advertising Agencies in the Pan Am Building. He was a wonderful person. He was so proud of you while you were in medical school.
Unfortunately you have left this world so early and the future work you could have done will be a loss to this world.
Rest in peace and thank you for the wonderful stories.
My condolences to the Crichton familiy.Everyday there are discusions,debates,arguments and conjecture passed about his ideas and works.How many authors can you name who has inspired so much discusion since "Andromeda Strain" in the field of science and technology. His books rest on my shelves next to books written by Sagan,Hawking,Clarke and Verne,not by alphabet of course. I am glad to have to lived in a world that had his work in it.
My deepest condolences to the Crichton family, and to all fans like me. Reading Jurassic Park was the start of my love for books and reading and that has greatly improved my confidence. His books not only entertain but also offers great awareness/information.
May the comforting thought from the Bible book of Revelation, the 21st chapter, verse 4 be of comfort to you. It reads: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” I offer my sincere condolences to you all.
To the Crichton Family,
Our deepest sympathies on your loss. We became aware of his talent following the Andromeda Strain. All of his writings were greatly anticipated by our entire family. The world seems sadder today. We will miss him.
The Westlund Family
I was saddened to hear of Michael Crichton's passing. He had me hooked on The Andromeda Strain, and I've read most of his novels since then. He was a very gifted author. God bless his family during this time of sorrow. My prayers are with you all.
Michael was one of my favourite authors and in fact was the reason I began to love reading. I always got excited about his books and put on hold my reading list until I finished his latest book.
I wish his family the best and my condolences are with them.
To the Friends and Family of Michael, My most sincere sympathy. I will dearly miss his work but always admire his spirit and writing skills . God Bless you all
the memory of the wonderful person that was Michael Crichton will live on everytime someone reads one of his novels.
The world has lost a truly great artist. So sorry to hear the news and may God be with you during this time of loss.
Thank you for sharing a part of your life with us.
My prayers to Mr. Crichton's family. Thank you for allowing him to provide my family countless hours of entertainment. He will never be forgotten.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
My heart felt sympathy is sent to you and your family. Michael had an ingenius mind and we will forever share that in his books, Sincere wishes
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Michael Crichton may he rest in peace and may god bless his family and watch over them all of their lives.
Thank You Mr. Crichton for ER and all of your great movies.
My husband said last night that this one death has saddened him immensely. If you knew my husband, you would know, as I do, that not many things make him emotional. He was very shocked by this loss and he spoke about Mr. Crichton and his works for a few minutes last night to me.
I never read his books, like my husband did, but I loved ER and the Jurassic Park series. He was a very talented author.
I know my husband and I will miss him much.
You were a great inspiration and will be missed greatly. We loved the movie "Jurrasic Park" and you did wonderful work. We pray that your family will get through this difficult time and that your legacy will live on. It is so difficult losing such wonderful people, but you will always be remembered! God bless your family!
Sincerest sympathies to his family and friends. One of the few authors I would read just because he wrote it. He never disappointed.
Mr. Crichton: Thank you for sharing your gift. We have lost a great storyteller. Godspeed.
May God bless your family in this time of sorrow.
He was my favorite author.
One of the first books I read that Michael had written was Five Patients. As a medical provider this book gave me insight I never would have had. Of course I loved Andromedia Strain and Jurassic Park. Prayers and blessings to family.
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
May God be with your family in your time of grief.
He will be missed by all of his fans.
WE SEND OUR PRAYERS, LOVE,& CONDOLENCES TO THE CRICHTON FAMILY,FRIENDS,& ALL WHO KNEW HIM.
Blessings and sincere sympathy to your family at this sad time and thank you for sharing your creative talents with the world.
Thank you for the hours and days and years of entertainment from your books, movies and especially ER... Our family of nurses, doctors, Physician Assistants, and Physicial Therapists all could enjoy a medical show without picking it to pieces. Our future will be less entertaining without you. God Bless your family and friends.
I would like to offer my condolences to Michael's family.
He was a wonderful writer. I have read all his books and enjoyed them vey much. Remember your memories of you husband and father and he will always be in your hearts.
C. Weber(Waymart, PA)
To the Family,
I am so very sorry for your loss. Michael Crichton has been a favorite author of mine for years. I loved the way he could take science and make it exciting and challenge me to think outside the box defined by the main stream media. I, for one, will greatly miss his style.
I have read so many of your books. I have always anxiously awaited the next one. Sad that there will not be anymore. The world has definitely lost a great author and a great man.
I'm stunned. I have looked forward to each and every new novel of Michael for years. His method of researching his subject matter and then writing thoughtful, provoking drama is unequaled in the world. May God bless him and his surviving family.
My deepest regrets to Michael's family and close friends. He gave me hours of enjoyment with all his writings.
I consider him one of the best writers ever.
All The Best Michael!
Please accept my Condolences for the loss of your loved one may The God of all Comfort Provide you with peace in you time of grief.
I was very sad to hear this morning of your passing, not only for the general public and your many admirers, but also for your family. I am sure you knew you were loved but I believe now you see the depth of all our gratitude and admiration for all you did to entertain us. Thank You for that and God Bless you and your family.
I have marked the years, and decades since the 70's with the release of a new book filed with mind stretching ideas and adventures. He's gone? I had hoped for many more chances to receive his creative gifts. They live on my bookshelf and will be shared with my children. Thank you Michael Crichton and good bye.
I have read all your books and already miss a next one that will never come.
You have been an ispiration for my writings and my hopes as an author. thank you Michael.
You were a great writer that blended science fact with science fiction and fantasy. We, your numerous readers, will miss you.
sooooo sorry for the lost of your loved one ...he will be missed !!!!thoughts and prayers r with the family at this sad time....teresa cruz (athens , ga)
you will be truly missed your work is excellent especially e r and jurasic park
You will be missed by every reader who entered your world of dreams and make-believe. Your books were well written and often inspirational. Best wishes to your family.
Our family became a fan with the Andromeda Strain and have collected all his books since. He will be missed in our book world,
Jurassic Park is my most favorite movie, but I am familiar with Mr.Crichton's other books and movies too (including "Coma").
I am so very sorry for your loss.
bummer! I started reading his books earlier this year. I really liked The Great Train Robbery. I also liked the classic concept of guy and girl falling for each other through the crucible of the plot in some others like Timeline. The science was exciting, and I liked the fact that he provided references. (I'm an engineer). My prayers go to his family and friends. I'm dissapointed not to read another good book.
The Original New York City Free Advice Man, JP Fenyo, wishes to express his sincere condolences and sadness upon the news of the departure of Michael Crichton, whose works provoked people to think about important and urgent issues. The world has too few of his calibre and genius.
He is the reason I started writing somemany years ago, he will be missed by so many.
To the Family, I am sorry I know that this is a hard time for you and yours. I can only hope that you had time to greive.
Deborah W (WA)
A great writer that inspired me in many ways in not just getting me to pick up a pen and write my own works, but also to think outside the box and pursue the sciences. His works kept my imagination fresh through High School and beyond. He'll be missed, but he'll live on in his works, fans, and most importantly in is family. My deepest sympathies to his family and friends. To quote one of his novels "life finds a way."
You are one of the best science fiction writer,
You'll be truly missed.
The world of movies, books and TV will never be the same. You had a true gift that will be missed by all. How fitting it's the last season of ER....
I am sorry for your loss. Cancer is a tough illness to get through. I never went a week without reading one of Michael's books. He was an excellent and talented writer. He will be missed.
I'm a bookworm, but mostly for biographies. Thanks to Mr. Crichton, I learned to LOVE fiction. Thank you so much for your gift. May you rest in peace.
I am so sad about his passing. It was this wonderful author that opened my eyes into reading books, and to turn off the tv. I remember in High School, I was given Sphere as a gift. I read that book in one sitting. I was so attached to it that I went out with my grandmother and bought another of his books the next day, Disclosure. After that, I started spending money to gather every book he had out up to date.
I left the country for a long time, and his books were hard to find. I came back a few years ago and had a family, started raising kids, work all day, and fell away from reading his books. I was out with my grandmother a month ago, and she pointed out his books and said "Dont you own all his books?" I said yes, but not the one she pointed too. She was so happy, she took his hardback off the shelf and paid for it at the register faster then I could reply. She handed it to me and said "Now you can start reading once again."
It's hard knowing that what she bought me is his second to last book, and that his last one will be out next year sometime. I was so hoping for many more years, and many more books from Mr. Crichton. It truly is a sad day for me, as I always wanted a chance to meet him and explain what he did for me in life as far as reading.
I am so sorry to see you go, but I guess the skies above need you now to entertain them with the many great stories you have to tell.
My prayers are with him and his family, I'll miss you deeply....
His books not only entertained, but educated. His life made a difference to a great many people.
Donna S (TX)
I 'M ALWAYS SO HAPPY WHEN I VIEW YOUR FILMS. THANKS FOR MAKING ME AND OTHERS SO HAPPY.
MY SYMPATHY TO THE CRICHTON FAMILY.
Crichton opened my eyes to the romance and adventure inherent to the sciences. I'm thankful for his many works during his time with us on this earth.
My heart goes out to the Crichton family & their circle of friends. I've read many of this man's books over the years, and although I never met him in person, I'm feeling a very strong sense of loss. This type of talent comes along once in a life time. My deepest sympathy to all.
To this day Jurassic Park is one my favorite reads of all time. Very few authors have the talent and creativity that Mr. Crichton had. Many of his books left a lasting impression on me like no other books or movies based on books ever could. Mr. Crichton you will truly be missed.
The first book I read by him was Jurassic Park. I could not put it down. Any author that can bring a book alive and make me think that this place could exist in real life is one who has a gift to write. You will be missed.
Michael Crichton was a great man, and will be remembered for many generations forward. His intellect defined his work and made it enjoyable by many. My sincere condolences to his family and friends.
one of the best writers ever.
A fascinating man, who brought a lot of wonderful things into the world. He won't be forgotten.
The most wonderful storyteller in the world. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Crichton family. He will be greatly missed.
thank you for your gifts. You will be sorely missed. I was saddened to hear of your passing, may you rest in peace!
Your books made me want to learn more about the subjects you would discuss. Nanotechnology, global warming, quantum physics, all were exciting. You will be truly missed! God Bless you Mr. Critchton.
A high school teacher assigned Jurassic Park to read and write a report. I couldn't put it down. I've read all of Mr. Crichton's books multiple times. I always looked forward to the next one. Thinking of the family, Mr. Crichton will be missed.
Thank you for all the wonderful stories that livened up everyone's imagination.
To Michael Crichton's family you have my prayers and thoughts with you at this sad time. You may take comfort in the fact that Mr. Crichton brought such joy though his work over the years.
Crichton was one of my favorite authors, whose novels I have read literally hundreds of times. He was truly a master storyteller of the highest order, and a consummate writer whose talents are unmatched. The literary world has lost another master. He will be missed.
RIP..The world has lost a wonderful man and a great story teller..Thank you for all the joy you have given to me every time I read one of your books.
Very much shocked to hear this very sad news.. Michael Crichton was a Master Story-teller, one of the Very Best, whose absence will leave an irreplaceable gap in modern literature. No-one else wrote such page-turning, un-put-downable and primarily thought-provoking books.. Almost used to postone reading the latest book until the last moment so as to be able to saviour them longer… Would have loved to have met this great man to spend time discussing with him his inspiration and plots…Condolences to the Crichton family for their sad loss.
I am sorry to hear that my favorite author has passed. Michael Crichton's books are one of a kind in that I learned so much while being entertained. I found out so much about DNA, virtual reality, nanotechnology and the like because of his books. I still watch ER to this day.
The world of entertainment-books, TV and movies-has lost a great storyteller. I will treasure his works even more now.
I've been reading MC since I was 8 years old. The first adventure I took through his writing was Jurassic Park, which I bought from the local bookshop, a couple of months after I had watched the movie and figured out that there was a book. Since then I've read most of his work, and I've grown up as a person who seeks a different perspective, as Michael himself has shown us that there's always two different faces to a coin.
Thank you Michael, for offering us your thoughts and insight coupled with wonderful writing and adventures, which surely have effected me as the maturing 20 year old I am today.
You will be missed and your memory cherished.
My condolences to all the family, you are in my thoughts.
I was captured by Michael Crichton's books when I realized just how much research he put into every one of them. I am truly saddened that his literary genius has come to an end. I will miss looking forward to more of his stories and extend my deepest sympathies to his family and friends. I am also sorry for those of us who will miss his dedication.
Rest in Peace, Michael. You will be sorely missed.
I was a big fan as soon as I read The Andromeda Strain and saw the movie. Thank you for all the enjoyment you provided me and my family through your books, movies, and the fabulous TV series ER. We will miss you.
I am so sad at the loss of this great writer, I loved all his books especially his book about his travels.
May God bless his soul.
I know that I'll miss his intelligent approach to sci fi , medicine and life.
Glad that I got to meet him but was dissappointed to learn, due to filming cost, that "Airframe", the sequel book to "Diclosure" would never be made into a movie...
I'm saddened by this loss. Michael was my favorite author and I will miss him much.
To the Crichton family~May you find comfort and peace in this time of sorrow.Please accept my condolences. Michael was a great writer and I love E.R., i've watched it since the beggining.
My husband and I were big fans. Our deepest sympathies to the family
This mans mind had many visitors. We felt welcome and listened to his stories in awe at where we were able to go, thanks to him. Accept our sincere sympathy. We all will miss him.
I started with JP at age 12 and have enjoyed many more of his novels ever since. If I had chosen writing as a profession it would have been heavily influenced by Mr. Crichton's style of incorporating just enough science to his fiction to make it believeable. He will be missed.
I have purchased all of Mr. Crichton's books, and have loved them all! I have even made two exceptions to my reading rules and purchased many of his books in hardcover and even purchased "Travels". Although I generally do not read biographies, "Travels" was a real page-turner. I am certain that he will be missed by all of his family and friends, and I, an avid reader, will truly miss the anticipation of his forthcoming projects.
God reached out and took your hand to the glorious beyond. We shall miss your incredible visions printed for us mere mortals. Our condolences to your wonderful family.
When I was 10 years old I picked up one of his books and have been a fan ever since. Now years later I would just like to say thank you to him for the wonderful stories he wrote and the intelligent subject matter that he brought up. My condolences go out to his family as well. May he rest in peace.
My favorite author of all time-for many years I would read nothing but his work. I always looked forward to the next adventure he would take me on...He is going to be deeply missed. My Deepest sympathies.
I am very sad to hear of Michael Crichton's passing. I used to give his books to my friends and even those who are not regular book readers enjoyed them thoroughly. There was always something new to learn as well as to enjoy. There will still be new readers for years to come. God Bless and condolences to his family.
The world has lost a great storyteller. RIP Michael.
I Love you novels, they are what kept me reading after high school. Makes me want to believe in Reincarnation so you could come back and continue writing.
My heart goes out to his family. Michael was my favorite author and I have been reading his books since i was 10. Without him I probably wouldn't have gotten into books as soon as I did or develope an interest in science, which my degree is in.
May you rest in peace Mr. Crichton. You've blessed us with many amazing books that were truly enjoyable to read.
Today we have lost a giant who was a beacon of quintessential American imagination and blended great story telling with groundbreaking scientific frontiers that all of us could understand+follow his mind bending leaps in imagination.
A very sad day and, ironically, a huge loss on one of the most hopeful day for this country in a generation.
You will be sorely missed but your legacy will live on forever in this world. Towards that, I, for one, plan to introduce my 10 year old son(and soon my 8 year old daughter) to your work with a tremendous sense of urgency. I'm hoping that my son, who wants to be an author, and many like him, will be able to carry your "imagination" baton forward in this world.
I absolutely loved his work... He is gone way too early. May God bless your family
I am so sad to hear of this loss. Thank you for the many many many hours of great reading and the stories that boggled my mind. Rest in Peace, Sir.
Every one of his books left me wanting more! My heart is with the Crichton family.
Our thoughts and prayers are with your family. We thank you so much for bringing us such thrilling works of fiction. I thoroughly enjoyed every book that I have read from you. They allowed me to look at how our world is constantly changing and question the validity of many of the "facts" we take for granted.
You're writing and work will be missed by this long time fan. Thank you.
I've started reading your books when I was only 9 years old and a book of yours was my favourite prize when I got a good mark at school.
I learned a lot, I had so much fun and I passed wonderful hours reading and reading again each one of your exciting and clever works.
I never had the honour to meet you, but today I feel like I've lost a good friend.
Thank you for everything you gave to us.
We'll miss you.
Rest In Peace, Michael!
My deepest sympathies to the family. Mr. Crichton will be deeply missed.
Dr. Crichton may you rest with the angels. Thank you for your many contributions to our society. Your passing leaves a deep void in our hearts and minds and I extend my sympathy to your family and friends.
I am deeply saddened by Mr. Crichton?s passing. He was an inspiration to me and a hero. He helped the world see through a new point of view and promoted creativity. He was a genius who meshed science and fiction, not to be confused with science fiction. He pushed the limits and explored the realm of possibility.
you were my fav author Michael. i have all your books.
Tom Wright (Toronto, Ontario, Canada)
Your insights and ability to guide readers to question assumptions on topics of popular science through your novels always kept me anticipating your next.
Wow! What a tremendous loss for Americans at this time! Mr. Crichton will truly be remembered as one of the greatest science fiction/thriller/fantasy writers of the 20-21st century. He will be truly missed for he has and will continue to inspire authors to write for generations to come. My greatest sympathies to the family and friends of this truly beloved man.
I am remarkably saddened by the passing of a person that I didn't even know...
A great writer is in heaven now. God bless you for sharing with us.
REST IN PEACE MICHAEL CRICHTON
I read all of your books and loved every single one...your imagination and word craft were spectacular. You will be sorely missed - thoughts and prayers go out to your family.
Where will we go without our Teacher? Who else could have been so precient of the types and dangers of Scientific Discovery, and the need to step back - and ask "why?"
I wish I had met you. I wish I could have had just five minutes with your intellect, and your profane humanity. I've learnt so much, and followed so closely in your footsteps it seems as if you were behind me all the way. I have questions unaswered, and descisions yet to make. Where will I now go for guidance now I will never have the chance to ask.
I thank-you for what you've left behind, and for what I can revise. Maybe it's all in there anyway.
Sleep well, and pleasant dreams.
Thank you for your books, Mr. Crichton. They were truly thought provoking and entertaining.
I've enjoyed your work over the years. You are one of my favorite writers. I could always count on you for a good story. Godspeed.
Condolences and regards to Mr. Crichton's family and much appreciation to Mr. Crichton for the hours of reading enrichment and enjoyment he provided me in my life.
you gave us thrills, and took us into a time we never thought imaginable. thanks for the journey.
Your thrilling and suspense filled words are your legacy you will leave me and I will never forget you because of them...thank you Michael and God Bless the Crichton Family at this time
