Thank you Mr Schwartz, for all the years of entertainment, both Gilligans island and The Brady Bunch. I only wish my grandchildren could have the same kind of wholesome tv shows as I had when I was growing up. Thank you Thank you
July 18, 2011
The Brady Bunch and Gilligan's Island are great shows. I am a young woman in my twenties, but my family and I still watch the re-runs of those shows. These shows are funny, and wholesome something that is a rarity in television today. I know that Mr. Schwartz will be greatly missed by his family and friends. I hope that the family finds comfort from the Bible in particular the scripture at Job 14:14-15. My prayers are with the family, and God bless.

Dear Mr.Sherwood Swartz, Thanks for bringing us great television programs, you will be greatly missed. May you rest in peace and all of Heaven rejoice.
July 18, 2011
I had the great good fortune to attend a panel discussion with the cast of Gilligan's Island in the mid 1980's. What a nice and very professional group of actors. Mr. Schwartz was very friendly and kind to all of the children who were in awe of their TV idols. I am sure they have been asked the same questions thousands of times but as each person raised their hand, everyone in the group answered as if it had been the first. I deeply admired Mr. Schwarts as he insisted his children all go to college and get degrees before they pursue careers in show business. Classy family. Thanks very much for the smiles. Shalom
July 18, 2011
My two favorite childhood shows that you created are the memories to my soul hours and hours of time I sat and watched the Brady Bunch and Gilligan's Island.It was good clean T.V. and will live on for many more genarations to come thank you May God bless you and your loved ones.

July 18, 2011
When we were young we could hardly wait for the Brady Bunch to come on every Friday night. When it went it to reruns my 8 siblings and I would have a contest on who could name the episode the fastest. You made us laugh with both shows; that is when TV was TV. Thank you and God Bless your family
July 18, 2011

July 17, 2011
Gilligan's Island and Brady Bunch will live on in the hearts of us baby boomers. I would like to share two stories related to Gilligan's Island. First, my sister lost her husband to cancer when he was just 24 years old, leaving her a widow at age 20 with a baby girl to raise alone. For a time she moved back home with my parents and me. One afternoon, my sister and I were watching the show, and it was the one where Gilligan said to Mrs. Howell: "This time I got to the nose before I blew it!" My sister let out a loud laugh that I hadn't heard from her since she lost her husband. Second, I married into an abusive relationship. Watching GI was one of the times I actually laughed and felt good about myself. I also love Brady Bunch and it's time tested standards, which are nearly non-existent in today's television shows. Farewell, Mr. Schwartz. God bless your family, and may you make 'em laugh in heaven.
July 17, 2011
Dear Schwartz Family hello there my name is Faith Tobin and I'd like to express my condolences's to the Family for his passing on.he'll be surely missed.luv,Faith

July 17, 2011
Farewell to one of the best comedy writers in modern times. Sympathies to
his family and those who remember and
value him as a father and mentor.
July 17, 2011
Thank you for the great shows from a great producer. Mr. Sherwood Schwartz rest in peace.
July 17, 2011
I believe the reason the professional critics did not like the show was because they were rating the comedy. There were many facets to the shows though, that spoke to others, like family values, plausible plots, and so on. Professional critics don't pay me to laugh. It comes from the heart. I never paid a penny for any of these shows, and yet I obtained great value. I did not get what I paid for in these shows. I paid nothing and got everything. What a great value. How many millions were taught the value of togetherness and happiness by these shows? By the way, those theme songs, I think were written my Mr. Shwartz. And they have a very outstanding melody and entertaining accompanying lyrics. Creative genius shared with milliions. Thank you very much for all you created and shared with the world.
July 16, 2011
The world has lost a talented man.i thank him for bringing laughter into my life and millions of others.gilligans island will forever be in my heart thanks to sherwood Schwartz...and his farewell letter brought tears to my eyes

My father Hugh Wedlock and both Al and Sherwood worked together for many years.

My heart goes out to the family. Fondly, Ellen Wedlock Wetenkamp

Sherwood Schwartz was difinitely a household name for all of us when we were younger, It takes me back to when I was a little girl. I believe Gilligan Island was probably repeats in the earlies 70's and the Brady Bunch. What a great writer He was. Many will remember him through his Art. May the God or tender mercies and the God of comfort, " 1 Cor 1:3,4 comfort the Schwartz family at this sad time.

I loved both Gilligan's Island and The Brady Bunch. I still stop to watch either when I channel surf across them. When I was little, I'd come home from grade school, Grandmother would have my favorite meal - salmon, rich and homemade biscuits - and I would sit in front of the television and watch the antics of Gilligan. Good times.
July 14, 2011
What a talented man where millions upon millions of people have enjoyed his work. Thank you! God bless the Schwartz family as he leaves behind a great, rarely seen, wholesome work.

Sherwood Schwartz has the same hope as the wise man Job did. He asked: “If an able-bodied man dies can he live again? All the days of my compulsory service I shall wait, until my relief comes. You will call, and I myself shall answer you. For the work of your hands you will have a yearning." Like Job we can all look forward to a time when God will call and we will answer.

Thank you so much for making my weekly TV series growing up as a teenager in the '60s. I come from a large family where Gilligan's Island and The Brady Bunch was part of our viewing. My thoughts and prayers are with your Family.
July 13, 2011
My condolences to the Schwartz family. I met Sherwood and his wife on a tour of Europe back in the 1980's and was fortunate enough to have dinner with them one evening. I will never forget how delightful he was, and funny! He was one of those few people who could make you feel as if you were his oldest friend! I knew he was famous, and I was thrilled to meet him, but he was not affected or pompous in the least.
May God bless Sherwood Schwartz, he gave us all so many laughs and good times!
July 13, 2011
Thank you for sharing your talents with the masses over the years. We need many, many more Sherwood Schwartzs! Enjoy your new life, and please continue to inspire us!!!
July 13, 2011
(to the tune of the Gilligan's Island theme song):
"Thank you, Sherwood Schwartz

We Always will love you!
We Always will love you!"
July 13, 2011
he was a great writer. loved his shows.

I am 57 and remember a lot of them.
July 13, 2011
There isn't a childhood memory of television that doesn't have some reference to the Brady Bunch (I too am a middle child and could relate to poor Jan). Though in retrospect it may appear to be fluffy and unrealistic, the Brady family did a lot for young people and Mr. Schwartz had a hand in that. The world suffers a loss today. To the Schwartz family and friends, my condolences for your loss. Atlanta, Georgia
July 13, 2011
What a talented man!
July 13, 2011

July 13, 2011
Once upon a time, we had tv shows our kids could watch, and we parents had no fears in what they would see or hear. As a matter of fact, we watched With them. You must have been very proud, to be part of the life of a man who had the insight and wisdom to make that possible. God bless you all, and may He hold you close. The Bible says to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Please keep that thought close in heart. My name would mean nothing - but this comes from just one of the many who appreciated his works.
July 13, 2011
Please accept my sympathy for your loss. During this time, may all be comforted by the wonderful hope: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more. Neither mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."
July 13, 2011
Because of the Schwartz family, I was very much intertained and had a happy childhood. Thank you, and God Bless.

What can you really say about a man like him? How enjoyable and funny and the countless hours I have been entertained by his shows. I grew up on those syndicated shows and still enjoy them to this day. My kids like them too. Hollywood really cannot afford to lose talent so this will leave a gaping hole in the cosmos there.
God bless the family and friends, I mourn your loss with you.
Thank you, Mr. Schwartz!
July 13, 2011
Thank you, Mr. Schwartz! I loved Gilligan's Island and The Brady Bunch (they remain a guilty pleasure of mine to this very day)! Television history would have been very different without your contributions!

So much of my childhood revolved around your creations as did so much of my childhood laughter. You will be remembered by many.
July 13, 2011
Many thanks to Mr Schwartz for providing light fare for many people who needed it in times of extreme stress in this country. You were a genius..
July 13, 2011
My sincere condolences on the loss of a successful giant of television. May God guide you in your sorrow. His words of comfort are written in the scriptures at 2 Cor. 1:3, 4.
July 13, 2011
Thanks for the memories. May you rest in peace.
July 13, 2011
As a child growing up in the '60s, and a teen in the '70s, I never cared that "Gilligan" or the "Brady's" didn't have social significance, watching them made me happy! And isn't that one of the greatest gifts...the gift of joy and laughter? Mr. Schwartz may not have been Shakespeare, but I think many more people can sing the theme from "Gilligan's Island" than can quote "The Merchant of Venice." He touched our lives, and our hearts.

May he rest in peace.
July 13, 2011
REST IN PEACE
July 13, 2011
Thank you Mr. Schwartz for all the wonderful childhood laughs and memories I have from your work. You will be remembered for years to come and you will live on in all of us.

I was a little kid who played "Gilligan's Island" with neighborhood kids in the early 19070s. Then we would pretend we were Brady kids. So much fun, so much imaginative play inspired by a creator who knew audiences better than the critics ever could. Thank you, Mr. Schwartz. Rest in peace.
July 12, 2011
Many many thanks to you Mr. Schwartz, I have to say how much I appreciate your talent with the creation of Gilligans Island. It was the first thing I looked forward to every weekday after getting off of the hot school bus.My sister and I had a particularly long bus ride every day since we always lived so far out of town,And Gilligan,And the rest of the gang Always kept me entertained with the cooky stranded seven on Gilligans Island. Rest in Peace my friend.

Mr. Schwartz will be greatly missed. He was such an amazing and giving person. Not only did he give us two of the most beloved shows on television, but just this March he gave me an hour of his day so I could film him for an appearance in the short movie I made to propose to my girlfriend (now fiance) with. The idea that anyone would allow a college student struggling to make it into the television industry themselves into their home still astounds me. Especially since he was 94. The hour I was able to spend with him will be one I will remember forever. Growing up in a world filled with vulgar television, I was always drawn to Gilligan's Island and the Brady Bunch, and Mr. Schwartz was someone I looked up to greatly. I am so grateful for his amazing generosity. Thank you Mr. Schwartz, you will always be my hero, not just because of your success, but because of the amazing person that I learned you were even off the set. I will be keeping you and your family in my prayers.

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

When I was growing up in Studio City, CA in the 1950's and 1960's, Sherwood and Mildred Schwartz were our neighbors. Their sons Don and Lloyd were particular friends of my sister and I. All of the family was warm and loving, not to mention very talented.
