A human that done so much for mankind and the world of mankind. I have many, many memories of Czechoslovakia and visits to relatives there. Rest in peace V. H.
Vaclav, you were that rare combination of charm and grit, of savoir vivre and substance, of hepcat and warrior. God rest your soul.
My deepest sympathy and condolences to the family. Love to all from Chicago.
(This poem was written in 2007 as a final parting to individuals who have made inspirational contributions to their people and to the world. It is to be recited slowly, strongly and rhythmically)
Farewell good Vaclav
Earth and sky are calling.
Farewell fair and noble friend,
The parting hour
Has tolled its bell,
The parting hour is come
When we must turn
And set you free
Into the arms of eternity.
Farewell good friend, farewell.
Your deeds have changed us,
Your days have lived in us
That we must speak the flame they lit,
Our fullest thought, our fullest sigh-
What beat that heart
Will live forever,
What filled those veins
Can never die.
Farewell again, farewell.
And even though our heads are down
Even though our grief is full,
The stirrings in us stir again-
No dark can fall upon you,
No dark will come upon your way
As you journey, on and on,
Into the water of sunset,
Into the milk of dawn.

May your family feel comfort at Christmas
A great man. May he rest in peace and be emulated by others.
Men like Vaclav will forever be remembered for cutting short a horrible life under communist rule. Thousands are grateful for giving them freedom and the ability to make their own choicest in a land that they love. I look forward when one day there will be no more communist countries and all persons can experience this freedom under one government. Dan 2:44. What a delight that will be...peace earth wide. Pm 27:29.
a truly brave man! Valiant, inspiring and fearless regardless of possible consequences. We salute him for his life,s accomplishments. He lived for what he believed in. A true fighter for freedom. We will miss his charm and warmth. May he rest in peace now!
President Vaclav was a true inspiration to freedom loving people everywhere. I still remember the joy in the streets of Prague and the masses of people rattling their keys in a show of solidarity with the Velvet Revolution. He will be remembered as one of the true champions of peace and freedom in the twentieth century.
President Vaclav spent his life fighting and upholding freedom. He led the Velvet Revolution in a peacful way. Even though the world is filled with different governments and opinions, God promises that we will all have freedom on a worldwide scale. For Isaiah 2:4 says "And he will certainly render judement among the nations and set matters straight respecting many peoples. And they will have to beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning shears. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, neither will they learn war anymore." At that time the peaceful fight that Mr.Havel led, will be exhibited in a manner that we could never have imagined.
I remember the "Velvet Revolution" and I think that's when I realized fully some people not only talk the talk but they also walk the walk, even risking death. THIS, and not some rock star or sports figure, is what makes a REAL HERO.
My paternal grandparents were born in Prauge. My grandmothers maiden name was Havel; Anna Rose Havel. One day, visiting Prague is on my bucket list. My dreams of meeting Vaclav Havel have been erased, but I still plan on visiting his beautiful city.
The world has lost A great man.A poet and a dreamer and a politician.My warmest condolence to Havel family and nation.

May he rest in peace. May his memory live in the hearts of his countrymen. The world has lost a great hero. My thoughts are with his family.
Tibet and His Holiness the Dalai Lama has lost a true friend. We Tibetans thank you for supporting us. Om mani padme hum.
I was blessed to have met Mr. Havel during his visit to Lehigh University several years ago. He once wrote, "In the darkest days of my life, burning in my heart was the sense that I was brought into the world for a reason." Vaclav came to light the fire and because of his persistence and his vision, freedom came to the country of my grandparents. You have made the world a better place for having passed our way; God could not have given us a more chersihed gift. God bless and may you rest in peace; may your family find comfort in knowing you lived your life so well while challenging each of us to be a better person! Thank you, Vaclav - well done good and faithful servant.
Some men have knowledge and wisdom along with humility. We love them and we cry when we lose them. The Bible says at Eccl 1:15-18 "That which is made crooked cannot be made straight, and that which is wanting cannot possibly be counted. I, even I, spoke with my heart, saying: “Look! I myself have greatly increased in wisdom more than anyone that happened to be before me in Jerusalem, and my own heart saw a great deal of wisdom and knowledge.” And I proceeded to give my heart to knowing wisdom and to knowing madness, and I have come to know folly, that this too is a striving after wind. For in the abundance of wisdom there is an abundance of vexation, so that he that increases knowledge increases pain.
I hope your family has peace.
Godspeed, Vaclav Havel. The world is a better place for your having lived.

To the Havel family -
I want to express my condolences on the loss of Vaclav Havel. I am of Slovak heritage and had the honor of visiting Czechslovakia in 1982 when it was still under communism. My mother's parents actually came from Hungary, as Czechslovakia was not founded.
He did alot as President of Czechslovakia. I was glad to see the country come out from under communist rule.

Vaclav Havel was a great play write, a great statesman, and a splendid human being. He was stead fast friend of dissidents and prisoners of conscience. Had the opportunity to meet him on three occasions and was humbled by both his humility and greatness. The world is a lesser place with his absence. My condolences to his family and friends.
Thank you, Mr. Havel, for making the world a better place.
I would like to send my condolence to the family and colleagues of former Czech President Vaclav Havel, who passed away on 18th December 2011 at the age of 75.
Vaclav Havel was a respected permanent supporter of human rights and democracy in Burma. He was an outstanding worker of human rights and democracy as well as strong supporter of Aung San Suu Kyi, the leader of Burma's democracy movement. People will not forget his involvement in establishing of the Charter 77. People will always tribute to his extraordinary essay -“The Power of the Powerless" - as a landmark of history. He set up a tradition of human rights in the foreign policy of Czech Republic that encouraging struggles of human rights in Burma.
People have lost a great human-rights promoter and defender not only for Burma but also for the whole world. People will deeply miss him for his great deeds!

The salvation of this human world lies nowhere else than in the human heart, in the human power to reflect, in human meekness and human responsibility.
