To the O'Brien Family
As all of you, the world is in awe at Chris's passing. I would never miss an episode of RPA and particularly loved watching Chris with his endearing and compassionate ways. What a loving dedicated man, who will be missed by the world. He was obviously one of a kind as there was no one to save him. I have a tear every time I read about Chris's passing. I can assure you the pain does become easier with time, the memories become sweet and you never forget the good times.
Professor...U left your mark in this world.

Dr. Chris

What a remarkable man you were. We are so much poorer for your passing.

Thank you so much

When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom filled roon
Why cry for a soul set free?

Miss me a little - but not too long
And not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love we once shared
Miss me - but let me go.

For this is a journey we all must take,
And each must go alone.
It's all a part of the Master's plan,
A step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick of heart
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds.
Miss Me - But Let Me Go!

To Gail and family
My sympathy and prayers to you at this sad time. Dr. Chris was an inspiration to all Australians and his selfless contribution to cancer research and cancer support is an extrordinary legacy. He was a wonderful role model, a man of courage and honour, of great love...a gentleman. From the first moment my family saw him on RPA, we were deeply touched by his profound humanity, his genuine empathy and care for his patients and his humility and enduring compassion. He became our favourite doctor!
He will be so greatly missed. May God hold him gently in the palm of his hand and may you find peace and comfort in your memories of this wonderful Australian.

My heart felt sympathy and prayers to Mrs O'Brien and Adam, Juliette and James on the passing of your wonderful husband and father. I did not know Professor O'Brien personally, but I have read his book and am a regular viewer of RPA and I know that he was a truely wonderful human being, with qualities we should all aspire to achieve.

To Gail, The Amazing Wife of "Dr Gorgeous",
I would just like to pass on my sincere condolences to both your own family as well as your extended family. I was there for the funeral and was apart of the choir at Parramatta Marist. I am not only inspired by Chris, but by you Gail simply because of how strong you were. You came to the funeral wanting to celebrate the life of an indescribable man. I don't know what happened, but Chris did prepare you extremely well for his death. You said an excellent speech and i will never forget it. You truly are testament to a wonderful man and this is why your role as being Chris' wife is so important. I struggle to find someone as strong and composed as you. Truly inspirational family. The funeral was great and by the way it was my first funeral. I came willingly to the funeral to honor such a 'selfless' man.

What an inspirational man. I will someday work at The Chris O'Brien Centre as a head and neck surgeon unless there isn't a shortage. As Chris wanted to make an impact and help where expertise was slim, so will I working in another department where the need is greater.

I am inspired and hope to meet you in the distant future. I am only 14 years old but am almost positive i will meet either you Gail or your family.
