July 20, 2015 "James Tate's writings were so inspiring and so full of meaning. I am so happy that he was recognized and rewarded for his gift. My earnest petition is that the promise of endless life in Paradise free of sickness and suffering for James proves to be both comforting and reassuring to loved ones left behind. My condolences!" - Dianne
July 15, 2015 "Expressing my condolences to the Tate family. Death is a very painful process know that we can endure with the help of God's comfort and his word. Romans15:4" - D Tyler (MS)
July 13, 2015 "Our condolences to Mr. Tate's family. We thank him for his beautiful poetry." - (Charlotte, NC)
July 12, 2015 "How sad to lose such a wonderful poet, such an influence on so many, and such a good friend. I remember his whacky sense of humor, and his wonderful eye to spot and support the overlooked, the crazy detail and irony on our lives, and to poke a bit at the falseness that sometimes invades our lives. My sympathies to Dara and her children too.
Rick, TN"
