After I lost my job and went on to another grueling job, and then another grueling job where I travel, I would always watch Parts Unknown, Sunday evenings, as a special treat for me. I loved the upbeat positivity of embracing and learning about the world we live in. I, too, have fought, and continue to fight depression; it is not for the faint of heart and completely get how he could have had a weak moment and succumbed.

Anthony, I developed such a crush on you.....
There was such a feeling of doing something adventurous thru you. Even having traveled quite a bit myself, it was very different. You on my TV, you in my living room, you in my life. Living thru you visiting exotic locations, eating scrumptious food, bantering with people across the world. What a great escape if not for an hour. Thank you for your gifts, your candle burned so bright, may your warmth live on thru humanity❤

The world needs more like you. Odd, outspoken, fresh ideas, a bit of humor, a realist willing to try anything. You have definitely gone way to soon.

RIP.... you will be missed.
