Not sure what to say?

Reading your novels has helped me with my depression and anxiety. I was hoping one day to thank you for everything you have done to help me. I hope your wife and son are happy and safe, although I know there lives will not be the same without you. I hope you know the lasting impact your novels have had on others and everything you have done to help them with the same things you dealt with. I also hope people continue to find your novels and help them to get through the difficulties they are...

I probably wouldn't be alive if I hadn't read "It's Kind of a Funny Story". I was hoping to meet you one day to thank you for indirectly saving me, but perhaps in another life. I hope you found your peace, you will be so dearly missed.

My Sympathy goes out to the family and friends of Ned Vizzini for your loss. May you look forward to the future, as it is filled with hope from God, that one day those who have fallen asleep in death, will hear his voice and rise up. John 5:25 -

You're always with me, Ned. You are a great inspiration and a kind soul. I hope you found solace in the end.

Thinking of you often, and missing you always. Rest well, ned.

Mr. Vizzini's death was an impact upon me; I read of it in the New York Times and Long Island Newsday. Soon in 2013, I wrote a blog post focusing on suicide and giving a note to his passing.
The blog site was deleted online. But the cartoons (from that blog site) I drew about suicide were saved and later published in my first book, 57 Pages: A Short Book of Thought Motivating Cartoons.
One of the key qualities I appreciate about Ned with his books he was reaching out to help...

His book changed my life. Wish there was a grave or memorial to visit.

Thanks ned for writing a book that helped me get through my tough times, I'm sorry you couldn't get through yours
