Not sure what to say?

I enjoyed watching you on Survivor, you were my fave. Thank you and your family for your service in our US Navy. My thoughts and prayers for your family and friends.

I am sorry regarding the loss of your loved one. May the God of Comfort, continue to comfort the family.

Rudy Boesch was a true American hero and an inspiration to many when we were first introduced to him on "Survivor" back in 2000. On the immunity challenge that he lost, it was due to an error, not because he gave up. Rudy was the kind of man who never gave up and was the most deserving person to win Survivor. Had Rudy not accidentally let his hand go on the immunity challenge, there is no doubt that Rudy Boesch would have been the first winner of Survivor. America loved and...

I had the pleasure of meeting Rudy a number of times and the opportunity to have a few cold ones with him. What an amazing individual. Those who I know that knew him and served with him have fantastic stories to tell.

I will always remember seeing him talk at the SEAL Heritage Center. Those who were there know how he spoke and how the top brass and state reps blushed.

He was a great man and I will always cherish the the memories.

That you for all that you...

In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always. May god BE WITH Rudy family.

I had the pleasure of meeting Rudy on several occasions thru my brother Master chief Pierre Ponson ( SEAL team 2). I found him to be great guy and a true American patriot. The NavSpec war community lost a legend. He will be missed, RIP Rudy!

My condolences to the family of Rudy Boesch for your loss.

Losing a loved one to death is hard. My sympathy to Rudy 's family, and may they treasure their happy memories.

I had the honor to meet Rudy at the 2001 polar plunge and saw him on survivor twice. Him and his wife were very friendly at the plunge. Shortly before I adopted my rabbit I began thinking of names and that is when I remembered him so thank you Rudy for the inspiration behind my rabbits name.
