Morley and I went to the same high school — but about forty odd years apart. I only discovered this recently, but having watched Mr. Safer on “60 Minutes” over the years, I always felt that he was a part of my life. He is sorely missed by many of us, for was truly one of the ‘Greats’. Belated condolences to Mr. Safer’s family — may he Rest In Peace.

Thank you Morley and 60 Minutes for the many interesting stories that you have featured over the years. You have always shown us something unique to your own perspective which I have only come to know today is originally Canadian. I should have known by the manner in which you conducted your interviews. I will miss you Morley as I have the others before you that have since departed. Enjoy the viewing from the other side and keep smiling upon us!

i had the pleasure of meeting morley in the mid 90's when he came to a tree farm that i worked at in lebanon, ct. he wanted some privet bushes for his home in chester. he arrived with a dark green chevy truck and a custom made cap on the back. it was tan canvas, almost like a wooden wagon would have in little house on the prarie. he said he had it made at an awning shop. i sat on his tailgate, smoked one of his cigarettes and thought to myself, "how neat to meet the man i heard every sunday night growing up from my bedroom and early bedtime." very neat down to earth human being. kevin maines storrs, ct.

Morley Safer as well as the 60 Minutes original men were like a 'staple' in our house when I was growing up. Now that I'm married over 30 years, it's continued in my home every Sunday night, unless it was football season or March Madness, then you had trouble zeroing in on its take off. Mr. Safer told us what was going on in Vietnam when not much was coming from our enlisted family or news. Thank you, Morley, for always tickling my interest; gosh, you'll be missed. God Bless him and his family who has been left behind. And on Sunday nights, when I hear that ticking of the clock, I will always remember the men who forged through many a storm to bring us the story. Thank you, Mr. Safer, job well done. Tonight, God will have good company when we hear the ticking.

Having just seen and enjoyed the 60 Minutes retirement tribute to Mr. Safer on Sunday, I was totally surprised and shocked to learn that he had passed away, within days, on Thursday. What a remarkable man and life! I well remember him, first and foremost, on the evening news reporting from the field in Viet Nam. I would have to say Mr. Safer was just as brave as he was an incredible journalist. Truly an amazing life and career. My heartfelt condolences to his family with prayers that God will comfort you in your time of grief. Also, may the special thoughts and remembrances from Mr. Safer's viewers remind you of the numerous friends he gleaned in this world during his evening TV visits into our living rooms.

So pleased to say I had the opportunity to meet Mr. Safer in what seems a lifetime ago when he came to Miami University in Oxford, OH. He stayed at the guest lodge attached to the building where I worked. He kindly checked in with me and kindly signed an autograph. Enjoyed a coffee hour with a small group of folks following his major talk. A very interesting and generous man. What a career and life! To his family and friends, you have my deepest and most heartfelt sympathy!
