Truly saddening news.
I always respected the fact that he came here on the boards and conversed with us fans as if he were one of us.
My sympathies to his family and friends.

Hi Bubba here, I, along with the many other Monk fans are deeply sadden to hear this news. I read recently here, that Mr. Kamel just got over the flu and was feeling better. I know all of us would like to send out our thoughts and prayers to his family and friends. He will be missed deeply. :(

I am so deeply shocked and saddened by this news. My heart-felt condolences and prayers go to all those who knew and loved him best.

I only knew Mr. Kamel through watching him on television and by what he said on this board, and I feel like I lost a dear friend.

On a personal note, I got to meet Stanley when he came to the USA offices to do his live web chat, and remember how kind, funny, and patient he was during a process that was fairly new for all of us. I'm very saddened that we won't be able to do it again.

Oh no, this is terrible news and so unexpected. My deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends. Stanley was a much loved character on the series and his willingness to come here and post made him a part of our Monk family. He will certainly be missed by all of us.

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Sleep well, sweet Stanley; you'll not be forgotten by us. :wub:

This was shocking. He hasn't been looking too healthy recently and I hold out hope that his passing was peaceful. I am deeply saddened, and my sympathy goes out to his family. He was, by all accounts, a good man and a great actor. One thing I admired greatly, as someone has already pointed out in a previous post, was that he came in here on occasion and posted as though he was just like the rest of us. That was a testament to his character and good nature. He will be sorely missed.

I can hardly come to grips with this news. So very shocking and sad. My heart goes out to his family. He seemed like such a great guy. He came here to talk to us fans, that was something special. He is missed already. :(

Such a tragic shock to find this news here today. His contribrition will be sorely missed that he made to the Monk show and the lives of the people involved with it, friends and fans alike.
Words seem inadequate to do justice to this sad situation that caught so many unawares. It would seem that he will be remembered as a kind and generous soul who enriched the lives of many.
