My deepest condolences to Mr. Tyler's family. He is gone much too young. His role as Gunther on "Friends" will always be near and dear to me. He made viewers like me laugh and sigh at the same time. He hit just the right notes of unrequited love...longing, desire, perpetual disappointment, anger, and a perfect dash of humor + what glorious hair!

What can one say in a few words about someone they never personally met and yet had such a joyous impact on their life? I was saddened to learn of Mr. Tyler's passing as I was hopeful his health challenge could somehow improve. He truly brought joy to my life in his role as Gunther. How many of us could relate to Gunther as he played that role with such precision. My condolences to his family and friends. You were special, Mr. Tyler.

James Michael Tyler was excellent on Friends as Gunther the manager of Central Perk coffee shop. Friends is my favorite TV show and I love the scenes where they go to hang out at Central Perk. I will forever miss his humor as I watch Friends.
