    Did anyone see that remembering Dr. Kroger/Stanley Kamel commercial on USA? I almost cried.

    It just aired a few minutes ago. May Mr. Kamel rest in blessed peace.

    His character was such the calm within a storm, it's hard imagining how the loss will be dealt with.

    As sad as this is, the show will carry on and continue to do well. When Sharona left, it seemed like the end and the show is even stronger yet with the Natalie character. While Dr. Kroger was a great cast member, he was not part of the inner circle of Monk, Natalie, Disher and the Captain. But that resource of Monk using his counselling sessions to talk about the cases was to great, I am sure they will want to continue it.

    It is truly sad to see a great person to go and all of sudden.

    That's so sad. I hope they don't just replace Dr Kroger with another actor, I hate when they do that. RIP.

    I didn't find out about his passing until the season started. I was so shocked that I got on my PC and started searching for articles about his death. I was so sad to hear about it. He was amazing on Monk and I had seen him in alot of other things. I loved his ways of handling Monk and his issues. Going to miss him very much. What a total loss of a great talent. Prayers are with his family and friends.
