      Many Oprah fans sent in comments thanking Oprah for her enthusiasm, informative shows and generosity. Besides wishing her the best of luck, viewers praised Oprah for getting them through difficult times.

      Jazzyjane on Monday wrote: "Not before your show Oprah had I found any TV show that expanded my mind, brought me to tears (happy and sad), how to buy a bra!, eat healthy, lose weight (still trying) and take time for myself. I will miss you and your entire staff who made the show's my DO NOT DISTURB it's 4:00 p.m. 'me time.'"

      Another viewer, Majormom, wrote: "When I joined the service I had her by my side. When I went on an assignment without my family, she kept me company on the lonely days and nights for over one year. And most importantly when I was medically retired from the military I prayed with Oprah that everything would be alright for me and my kids."

      On Tuesday, diana.legal wrote this touching farewell:{}"We will miss your enthusiasm and gentility. Your shows have been informative, uplifting, soul-searching and created an awakening to those in need. Many people have benefited from your kindness and generosity. On behalf of all, I would like to say thank you for the years of sharing with all of America. As my favorite Aunt would have said, "you are building a large mansion in heaven." We will not say goodbye, just I will see you later."

      Missing U, who self-identifies as a "true fan," wrote: "Oprah, you are my she-ro. I can't express how much you will be missed. I have recorded your shows faithfully for the past 4 years and have watched the Oprah show faithfully for many many years. I'm encouraged by you and know that if I put my mind to it, my dreams will come true just as your dreams have come true..."

No one else but you could do that! I know even when your last show ends, your legacy will go on.
