Sad news.
My heart goes out to all of you are students of this great master. I was fortunate enough myself to meet and take teachings/empowerments from him.
The blog link below contains the official statement from PBC.

My memories of Rinpoche are phenomenal. He had the outward initial appearance of a nice/cute little old man, but the moment he started teaching he was powerful and awe-inspiring. For those of you who didnt have the opportunity to meet him, his brother Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche is also an amazing teacher and the PBC sangha is welcoming and wonderful.
I highly recommend paying them a visit.

From the link above:

In order to remember the sublime qualities of our most kind and humble teacher, here are a few excerpts from A Praise of the Venerable Lama Called the Melodious Words of the Ocean of Devotion, that Khenpo Pema Gyaltsen composed in the late 1990’s:

“Although dwelling primordially in the expanse of Samantabhadra,
You possess the magical display of most glorious Vajrakumara.
Maturing and liberating whomever, incomprehensible protector,
All-victorious embodiment of wisdom, to the lama I bow down.

From the rich, fertile soil of your positive merit and generosity,
The sweet smell of saffron arisen from your ethical discipline pervades.
Sovereign of realization arisen from meditation, full bloom of spring,
Endowed with the three grounds of positive merit, to the lama I bow down.

Steadfast, constant root of the wish-granting tree of the four immeasurables,
Luxuriant, full blossom of the activities of the six perfections,
Tending after others, the fruit of the four bodhisattva activities,
Beneficial action, glorious protector, to the lama I bow down.

Having abandoned long ago the obstacles to all objects of knowledge,
Teaching all the ways of Dharma to disciples of good fortune,
Just like a second Lord of Conquerors in the teachings of the Conqueror,
Bliss-gone one with perfect skill in the ten powers, to the lama I bow down.

The most beautiful moon, Manjushri, the wisdom of exalted knowledge,
Coming from the awakened mind of Chenrezig, the great compassion,
Just like Vajrapani, the power and might both unchallenged and unrivaled,
Living countenance that gathers the three families, savior, to the lama I bow down.

Listening, contemplation, and meditation, the three, vast as the rich Earth,
Teaching, debate, and composition, the three, resounding music everywhere,
Knowledge, virtue, and goodness, the three, dramatic play of Samantabhadra,
Perfect monarch of these nine excellent manners, to the lama I bow down.

Possessor of firm skill, virtue, and glory, great holder of the Vinaya,
With marvelous bodhichitta guiding wanderers, hero bodhisattva,
Completely, clearly realized in the four empowerments, great vidydhara,
Crown ornament of all teachers, to the venerable lama I bow down.”

May Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche quickly return to this suffering world to gladden and teach all beings. He is an incredibly great yogi.
