Loved this actress in theater and tv, She even replied to me when I sent her a note about her performance in "Real Estate" but of course "Family" is my treasure. It would be a tribute to Ms. Thompson to release all of the episodes. Rest in Peace and she taught me a lot. Thank you
June 20, 2014
To complete Ms. Thompson's legacy, the DVD Family - Season 3, needs to be released. She was again nominated for an Emmy award and is so worth while for us to watch her acting.
February 07, 2014
To this day I think back on Sada Thompson as she portrayed the mother in "Family." Somehow she was able to reach out from the screen and make me long to be a part of her family, fictitious as it was. One could feel her warmth and strength. Her eyes were piercing, her voice soothing, her physical presence comforting, even through a TV screen. I wonder, how did she accomplish that? What a tremendous talent!
January 26, 2014
Ms. Thompson was my favorite character in Family. I always liked strong and level-headed "Kate." Not long ago, I purchased the DVD set of the first season or two. The series still rings true today. Not dated at all. True quality television--then and now.

Sad to hear of her passing, she was a warm genuine caring soul
July 22, 2013
So Sorry to here about Sada's passing. She was my dear friend in high school. She always wanted to be an actress and she accomplished her dreams. My deepest sympathies to her family and close friends. Edith C.

Saddened to learn of Sada Thompson's passing. Was blessed to know her at the Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford, CT.
April 14, 2012
I just took out my DVD player today and found my "Family" collection still tucked inside. After watching several episodes, I decided to "Google" the cast to see what had become of them. I remembered reading that James Broderick had passed away some time ago, but was shocked to read about Sada Thompson.

As a long time fan of hers, I'd like to echo what so many others have written.

Rest in Peace.

I would watch anything, knowing she was in it. She was the soul of motherhood, warm, wise and wonderful, in Family and that warmth can't be portrayed without possessing the feelings. I have continued to miss Family throughout the years and have compared other shows to it but they have all fallen short. I have often wished it could have continued after the death of Jas. Broderick, as life does, as I know it would have been full with her at the helm. She was a great actress. And it must have been pure pleasure to have known her.
July 21, 2011
Sada was a wonderful person and actress and will be greatly missed. I enjoyed her and James Broderick in Philadelphia (On Golden Pond) and asked to go back stage. They were both so gracious. Sada sent me Christmas cards for many years. I met Sada several times backstage at various plays. I met Sada Thompson and Rue McClanaghan in 1983 (Our Town) in San Diego, now both have left this world. God Bless you both. Marianne Keyser
July 17, 2011
So very sad to hear the news that Ms. Sada Thompson had passed away. She was truly one of the great actress' of her era. I asked for episodes of "Family" for my Christmas a couple of years ago. I watched those episodes during the 70's when they were on & wished that I had lived in the Lawrence house. She will be missed by many, but heaven has truly been blessed by Sada's loving smile. Thank you for sharing your talent with us & making us feel alittle warmer inside & letting us feel that we were apart of your T.V. family. Say hello to James (Doug Lawrence).
July 08, 2011
I have always loved you dearest Sada. Your work as an actress was beautiful. Andres mother was my favorite. And also your scenes with Kristy on Family God bless you lovely one.
June 29, 2011
I write this simple note to the Family of Miss Sada; She has been so vital in my life as an actress because she looks just like my mother. Sada's role in "Family" is exatly how my mother is in my own family. May God continue to extend her legacy to all of us who aspire to live a meaningful life just as she had lived. - Waylon J.
June 20, 2011
I have felt terrible since the night I found out Ms. Thompson had left us. I wrote to her two years ago and she wrote back even complimenting my big Shaggy Sheepdog Hefner.....There are no and never will another great actress like her. I took a ride up to the house where they filmed the show Family...just to kind of feel close to her. I keep hearing the shows theme song and want to cry but my autograph photo of her in up on my baby grand just like in the show's credits gives comforts me....Rest In Peace and how I wish we had met....

Just found out tonight from the Tony's IM MEMORIAN. Sada Thompson was a great lady, and great actress. She was a firm supporter of my work on Hedgerow Theatre,and helped me get to the Shaw Confernce in Milwaukee. I qoute Sada all the time. When accepting her Tony she said Theatre is a Noble Profession. Sada Thompson made it so.
June 12, 2011
I just heard on the Tony Awards show that Sada had passed away - my condolences to her family. In my first job in professional theater at the Shakespeare Theater in Stratford, CT, 40 years ago, I was Sada's dresser when she played the mother in Mourning Becomes Electra. She was always the ultimate professional, kind and patient. She was a wonderful actress and a gracious person. Good-bye, Sada.
May 29, 2011
My love of theatre came from watching Sada perform in the Thornton Wilder play Our Town with Hal Holbrook. I was hooked from there. Every kid on the block wanted Kate Lawrence as a mother to sit and talk to. Sada and I traded post cards and letters for the last year and a half and I will always treasure that.. The spotlight dims but it will never go out when we remember you and your amazing career..rest in peace dear Sada..Katherine Springfield MO
May 28, 2011

I am writing you to express my deepest sympathy over the loss of your dear loved one. I can't inagine the intense emotional pain you must feel at this time. Grief is overwhelming. At times you may even feel as though you are alone on an emotional roller coaster. Always remember our Creator knows our limits.That is why at Psalms 13:18 he tells us he is there for us, it states:"God is near to those broken in heart and those crushed in spirit he saves. I pray that you will find comfort from these thoughts and scripture to help you cope with the death of our dear loved one. Tori Drake

such a loss i so enjoyed you as kate lawrence in family. rest in peace
May 09, 2011
As I see from many others, her performance in the television series "Family" will be what so many of us remember her for. She played a caring and very strong, yet a traditional role as a mother. I often wonder if this was what she was in her real life. The show dealt with so many situations long before they became the norm to be open about them. I never forgot her perofrrmance and what it represented.
May 09, 2011
lOVED THE SH0W FAMILY and Loved her in the part. She was so natural so motherly, like my mom. God bless. So Sorry for your (our) Loss. Some times we get great people in our lives... Lucky us forever...................
May 09, 2011

Aww..I loved this special woman even though I never met her. Her role as Sada in Family reminded me of my mother who passed away 35 yrs ago.
May 09, 2011
I loved Sada on "Family." She was the mother everyone wanted to have. My sympathy to her family; I'm glad that she was a part of all our families.
May 09, 2011
My deepest sympathy and condolences to family, friends and fans. I very much admired her on "Family." She was that strong yet soft-hearted motherly figure,never really losing her cool in the series. I imagine her the same way in real life.

May 09, 2011
Like many others, I grew up watching Sada on "Family," and although I never met her in person, she really was family - Sada's mother and my grandfather were first cousins. I will miss hearing your stories in the letters you wrote to my mom.

To Sada's husband, daughter and family members, I am so sorry for your loss. May your memories comfort you.
May 09, 2011
I so much enjoyed watching Sada in "Family". She was a strong woman I'm guessing off stage and on. Sorry to hear of her passing, I now she was admired and respected
May 09, 2011
R.I.P. Sada you will be sadly missed and one of a kind.
May 09, 2011
Ms. Thompson was one of the huge influences on me and my career. Her work at the American Conservatory Theatre in the late 60's & early 70's was among the experiences that started me on my trajectory as a professional actor. I am sad to know she is gone...
May 09, 2011
Having been lucky enough to have seen Miss Thompson on the stage at ACT, I can truthfully say that her performances were full of compassion, vigor, and honesty.
May 09, 2011

Without speaking a word, Sada Thompson conveyed character. And when she spoke the words, they seemed more worth saying than usual, whatever the situation. She elevated the scene, the other players, and our breadth of understanding. Rest in peace.
May 09, 2011
Thank you, Sada, for all that you have given us.

A true artist who graced us with her talent, her presence, and her humanity. We loved her work because through it, she understood and captured all of what it means to be human - our foibles, frailties, successes, failures, sorrows, and joys. May she now rest in peace.
May 09, 2011
I loved her work and respected her as an actor. She always gave a memorable performance. A much admired person and a true loss in the acting community. We were so fortunate that she opted to share her great talent with us all. May she rest in peace.

Thinking of your co-stars but mostly your family. RIP

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

One of the great actresses of our time has left us for a greater stage. She will be missed.

Crossing the Bar

Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,

But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.

Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;

For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crost the bar.

I first knew of her in the television

She's a true class-act who will be missed.
May 09, 2011
...the durable matriarch...
She was so much more.
I have enjoyed her worked since I noticed her in "Family." I was a teen.
I had a wonderful Mother. I remember thinking if everyone could have a Mother like mine or her character, all would be well in the world.
God's peace to her family.
May 09, 2011

More than 30 years ago when I was first getting in touch with sharing my feelings, I sent a note to Ms. Thompson thanking her for her role on "Family". I shared with her that her character gave me a role model of being honest and open with my feelings and thoughts. I received a lovely thank you note back from her which I have framed on my wall all these years since. I'm sure she touched many lives in similar ways. - Richard J. Schlapia, Washington DC
