My dear, sweet Neal - My God - this hurts. I love you forever and a day. We shared a special bond that enriched my life in ways I can's express. I am at a loss about what to say here except that I know your weary soul is at peace now and you are in eternal paradise and that calms me. May your soul fly free now. I will pray for you, your family and your friends for many days and years to come. Someday we will meet again. I know this in my heart.
I love you, Neal. I love you.

I love you, Nealio. I wrote you a long letter a few nights ago, and I shared it to your FB page. I pasted it here, too, but I'm not sure what happened to it. I guess it was a tad too long. Anyway, just stopping by to say hello and tell you I love you and I miss you. We all miss you so much. I hope you can see everyone coming together and sharing so much love through our memories of you. YOU did that. You brought this family of believers together. It is all because of you. I love you endlessly, sweet soul surfer, with all the gratitude my heart can hold. ❤

I wasn't blessed to have met Neal but it's so touching to read of the lives around the world who have been touched by this kind soul. He must have gave his time and his heart to all he met. May all friends and family find peace and comfort at the difficult days ahead. God's blessings to all who knew and loved him.

Spoke with Neal a couple of times about music after some Cardinals shows and he couldnt been nicer. He had a warmth about him that shined. Im heartbroken. Im so thankful to have seen him for the last time at a Circles Around the Sun show not long ago. ❤
August 30, 2019
Thank you for your music. It will live on in my heart forever. Praying you have found peace.
August 30, 2019
It's so extremely sad.... I wrote to him after a concert in a very small club in Germany around 1996 and what happened? He really answered, that was so amazing and friendly, I was so happy about that. Later he even sent me some CDs with music from bands he liked very much. Later I was lucky to met and talk to him for a few moments before a Cardinal's show in Munich, that was so unbelievable nice, I was just a fan and I will always be. What happened to you Neal, hope you find peace, will never forget you. Love!
August 30, 2019
Neal seemed to never stop working, while doing what he loved. He was prolific and just so talented and diverse in his art. I saw him play many times, but it was not enough. Im regretting each show I missed. I hope he can finally rest. I hope that his grieving family and close friends can find solace in the fact that he brightened our musical world so much!
August 30, 2019
You were such an infinitely talented musician and a genuinely kind, humble man. You will be missed and remembered with love reverence forever. Thanks Neal, for all that you gave to us. Peace and harmony to you on this next phase of the journey...

How many times, with your songs, you have been a wonderful traveling companion! And not only in my car, but your music has kept me company along the path of my life! Your photos were a great inspiration and I was hoping that you would be back in Italy and between one concert and another we would talk about photo films and darkrooms. Oh Neal, we'll miss you so much! Condolences to your family from Italy.

Dear Neal, is very hard for a journalist became friend with an artist, but you were more than a friend because you always were acting as any of us, a fan of music between music fans. Devasted, but grateful to have met you, became friends and grateful for the beautiful music and songs you gave us thorough the years tho now I dont have the nerve to listen to it. I miss you in an awful way: I love you and always will, beautiful human being you were. Paolo

I just saw Neal with CATS this weekend at Lockn'. I was looking forward to experiencing that magic many more times. We'll catch you next life.
August 29, 2019
I had the privilege of seeing Neal perform several times over the years. I met him once, briefly, and he was soft-spoken and very kind. As a fellow musician, I was inspired by his talent; as a fellow human, I was inspired by his humility. My condolences go out to his family and those who knew him personally. Thank you for the music, Neal.
August 29, 2019
With sincere condolences. May the God of comfort give you peace in this difficult time.

My most sincere condolences to his family and loved ones.
May you find peace on the other side,Neal. Thank you for all the joy that you gave the world.
August 28, 2019
The first time, I met you I was taken by your sweetness. When you sang I thought I saw God. Tears came to my eyes you proved you could sing! When we spoke after the WNTI show, I found the conversation humbling. When I was writing my novel you encouraged me. After you moved we stopped talking. I will miss you my friend.
August 28, 2019
My deepest sympathy to Neils family and friends. I had the privilege of meeting Neil for a brief moment recently, and he truly was the kind soul that so many call him. I can not thank Neil enough for the happiness and warmth his music has brought to me over the years. You will be greatly missed by many and your fingerprint on the arts, music, and people you touched will only continue to grow.

August 28, 2019
It was an honor to know you my dear friend, such a nice person with a great heart. Hope you find peace now. Will treasure the times weve spend together.
August 28, 2019
I am completely gutted by the news of Neals passing. I spent many of years going to his shows here in NJ. From the first time I met him, he treated me as a friend and not a complete stranger. We developed a friendship and stayed in touch through letters and postcards back in the day. We were in touch some after he moved to LA, but nowhere nearly enough and i do regret that. Neal and his music will also remain near and dear to my heart. Rest easy old friend. You are greatly missed.
August 28, 2019
So very sorry to hear about Neal's passing. I saw him play a few times when he was a member of The Cardinals, with Ryan Adams and I was so impressed with his playing. And every time he was involved with a project, I knew that the playing would be incredible. It's hard to explain, but it made me feel really good to know that Neal Casal was playing rock n roll music. To hear that he passed away makes me really sad. My deepest condolences to his family and friends. I am so very sorry for your loss.
August 28, 2019
Our thoughts and prayers are with you God Bless.
August 28, 2019
Neal was a musical tour de force and a humble and kind gentle soul. My deepest condolences to his family, enormous group of friends and fans (like me). His music means the world to me. I loved him and will miss him everyday for the rest of my life.
August 28, 2019
Neal's inspiration will far out live any one person's life. A gentle soul that deserves peace and I pray he has found it. My heart grieves with the rest of us that have been touched by his playing and songs. My most sincere condolences go out to his family and friends.
August 28, 2019
May his memories live on. May comfort from the God of comfort help you through this difficult time.
August 28, 2019
Rest in Peace Mr. Casal.
August 28, 2019
Sorry to hear of the loss
August 27, 2019
He sat on the Missouri River Bluff with my daughter Emilie, my partner Rick, and myself. He said he felt like he was home. I so enjoyed him and he touched our lives with joy
August 27, 2019
I remember Neal when he played small bars in New Jersey he came over to my house for dinner one night and I just knew this guy was destined for bigger things. So sorry to hear of his death. Hardly seems possible.
August 27, 2019
I remember when Neals album Fade Away Diamond a Time came out and I would see him perform at local venues in Northwest NJ. He was such a talented musician/singer/songwriter, and such an amazing, kind person. Rest In Peace Neal. The world is a little less brighter now that you are no longer in it.
August 27, 2019
I am truly sorry about the passing of your loved one. May God grant your family peace and strength during this difficult time. Deepest sympathies.
August 27, 2019
Another great Musician gone to soon .Play on in the
Heavens .
