Not sure what to say?

Neil was a great human being, earning respect and love from the many lives he touched. There is no doubt that my life would be very different without the Professor in my life. His influence went far, far beyond rock & roll... The loss I feel is profound and will be with me for a long time... The impression was strong, and the sensation is strong.

I am very heartbroken. My thoughts and prayers go out to Carrie and Olivia, Geddy and Alex, and Neil's family at this time. My deepest sympathies. I am so very sorry for your loss. Neil will always live in our hearts, and we will always keep him in our thoughts. Thank you, Neil, for being a part of my life, and for all of the beautiful music and the memories... I love you, and I miss you so much. Love your fan.. Michelle. ❤❤❤

Rest in peace Neil. I have never met you, but you touched my life on many levels. Peace to your family in this time of loss.

Thank U for the beautiful music and wonderful lyrics but more than anything else thanks for the inspiration. Your a beautiful soul and 1 of a kind rest in peace brother

You were the best! Thank you for so many years of joy!

Learned a lot about you through your books......what a inspiration you were through your music and books.
Prayers go out to friends and family.

RIP Sir! Your style and words will be missed. I hope you and my brother are hanging out together now!

The Greatest, The Professor, The Best ever.

Through Neils words, I found permission to be my deep-thinking, introverted, misfit self. Thats the influence an artist can have on a person. And perhaps why it is a loss I so profoundly feel. My sincere condolences to his family, Geddy, Alex, and his friends.
