I lived in Great Missenden,Bucks where Patricia lived at the time.I saw her several times in the street and thought then, many years ago what a proud,courageous lady,famous yes - however, quite sad how things turned out for her. Sandra (Somerset)

To the family: What a wonderful actress she was!! I truly loved watching her movies, one of my favorites being "The Day the Earth Stood Still." I loved her speaking voice too. Rest assured that she will never be forgotten by those who knew her, but especially not forgotten by the One in whom His memory Ms. Neal now sleeps (John 5:28,29). My deepest sympathy to you.

To the family of Patricia Neal:
Our son was a patient at Patricia Neal in Knoxville, from Dec. 1990 to Aug 1991 from a traumatic brain injury and much more. Without Patricia Neal's encouragement and love, those days would have been much longer for our family. She radiated life and the will to live to us at that time and we will always be grateful to her. Thank you for sharing her with us. The Parents of Mark Letterman and Mark.

Never knew her but always admired her
tremendous courage in the face of great adversity and also admired her great and
often underated talent. HUD is one of my all-time favorite films. She was a true survivor.

I have loved Patricia Neal all my life. She showed such strength and character after suffering from strokes. I am a nurse and I quote Patricia Neal to my patients in hopes that her ability to overcome will help them as well. She has been a moving force within me too. I was very ill as a child and teenager. I wanted to emulate her and overcome my illness so that I could become the nurse I am today. With her as my ideal and Jesus as my savior I have succeeded. The World has truly lost a bright, shining light with her loss. My prayers are with her family and friends that the love of God will sustain them and ease their pain.

To The Family of Ms.Neal, my deepest sympathy. I am just another Hollywood movie fan and her line of instructions to Gort will forever live in my memories. Great people strive and accomplish great things in the face of insurmountable obstacles. It was not an easy road for Patricia Neal as her family knows, she was ‘Truly A Great Lady’ and we are all blessed because Patricia Neal shared her greatness with the rest of us.

Again, my deepest sympathy.

To the Neal Family, Ms. Neal was a great Lady of the silverscreen! I did not know Her famous "gravelly" voice came by tragity of stroke(s). as a teenager ,(now 50), She would turn my focus to the t.v. when She spoke. I knew Her best from the famous Walton episode. My wife and i quote Her yearly at Thanksgiving of her line about "...where did you get those Turkey's?" (reverently and with fondness). The Neal family must be proud to call Her "Mom",Mother,Grandma, ect,.My Mom is in a resthome currently because of strokes at age 88. One day vivacious,next day totally different.I will keep Ms.Neal's legacy verbally alive with my own Mom's. Truely a loss for America in these troubled times we're in.Peace to Ms. Neal and her offspring. Love, Terry

Ms. Neal was a wonderful actress and from the review of the guest book she must have been an outstanding person. I loved her performance with John Wayne in "In Harms Way" there is no one that could have played Maggie Haynes the way that she did. My deepest sympathy and condolences to the family!

To the family of Patricia Neal - My heartfelt sympathy on the loss of your Mother. My encounters with Ms. Neal were always connected to Camp Jabberwocky, as I have a dear friend that attends. When we would gather at Ernie Boch's for a cookout Ms. Neal and her friend Elizabeth would grace our table with their company. I was in the presence of a great star - something I won't soon forget. My prayers go out to all of you.

The first time I heard your voice on Marthas Vineyard I knew it was you before I even turned around. My dad and husband were big John Wayne fans and that is where I came to know you as an actress. My sister is at Camp Jabberwocky and it was always wonderful to see you sitting in the audience.

Patricia Neal was the bravest soul. Amid all her medical setbacks, she remained an example of what the positive attitude can sway. She was a fighter, who, as she said, refused to lie down and give in.

She will be sadly missed by all, especially those closest.

May God Bless her family, and God Bless Patricia Neal.

She was a captivating actress. One of the type I wish all actresses would study and choose to emulate. She had the great looks, commanding voice and gentle nature that so many today don't seem to be able to grasp. She was also a real lady. Please accept my sympathies on her death. I can only add my prayers to all the others here. She is truly a great credit to all of us.

My only encounter was in 1951 during her role in the Submarine picture "Operation Pacific" as it premiered on board the USS Conger (SS477). I was able to get the Marques Poster that came with the film. I squirreled it away for many years until while teaching high school discovered that another faulty member, William Pete Neal, was her brother. In subsequent years having lost track with Pete I sent a letter to Patricia asking her for information about Pete’s whereabouts. She forwarded my letter on to Pete and I subsequently heard from him. That Marques Poster still hangs on my office wall with other naval memorabilia.

My sympathy goes out to her family.
