My friend Neil passed away, and although many of you out there didnít know him, I think itís right and good to say his name and honor his spirit. Neil was my former neighbor. Neil was a great stage and television actor. Neil was a connoisseur and collector of art. Neil was a lover of books and he was smitten with Inuit culture. Neil loved hummingbirds. They came in swarms to his feeder. Iíve never seen anything like it. I dubbed him the hummer whisperer. Neil was outspoken and devilish and charming and sometimes grumpy (but arenít we all). Neil called me Ďdarling MJí (swoon). Neil told a mutual friend before he died that he I was Ďone of the most beautiful women he had seen in his long, rich lifeí (serious blush). For a few months, several years ago, I packed up all of Neilís lifeís possessions for his move back to the east coast to be near his sons and grandchildren. During that time he regaled me with old theater stories and we had hearty laughs and gossip sessions. We stayed in touch after he left the state, sending letters by snail mail. Coincidentally, I know his son Mathew from my time working at The Red Lion. Mathew texted me tonight about Neilís passing. My heart sunk.
...
Rest In Peace dearest Neil Vipond.


Neil as Chuck Peters in TNA episode The Gladiators (1977).
