Not sure what to say?

Dear Cornelia,
We will always remember Dr. Browne enjoying the beauty and fine fishing on Manitoulin Island. Our thoughts are with you and your family.
All the very best,
Donna and Dave Musson

Cornelia, you have been in my thoughts and prayers. We will always remember Dr. Browne coming by our house in his little orange car. Even though I graduated from high school with him, I did not know him well but in years later I got to know him as the Dr. next door while I worked for Dr. Boli.
God bless you with His comfort.

wow, this makes me sad, but happy for heaven to have such a great man up there... Dr.Brown was my families Dr in Greenville, Ohio for many years. He made going to the Dr Easy.. Very good man!! Our family sends our deepest sympathy to his family. May god help you all during your time of loss... Robin Beal & Family (Bob & Sue Miller)

I distinctly remember a specific occasion: It was dusk, and he wanted to take me out on the boat to catch a fish as they were coming in to feed in the evening. We went out, just the two of us, after dinner and started to troll along the reed lined shore. We made it a fare way from the cottage (the Beacon at that time) when all of a sudden a storm rolled in very quickly. It started to rain and thunder, and the waves were really rocking us around. Grandpa was motoring back toward to cottage and...

I am so sorry to see Dr. Browne has passed. Dr. Browne was my doctor here in Greenville, and I grew up down the road from him. I have lots of good childhood memories, playing in the woods with his sons. My heart is with all of you right now. May God give them strength to get them through this sad time. Thinking of you, Marilyn Parks (Boner).

CORNELIA, YOU ARE IN OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS. PEACE BE WITH YOU AND YOUR FAMILY AT THIS DIFFICULT TIME, SINCERELY, OPAL AND JIM WESPISER

I enjoyed working with you when I was in Student Affairs. You did a lot for the University, and, especially, for students at Miami University. And, as an animal lover myself, thank you for the home you gave to those animals needing one. May you rest in peace. My condolences to your family and friends!

A REMEMBRANCE OF BILL BROWNE

I cant remember when I didn't know Bill Browne.
His family and my family, along with the Brumbaughs,
the Hemers and the Holes were friends before we were born,
and we grew up together.
When I was 5, he told me there was no Easter Bunny which
ended a nice run of Easter Baskets for me. I finally forgave
him for this several years ago but the pain lingers on.
Bill came from a prominent Greenville family....
