Not sure what to say?

God bless you, Doc. You have provided me with many hours of entertainment. I actually met you checking into a hotel in Reno the night before you played there. You didnt have a Sharpie and I had nothing to write on but you signed our concert tickets and was very kind to do so. You are already missed.

Dear Family of Dr John,
I have met and seen Dr John several times throughout my life. Every one was an experience to remember. I am so so sorry! He enriched the world.

Thanks for the memories & music you left us. Another angel rocking in heaven. R.I.P. Doctor

Dr. John, Dr. John...you have left us and gone on. Loved your music and your persona!!! Dug your voice and your musicianship. There will never, ever be another like you. There are some people in this world that you just don't forget...and Dr. John was definitely one of them. Now that Dr. John has crossed the bar (something all of us must do at life's end) we can loose him and let him go. Dr. John is now at an ETERNAL destination where we have yet to arrive. There is a brighter side somewhere...

A pioneer of music..down home NEW ORLEANS soul loving music has left us only in the physical. His presence and coolness is still here...WHAT A LEGEND...he didnt play music for monetary reasons...he did it because his SOUL could talk through his music...HE WAS NATURALLY GIFTED...THANK U for sharing ones extraordinary talent!!....MUCH LOVE❤

Thank you for the music RIP. You will live forever on the radio.

Saddened for the loss of my friend Mac. Drove Mac for 19 years at NOJHF. Many memorable times. Will truly miss. RIP

Bless you Doctor John and may the Angels guide your path to heaven. Peace!
