Not sure what to say?

Thank you for taking care of my mom Mrs. Johnnie C. Dillard you will be dearly missed. McKinley family. We found out today so sorry to hear....

I really appreciated your commitment to the best care for your patients. You will be missed.

Sorry to hear of this loss. She was my neuro at the clinic. She really cared about her patients and really listened.

Gerard, Pam and the entire Brown family,
Words can not express how heavy my heart is for you all. I wish that I could have known such an amazing woman. If she is anything like her brother, Gerard, you are all blessed to have had her for a sibling and a friend. May her memory sustain during this sad time and keep her close to your hearts. May she rest in peace and watch over all of you from her amazing new front row seat.

I am so sorry for your loss. JANET was my dr for ms for a few years. She was a great person and done her job well and cared deeply for her patients. Will be missed.

She was my neuro at MMC. Even with all I dealt with after my accident, she somehow managed to get a laugh out of me before each appointment was over. Janet was such a special lady, with a personality bigger than life. May she rest easy, as she is now healed. She will never be forgotten, nor will the time she compared me to the crooked little lady in the crooked little house. Anytime someone mentions it now, I think of her and I'm sure that will never change.

So sorry to hear about Ms. Janets passing. I know she was so loved by all of you. Thinking of you all in this time.

We are so sorry to hear of Janet's passing. May she rest in peace. May Jesus' love comfort you.
