Not sure what to say?

Sorry for her passing God has gained back one of his many children. I was her patient for a few years and she has always been able to help me and lots of prayers to her family.

So sorry to hear about this today Nov 26th 2019. Ms. Janet Brown was such a blessing to my son she was his neurologist and friend. She was trully a sweet person with a heart of love and compassion for all those she came in contact with. I was saddened as I just found out but as I got to thinking she 's gonna have Thanksgiving in the heavenly realms and what a feast that will be. Many prayers and condolences for your family during this time of loss.

I wanted to drop you all a note and tell you that I was so sorry to learn of Janet's passing. (I just learned today.) Janet has been my neurologist since I moved to Murfreesboro in 2012. She always listened to me and encouraged me. She also helped talk me into trying a new medication that was a real life changer for me. She made a big difference in a lot of folks' lives. I am sure you already know that but I wanted to tell you another time.

Again, I am so sorry for your loss.

Janet was a WONDERFUL Nurse and a patient advocate. I was her patient for several years ,and she always addressed my concerns. She helped me deal with my migraines. I will surely miss her contagious smile and how much she cared for her patients. I remember how much time she spent with me when my father passed and I was arguing with my siblings over getting some of my dads ashes. She took the time to talk to me and help me work through my grief. No mater how busy she was she took her time...

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.
