Am so sorry to hear about the passing of your Dad. I just found some pictures of your parents the other day in my parents photos.(Howard and Elsie Williams) Thought about all the good times we had together.

I was shocked and so sorry to read about your father’s passing in the paper yesterday. I had no thought last week when you came by the house that evening that he would pass away. He went pretty quickly and I hope he didn’t suffer too much. We know that he is going to a better place, but I know you will still miss him deeply. Our prayers are with your and Brenda and your family. I am very sorry we couldn’t get to the calling hours or the funeral to be with you either.

Love and payers to you both and the whole family. One day at a time.

I have many memories of Mr. Turner… yes, I’m 49 and he is still Mr. Turner to me… the memory that stands out most to me relates to when I broke my leg at the beginning of 5th grade. I was bedridden in a cast in the hospital and Mr. Turner offered to tutor me throughout my recover…which would be serveral months. My memory is of him walking into my room and seeing me for the first time after the accident, cast on, in traction with a pin through my leg and he had a tear in his eye. I’ll never forget the day that he shed a tear for me. I guess it’s my turn to shed a tear for him.

There are many good things that come to mind when thinking of the friendship between my family and Mr. Turner. Having kept in touch through the years and being one of his students I grew up and shared my adventures with him.His loss is like a stone in the heart and he will sorely be missed. In Sympathy, Jeff Wraley
