Norma Jean, I'm so sorry to learn of your mom's death. I have such wonderful memories of her and all of you during the time we lived in Warrenville. Please know that I am keeping you close in my prayers.

To all four of the daughters...while I hope each of you will read this, my hope is that at least one of you will. I have watched from close by over the last few years at how each of you have put your own lives on hold and gave up so much time, energy, and love to make sure your mother was taken care of. Each of you can hold your head high. She was a wonderful lady and my thoughts and prayers are with all four of you. I will keep a close watch on the house as you asked me to do.

Mrs.Laura and family, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Mrs. Turner. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I am sorry to hear of your loss. May you find comfort in the resurrection promise at John 5:28,29 that reads; "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming when all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." The Bible gives us hope that one day our dead loved ones will be brought back to life.
