  1. I will miss you more than anyone will ever know. You brought a smile to my face every time I saw you. I will miss you Mr. Turner.

  2. To the Turner Family,
    Don was a very kind man and a good neighbor. He was always pleasant to my sisters,brothers, and me as we grew up. When we visited our parents, it was always a joy to go next door and visit Mr. & Mrs. T, as we affectionately came to know Don and Grace. He was a wonderful friend to our parents for 50 yrs. and will be missed by my Mom, as they looked out for each other in their latter years. My heart and prayers go out to Don’s family and especially to Donnie and Patty as it is difficult to lose both parents in such a short duration. God Bless all of you.

    With love and sincerest condolences,

    Jan & Bill Mashburn
