Dearest Turner family,
We were so happy to hear that Grandma GG was able to see Amy, Ann and their families as well as being with her dearest family in Illinois. What a genuine blessing to celebrate her 100th B-Day with her loved ones. May God keep her in His eternal peace. Know that we send you all our sincerest love and celebrate her AMAZING life with you. I am sure she will be truly missed, but then just knowing that she is in a much lovelier place and that you will be with her one day is the hope that our faith gives us. God bless you all.

Bob, Pat, and Dianne,
I am keeping you in prayer for the passing of you beloved mother. I also am thinking of you and wishing you peace and comfort. Each of you were a wonderful blessing to your mother as you remained at her side as you each assisted her and gave your love. May God bless you.
My deepest sympathy,
