On the wings of an angel my spirit ascends
Straight up to Heaven where God gently mends
A body, once broken, now fully restored
To new life eternal with Jesus our Lord
God doesn't take, instead God receives
And someday, dear loved ones, you'll be here with me

~ until then, Jo, may God give you strength for today and for the days ahead.  Much love, my friend.  Always!

I miss you Turner. I'm so sorry Becca for your loss. I'm praying for your family. He was a light to me, when I was depressed in a deep place latley. Knowing him for a kid to an adult he really was the funnest guy.... I don't think it's fair at all, someone so helpful to so many was taken so soon. :(

I am so sorry you had to leave early Turner.
My heart aches for those grieving -

There is a season (a time appointed) for everything and a time for every delight and event or purpose under heaven— A time to be born and a time to die; A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.

My heart and prayers are with all of my Texas family at this time. Even tho we lived miles apart and I haven't seen Turner in years, He was still my cousin, who I will miss never having a chance to visit again. I do remember him and all my other little cousins, with fondness. He had a lot of energy and made me laugh. Him and little Rebecca! Wish I was able to make it to his service.i know I will shed some more tears here for him and my family. Love to u all.

Turner was just a little boy when he and Rebecca would come over and play with Alison.  All the kids in our neighborhood played together.  Prayers for your family as the loss of a child, a brother, a husband, or a friend is always difficult.  May you rest in peace!
