We never had the pleasure of meeting Mr.Turner but we felt we got to know him through the many stories told to us by Nancy and Rico. This was clearly a man whose distinguished life, service, and quality of character could only have lead him to a passing with a peace above all earthly dignities and a still and quiet conscience. Our best to all of you.
