Mr. Turner was a retired coal miner who enjoyed spending time with his family, listening to Bluegrass music, and loved the lord with all his heart.

His mother passed away not long after he was born so we take comfort in the thought of the big smile on his face and the love he felt when he finally got to Heaven to meet her for the first time and to be reunited with his son that passed away when he was only 10 days old.
