"It is with deepest gratitude that we say good-bye to the last of a wonderful generation of first cousins who grew up together and taught the next generation the meaning and importance of a loving family. Mildred, thanks for the history book. Alvin and Patricia, you honor your mother. Nancy and Bubba Turner, Martha Holden Turner's children"
What a lovely person. My deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolenses. From AA's continued attention toward his mother, there is no doubt she was greatly loved and will be greatly missed."
