"During the past 30 years, we have so many sweet memories of our blended (Lynn & Turner) families spending time together having cookouts in their back yard and Christmas in their home.  The Lord especially blessed me several years ago to have been given the precious time to care for Mom before she passed in April 2013 and spend time with Roy before they were both called home.  We will all miss and love you both so very much.  Gail and my heartfelt sympathies go out to Pam (Jeep), Dianne (Barbara), Mike (Lena) and the rest of the Lynn Family.  May God be with you in the days and weeks ahead."

"So thankful for the the past couple of years I really got to know him and Helen better than any other time in my life. Also thankful for the loving care Carver gave him too. His CNA's & RN's and Hospice really did love him and cared for him well. When I had to leave him I always knew the Lord was with him, he was never really alone. I always told him that. Yes, I have many precious memories."

"My brother Roy..He was such a special person...Not perfect because none of us are perfect but we are forgiven by our Father in Heaven..Hard working man he was & when he retired & continued to have health problems along with his wife Helen, he started to give up on life as we all sometimes do...A few months ago when Helen went on to be with the Lord, the visits I had with Roy I could tell he wanted to be with her & the rest of his heavenly family..Roy suffered with pain & grief for several months...Then on December 5, GOD decided to take him home & heal him--no more pain,worry,sickness..I love my brother & I will miss him, but I know he is in good hands..RIP brother, I LOVE YOU..."
