My hero the only man I could talk to.. I miss you so much daddy! No a day goes by that I don’t think about you. I love you so much! I wish you were still here #gonebutnotforgotten #2months

Posted by Kat Kierstead on March 29, 2019
Its so hard to believe your actually gone.. I'm writing on here to say its been a month and a half since you were called home! I miss you more than anyone will ever know!!!! I constantly cry over you.. I just cant help it I miss you.. Everyday that passes I miss you more and more.. I feel like my life is so incomplete. My best friend, my HERO, MY NUMBER ONE MAN, My favorite person was taken from me. I know I'll see you again but knowing the fact that you won't be here to walk me down the aisle when I get married. You wont be here physically to see me have kids. I have to continue to grow up and now without my daddy. I really can't take this. Me and you had a special connection. I could feel when you flatlined. I told sherrill right then dads gone THE SAME DAY NOT EVEN FIVE MINUTES AFTER IT HAPPEND. But the hospital brought you back to see if you would improve. I'll never forget the night i got the call that you passed February 12th 2019. Thats exactly 7 days before my birthday. How will I live with this every year?? I never wanted to have to say goodbye to you daddy!! I'm not gonna get to physically call you and hear your voice on father's day or your birthday! I won't ever get to call you up on april fools and get ya no more.. I was so close to you! You were always my favorite person growing up... Matter fact even though your in heaven you will always and forever be my #1 favorite person. I love you so much dafdy! ❤❤❤ I miss you so much!! I miss our conversations we had on the daily. I miss you calling me bitching about Tia... Daddy was a good man.. Me and him have so many great memories. Just the thought of you being gone makes me wanna be with you daddy.. But i know your always with me in my ❤!! You are now my #1 guardian angel!!  Watch over me daddy and keep me safe!! I love you and miss uou so damn much.. Until i see you again... Im gonna be the happiest daddys girl ever I know that for a fact!

I can't wait to see you again daddy! 
You've been on my mind 24/7 but its too hard for me to write about it.
It just kills me when i think about you and cant even talk to you. It really kills me knowing I will never get to talk to you again. My world without you isn't complete. It will never be the same without here. I love you so so so much and miss you more than anyone will know. ❤ my life kinda feels not at all complete cause you arent here with us.. Well as i said for 23 years I WILL ALWAYS BE YOUR BABYGIRL EVEN IF YOU ARENT HERE. IM ALWAYS GONNA BE A DADDYS GIRL. THAT WILL NEVER CHANGE!! NO MATTER WHAT AGE.. ❤ I LOVE YOU ALWAYS.
REST IN PARADISE DADDY!!!

Turk was the best father in law in the world not only was he my father in law he was my best friend n will always be remembered n never forgotten. Turk you have your wings now I'll see you again my friend when you open the gates for me we love n miss you Turk
Posted by Jadeah Hutchens on February 16, 2019
Turk was one of a kind, I remember meeting him for the very first time back when I dated his step son. he could light up the room with just one smile. HE LOVED MUSIC & made everyone laugh when he'd dance around singing with his big headphones over his ears. We spent countless nights up on the porch at 2-3am just talking. All of his kids and I. There wasn't a bad bone in his body. We love you Turk and miss you dearly. Gone but DEFINITELY NEVER TO BE FORGOTTEN. Rest easy, your soul was to true and beautiful for this world. We love you

I don’t really know how to start, I guess I can start off by saying thank you for coming into my life and being there for me. Thank you for stepping up and treating me like your own daughter.. even though things ended bad, you will be missed dearly.. to be honest it doesn’t even seem true but Rip.. -Rosie
Posted by Tina Allen on February 13, 2019
Turk, I can't believe you are gone. It feels like a dream that I can't wake up from. I just wanna hear your voice calling for advice or maybe just to shoot the shit. Man this truly sucks for everyone you left behind. You are so missed by many. Always my brother n law. Ugh I miss you Turk, until we meet again. Love ya, Later! ❤
Posted by Sherrill Kierstead on February 13, 2019

Daddy you were one of the best fathers, i honestly can't believe you left us so soon at the age of 45. Your grandson that shared a birthday with you didn't even get the chance to meet you which breaks my heart but we will all meet again daddy. Stuff keeps replaying in my head about the memories we had. You called me all the time to check on me and kids, i miss hearing your voice ! But no more suffering, i love you very much daddy Rest In Peace Daddy until we meet again
