Condolences to the Turner family.

Dan was a great man and a great boss! He will be missed by many.


Heaven just received a wonderful addition!

As classmates of Danny, we offer sincere condolences to the entire family. So sorry for your loss, but Heaven truly received a very special man. He was always smiling, and never heard him speak a bad word against anyone.

Prayers for you all.
