Donnie, Jena, and families,
I am so sorry to learn of your loss. Even though I haven't seen your mom in a long while, I thought of her often. She was a delightful lady to be around. Remember the good times, cherish the deep love she held for her family, and remember in our Lord's time, you all will be reunited again.
God bless you all.

My deepest sympathy to the family at this very difficult time. May you find comfort in God’s word the Bible at Revelation 2:3,4.

I heart goes out to your family! I loved Ms Turbeville I delivered medicine to her and enjoyed visiting with her she became my friend and she will truly be missed! She always worried about everyone else except her self. The last thing she said to me, was she was going to the nursing home and was sorry; she wouldn't be able to make any more goodies for us girls at the pharmacy! Peace be with you all!
