I will miss Mrs. Turner she was a caring and Sweet Woman I recall when I was a toddler had the pleasure of meeting her she grew to love me would watch me from time to time. When I would go back to East Atlanta to go back for the school year after the Winter and Summer breaks she would say Oh you going back to the big city I would say yes Ma'am and smile. When I first move to Georgia back in 2004-2005 I had requested a meal she was glad to have cook it! it was around the summer time of 2005. I will miss seeing her when I would go home to Flint and going over to visit with her and Mr. Turner I will also miss watching tv with her and the family. I want to express my deepest sympathy to my sisters Lily and Lailah as well as Dominique, Dimitri , VicTorrie, Diamond continue to walk in faith and Ordained! continue to be strong and Optimistic! May Yahweh Keep and bless you all Much Love & Respectfully

Cliff and Barbara are the most honest, respectful people we know. We lived next door to them for 25 years. The best neighbors we could ask for. We have many special memories of Barbara and will cherish them always. Whether it was just a friendly wave hello for the day or a chat over the fence in the back yard they were always interesting and friendly! The Turner family have our highest Love and Respect.
