Simone and Lee, your mom and I taught together many years ago. My clearest memory of Donna is her laugh and how much she cared for everyone around her. Donna offered to do our wedding reception, and she pretty much missed the ceremony because she was taking care of everything for that celebration. She was always ready to help when it was needed, and she did so with warmth and grace. I will miss your mom. She has gone to be with God and no doubt is reunited with your dad Paul. May you know the comfort that only God can give. My prayers are with you.

We'll miss you Mrs. Turman. :-( I have many great childhood memories with you and family! Thanks for not telling my parents when I got in trouble (many times) at your house. Please let Paul and my grandfather stay late fishing upstairs. :-)
