  1. Mom was alway talking about Floyd. I have alway enjoyed talking and visting with your dad. This year it has been twenty years since losing Mom. I remember the week Mom pass, that your dad came up on Saturday and Mom was in coma. To my gurprise, on sunday, Floyd was on my doorstep to vist his sister. To our surprise, Mom woke up and sat in her chair and visted for several hours with her brother. I didn’t know who was smoking more, Mom or Floyd. That evening mom fell asleep and died two days later. I will reember his kindness and love he gave to his sister. When I talked to Floyd, he alway spoke good of his family. I will truly miss my uncle and his stories. Alway in my prayers LOve Mary

  2. For the Family of Floyd Turner….I’m sorry for your loss and I’m keeping you in my prayers. I work with Lauren in Lincoln. Sympathy & Prayers to all. Yours: Barb Seggelke

  3. To Floyd jr, and the rest of his family, my deepest condolences, your in my prayers. Floyd if you read this send me an e-mail. I live in Florida now. God bless Bob.

  4. Myself, Stan and our children would like to send you our sympathies. I (April) can remember stopping at your house every time we visited grandma and pa Turner. I can vividly remember your dad and mom always greeting us with excitement and lots of love. Us little girls couldn’t wait to play with all you kids. I can remember thinking Little Floyd was such a cute cousin. And Linda you were absolutely beautiful. Lisa and Tracy and Jamie you were all just one of us and would entertain us as long as we were there. Mom and dad would often say what a beautiful family you all had in each other. I too know, you have a wonderful family and know you will all take care of your mom during this time. We too, will be praying for all of you, loss is never easy no matter what the circumstances. For me it is like loosing a little of mom again. Mom would refer to Uncle Floyd as her little brother and tell lots of stories of them growing up. It saddens me to think he is one of the last sibling of the original 5 Turners to pass on. But in another spirit we can rejoice in the fact they are all together again. Watch out up there, I think it could be one heck of a reunion! May God Bless and Comfort all of you with good memories and a love that is always felt between each of you. Love Stan, April, Danny, Nathan, John and Michael Adams

  5. Linda, Mrs Turner, & all the family, My deepest sympathy on the loss of your father & husband. May your memories bring you comfort during this sad time. Sincerely, Lorna Barnett

  6. With sincerest sympathy we send this to your family.We can always trust God for needed strength and comfort (Ps.34:18)in times of loss and sadness. Mr. Turner touched the lives of others and will be sadly missed.
