A VOICE HAS BEEN SILENCED
BY: CHARLES G. TURNER, SR.

TODAY OUR HEARTS ARE HEAVY WITH PAIN
BECAUSE OF THE SORROW HURT AND DISDAIN
A VOICE HAS BEEN SILENCED FROM THIS LAND
AND NOW WE HAVE TO PUT THIS GRIEF IN GOD'S HAND

FOR THIS LOSS WE WONDER WHY
AS WE PRAY MOURN AND CRY
IT IS HARD FOR THE MOTHER WHO GAVE BIRTH
TO NO LONGER SEE HER...

May the God of all comfort strengthen the family during this time of deep sorrow. Those who pass on, God keeps in his memory because they are precious in his eyes. My sincerest condolences.

My most sincere condolences to the family and friends of Hansjorg, David, and Jess.
