Dear Turner Family , I didn't know your love one although he played a role in helping my family to be safe as a Delaware citizen. Some count riches in a monetary way but your love one was rich in love ,values and family & friends. His core work ethics's were passed on to many and his teaching and training of others will last threw out their life times. Please accept my deeply felt condolences and may all of you continue to reflect what he gave you.

You will never be forgotten. Delaware has lost a great person.
