We would like to express our deepest condolences and also let the Crookston Family know that we recently made a small donation to the SGM Wardell Turner Memorial Fund in honor of Wardell B. Turner US Army Command Sergeant Major. We recognize that this is a humble tribute, but we wanted you to know that it is heartfelt and made possible by thousands of like-minded individuals in the youth hockey community and beyond. We will not forget. May God Bless you and keep you strong.

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.

My deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Sgt. Maj. Wardell B. Turner. I shall always be grateful to him for his service and sacrifice for our country.
