Tammy Turner Garner


Dear Barbara and Family,
I remember coming to visit with my Grandparents, Edgar and Julia Turner. Brenda and Carleen would always play with me. I thought that was great! I also remember asking Barbara "will you be my other Grandma"? .Carl was such a wonderful man. God Bless You All.

Thinking of you

Bob Arnold


Truly a great man; one that I am glad to have known my whole life. How he could playfully squeeze your wrist so tight that you could not open or close your hand, or how he could drive a nail through a board using only his "hitchhiker" thumb, or how he could still beat me in a foot race until I was 16 years old, ha! More importantly, how he read his Bible every day and sang songs of praise to the Lord. These are the memories I'll take with me because it's not the last breath that counts but how we use the ones leading up to it, and Carl used his in a way that inspires me to be better. To Aunt Brenda, Barbara and family, my heart hurts for you, but I pray that you can forgive me for saying that the pain I have for your loss is only overshadowed by the joy I have in Carl's new gain of being with our Lord in Heaven. Trust in the Lord and live for him, and in doing so this moment will not be a good bye but rather I'll see you later. Thank the Lord for letting us borrow such a good individual if only for a time, and through the Lord's Grace we will see you again!

May God bless you all!

Bob Arnold and family

I am so sorry for your loss. I knew Mr. Sheldon back in the 80s and he was a very sweet, funny and hardworking man. I remember him helping me with my golf game! Much love and prayers to the family.
