Hello Turrlington Family, Im a neighbor living in the area.
Having heard of your most recent loss, I want to leave you a brief post. I too, well know the grief of losing love ones, and that at times like these, it is encouraging just to know that others are thinking about us. Something that has really helped me to cope with such losses, is the wonderful promise of Christ Jesus, recorded for our comfort at John 5:28,29. I hope, that when you are feeling up to it, that you are going to look up these powerful Scriptures, in your copy of The Bible. Also, I hope that this brief note,finds The Family feeling as good as can be expected Today.
With Greatest Sympathy, Your Neighbor : P.D.Walker.

Memories are a source of comfort when a loved one dies. They serve to keep that one alive in the heart and mind. I hope you will also be comforted by this promise that originate with the God of all comfort. This promise is stated at Isaiah 26:3, 19. There you will find these words of comfort and hope: "You will safeguard those who fully lean on you; you will give the continous peace, because it is in you that they trust.....Your dead will live. My coroses will rise up. Awake and shout joyfully, you resudents in dust! For your dew is as the dew of the morning, and the earth will let those powerless in death come to life." So sorry for your loss.

My heart goes out to you Mary Lou and Mac's wonderful, beautiful children and loved ones. I knew Mac as a man of great principle, love, and care. He came to my mama's funeral and always showed up when there was family need as his good mama, My Aunt Myrtle did. I will always carry his good memory and remain thankful to him. My good cousin, Mac, is; in deed, a man to celebrate!
God's blessings always, Lou (Lou came from our Great Grand Mother's name, Louchester). I always knew I was in big trouble when Grandma Langdon called out the door using "Lou Hope come here". She was the only one to use the Lou part. We all had many wonderful days around her table, the best of many good memories and no food or biscuits could compare .
