Twenty Years!

Twenty years ago this past Saturday my father, Warren Gayle Turner, Sr., passed away. He succumbed to his eighth heart attack over a course of 17 years. Daddy was a bull of a man. Confident in his abilities. Compassionate and caring to his family, employees and pretty much anyone he met in need. He was an optimist. He was one of the folks who always saw the glass as half full and made the best of every situation. His belief that he would succeed fueled our belief as well. I am amazed that twenty years have passed. But I can say not a day has gone by that I have not drawn comfort and strength from my belief in him and his belief in me. I quote Henry Ford all the time that those who believe they can and those who believe they can’t are both right. But it was my dad who taught me that lesson. So, twenty years have passed and I continue on in the firm belief that “I Can”. And believe me when I say, “You can, too.”

    My Good Friend and Brother Gayle ~

    Although I never met your Dad, I feel I know something about him….through you. Because you, sir, are confident in your abilities, compassionate and caring to all families, are an optimist who sees the glass as half full, are one who endeavors to make yummy lemonade out of any curve ball lemons that life throws at us, and are one who believes that great things are always possible. You taught me that. And I thank you for it.

    Wishing you and yours the best as always.

    My dear friend, your kind words brought tears to my eyes. It is my greatest goal that I live up to the model my Dad’s life offered. I miss you and hope you’re doing well.
