In Memory of Don L Turney


Do not take for granted

the dawn of each new day.

Live life to the fullest

make new friends along the way.

Be truthful and be faithful

to each new friend you find.

And you'll always be remembered

 by the ones you leave behind.

Do not take your life for granted

 for tomorrow may not come.

Live each day to its fullest,

Until GOD calls you home.
