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.
