Laura what beautiful words about your dad and what a great way to live your life. I guess i did not realize what you did for a living but I am interested in learning more. I just joined the YMCA for exercise and am part of the biggest loser program we are doing at work. Decided it was time for me to take care of my body, mind and spirit and lose some weight and have more respect for myself and my body image. Hoping we can all get together soon and I can learn more from you. As you say family is important and a cousin dinner should be coming up soon. Again, we are so sorry for your loss. You and Ed have been through a lot lately and we are thinking of you both. Love you guys. Oh and tell Ed sister Margaret said hello.


Hi Valerie, Thank you for reading. I am happy that you have chosen a healthy path. You will be rewarded. Thank you for all your kind words. I will look forward to getting together soon!

Laura, I never met your father but he was a huge influence on my life. I grew up in Victor. Every day on the school bus I would pass by Turner Automotive and dream about one day owning a corvette. I would longingly see the cars gleam and shine from the loving care your father provided. I often saw him outside taking care of the cars. In 1983, before college, I got a poster with a beautiful covette on it captioned "The rewards of higher education." That poster went to college with me and was in my office during graduate school. I packed that poster away for my girls when they got older. Life put my plans for a corvette on hold for a while. But I never stopped driving by Turner Automotive and dreaming when we were in town to visit family. In 2004 I finally bought my first corvette. My older daughter took my 1983 poster to college with her in 2006. She is now in medical school. My younger daughter took the same poster with her to college and she is finishing up nursing school. My poster is a bit ratty now as it has been taped, pinned and tacked to many walls over the years. Now it proudly hangs in my garage next to several other corvette posters. I owe your father a heartfelt thank you for helping me to make my dreams come true and pass that dream onto my daughters! His love and pride in Turner Automotive, his work ethic, his love of family rubbed off on me, even from a distance. Thank you for the memories.


Hi Bridget. Thank you so much for your kind words. I am so amazed at how many lives my dad has touched. Thank you for sharing that beautiful story. I will be sure to pass it along to my family. Please stop by the next time you are in town, we would love to see you :-) Much Love, Laura
