Tom Turner

Well written, and straight from the heart Laura, sometimes our true path lies not with family legacy, but our own unique gifts.


Thank you, Tom! You are so smart. That is so true, we do have to share our gifts. It is our legacy, too. Thank you for the kind thoughts.

Stormy I

Well said. Thanks for sharing your positive spin.


Thank you for reading, Stormy. It's been a hard life lesson, but it feels good to write about it. Thanks again.


Your father would have wanted you to blossom into the Laura Turner and Tom Turner who's seed he planted. The beautiful flowers that you are would make him smile. You have freed his spirit as much as you have freed your own. The winds will take you to your next destination. And whatever that is, would make him proud. I am still searching for my true calling. Life didn't exactly throw me the ball that I was expecting to catch. It's almost like I came out wearing a catcher's mitt, expecting to be thrown a baseball. But the reality was, it was a basketball that nearly knocked me off my feet. They are really hard to catch while wearing a big old leather glove...


You are sweet, Val. I'm crying just reading what you wrote. Life is such a challenge sometimes, and just when you think you have it figured out, the challenges come around again. I guess it's all in our approach to it. I understand what you mean about trying to catch a basketball with a baseball mitt. I've been doing that for a long time. All the books I read say that if you are in the flow of life things are a lot easier. I just haven't found that to be true. I have found that it's a day-by-day soul check, and adapting to the "basketballs" we're thrown. In all, thank you for your kind comments. They mean more than you could know. I'm struggling with the losses; both of my dad and now his business. It's nice to know -- from a respected peer -- that he would just love us for us. Thank you so much -- God bless XO.


I'm sure that his greatest, most proud accomplishment, was in raising two amazing children. His business was perhaps a close second, but not without you guys being a part of it. Sending much love and peace to you


Thank you for sharing your beautiful thoughts an words. You are always an inspiration.


Thank you, Val -- it means so much XO.
