  6. To the Turrentine family, I am truly sorry about the death of your dear loved one. From reading the obituary, it seems like Joe will be missed by many who loved him dearly. I have also lost family members in death that has been painful and a great void in my heart. I found comfort in the promises of the Bible, where it tells us that those asleep in the memorial tombs will be awaken by Jesus’ call. Yes, awaken to perfect life on a peaceful earth. Think of being reunited with Joe and others that are no longer with you. Please take a few minutes to read John 5: 28 & 29, and Acts 24:15. For more information visit:
