Bonnie Turner

The Turner Family Relief Fund

On Saturday, March 15, 2008, tragedy struck Mike and Bonnie Turner when a tornado struck their home in Aragon, Ga. Bonnie was killed in this tragedy and Mike was critically injured. Their entire house and their kennels were destroyed along with everything they owned. Many of their dogs were also killed, however some survived with varying injuries. Mike has undergone major surgery and faces a long and difficult recovery. We know that Bonnie would want her dogs and Mike taken care of and we are working on that.

Bill and I have the honor of calling Bonnie and Mike Turner our friends. We were fortunate to share their dream retirement place on Watt's Bar Lake, TN, 21 days before Bonnie left us.

While our husbands worked on the boat dock, Bonnie and I played with dogs and watched the gulls fly in. Bonnie insisted I take pictures of the gulls. Amazingly, the first picture of this album, developed exactly as you see it, when I took it off my digital camera. It is "Bonnie's Blue Sky", with a gull soaring high.

If you are interested in any of the photos please email me. I am happy to share them to benefit Mike and Bonnie.
