Ivor “Jack” Turner

I have not written anything for 10 days.  I am sure that I will be reflecting both privately and publicly about the events that have transpired, but not tonight.

I will just say that early Monday morning my dear friend and coffee drinking buddy shared our last cup of coffee together.  And today, we laid Jack to rest.

Tomorrow we will not be able to share coffee and breakfast together.
