    My thoughts are with you and your family Carolyn as you process the loss of a loved one, hold each other together, and also manage the organizational pieces. It is never easy to mourn the loss of a loved one but I know Christmas is a particularly tough time. Be well, and rest in the knowledge that your Dad must have been an amazing person to raise such an incredibly compassionate, caring, and joyful daughter.

    Yes- there is a reception at Turner Family Funeral Home following the graveside service. The reception hall will be open at 2:00.

    My dad (Edward Ksiazek) is unable to walk to the graveside – will there be a meet and greet after?
