Eileen, I was so sad when I found out this morning that Mr. Turner had passed away. He was always the highlight of my day when he walked in the doors of the library. The funny things he would us girls making $40 an hour! So wrong on that! He was always looking to see if us girls had any sort of food sitting next to us and then he would take it and pretend to walk out the door with it. His humor was unlike anyone I've ever known. I am going to miss him soooo much. Sorry for your loss. He was such a sweet guy.
