    RIP CF Member Don Turner

    For those of you who go way back on Carriefans, I'm sure you fondly remember Don Turner (donturner98). He was a member of this forum from the start and was a moderator for a long time. He was an avid fan of Carrie, having attended around 60 concerts. Many of us enjoyed his many wonderful concert reviews and his quirky sense of humor.

    With the permission of his son, I'm posting the unfortunate news that Don passed away yesterday. He fought a courageous battle with leukemia and had undergone a stem cell transplant a few months ago.

    I know I can speak for the many of us on here that met Don that he was a wonderfully kind man and will be sorely missed. RIP Don.

    RIP, Don!

    Thank you, Heather of the news. Even though, I never met him in person, I remember him fondly. I remember he used to go to Carrie's concerts with you as if you guys were completing for Carrie's concert stars....ha..ha...

    May he rest in peace with the Lord.

    This news sadens me. I had met Don at many concerts. He was a great person and will be missed. I found him on Facebook again just last year and "talked" to him. I wish him peace. RIP Don Turner. (And thanks Heather for letting us know.)

    I met Don once, when he flew to MN to see Carrie. His concert reviews were always so funny. He had the most crazy experiences. I have lots of great memories of all his blue hair stories.We kept in touch with him, and were so sad to find out he was fighting leukemia. He always wrote very detailed updates on his carepages blog. Of course, no matter how lousy he felt, he always found humor in the situation. He always ended every blog with scripture. He was truly an inspiration. He will be greatly missed, but I will see him again some day. Of this I am sure. Prayers to his son Jim and his granddaughter Haillie, who he loved so much.

    Thanks all. It was even mentioned on his obit that he was an active member and mod here. I'll be sure to pass on your well wishes to his son.

    I haven't been around in ages and I am bringing up an old thread. Some of my finest memories from this site came from that man. From wenobears to blue hair he was always good for a laugh. Truly saddened by this news. He was a great man.
