Funeral Fund for Dustin Turner
This page is for donations to the mother of Dustin Turner for his funeral costs. Dustin tragically lost his life Tuesday, June 4th, 2013 after being pulled under by a strong current in the Cape Fear River. Dustin was an honor roll student who was 2 days away from graduating with the rest of his senior class from Cape Fear High School when this tragic event occurred. His mother, Sandra Turner, is a single mom who has been raising her 3 boys on her own since the sudden death of her husband, Steve Turner, in October 2001 of a heart attack. The oldest of Sandra's 3 boys, Westly, is autistic. Sandra was a stay at home mom of the 3 young boys when her husband died and has been through very hard times since then due to having to be home to care for the oldest due to his autism. She is a amazing, loving mother and has had to deal with more pain in her life then any person should. Something like this is not obviously what one plans for. The last thing anyone wants is for her to stress about giving her son a proper burial. Any and all help is appreciated. Please help spread the word on this fund as well. Thank you and God bless.

I believe that Ms. Turner will no longer be eligible for anything since she has lost her youngest son...therefore unless she is disabled or over 60 she will receive no income for herself to live...encourage the ppl to keep giving..she is in what is called a black out period for widowed women..unless they have children they get nothing...God bless her and encourage people to keep on giving..
So please people, pass this message on and please continue to share this page and ask for help. We together can help. Please keep sharing!

I am so happy the wonderful people of Fayetteville and surrounding areas came together and opened their hearts and wallets to help this family during this time of tragedy. God Bless the Turner Family.
I was one of the donators to this poor family who lost a son and brother to a drowning accident. I am not trying to get anyone to donate anything, just wanted to let all my loved ones know that God and the human spirit is still working in this world today! Although I could not donate a huge amount, the little I gave help to raise almost $10,000 for this young man's funeral expenses. I don't know the family or the organizers of this event but I can tell you I have had this kind of thing in my own backyard and know how devastating it can be for a family. God Bless all of you that gave and all of you that keep this Mother and two remaining sons in your prayers.
My heart breaks for his mom, I balled watching this video!! You all are in my thoughts and prayers!!! There's no words to help the pain, but he's def looking down on you mom, and dancing around celebrating his graduation with his daddy!!! :) Keep smiling!
