Grandpa James (Tee) Turner Funeral Service

Our Grandpa Tee (James Turner) beat colon cancer a couple years ago, but unfortunately he now has stage 4 pancreatic cancer and it’s gone unknown/treated until a couple weeks ago. He declined chemo as he should because he’s in no condition to undergo chemo, it would kill him. My mother requested he be released from the hospital so he wouldn’t die alone and he’d be in the presence of close family and friends. His condition is rapidly declining; I spoke to him on FaceTime last week and this week he is unresponsive and not eating. The nurse has already stated their really isn’t any getting better for him and to just try and keep him comfortable and continue to talk to him and tell him how much we love him. 

Our grandpa doesn’t have life insurance nor does he have savings. We just want to be able to provide him with a decent funeral service and provide the family comfort knowing that he will not wait in some morgue until all the funds are raised. 

Any assistance is greatly appreciated! And I’m sure he’d hug you all knowing that strangers, friends and family have helped lay him to rest.

****If you knew Tee, you’d know that he was a very loud outspoken man, In a good way! He was definitely a jokester and loved food and his beer! He was so full of life and would give whatever he could to help the next person. Tee spent a great deal of his time washing windows at service stations to make ends meet and pretty to socialize with his customers. He’s going to truly be missed!
