My name is Lamicka Adams and I am the daughter of Girard Turner. On August 21 my father was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer that metastasized to the brain, liver and gut. The doctors predicted that he would pass the end of December 2016. But I am blessed to say he is still here with me. He has recently been sent home on Hospice and I am his care taker. My father doesn't have much family so the burden of his death has been placed in my hands. He has 3 children a son 28 years old who is incarcerated and has about 24 more years to do and he has no children. Me I'm 27 years old with 2 children(daughter). And a 24 year old son who has been battling his own battles with life. As a daughter I feel it is my responsibility to take care of my father till the end and I believe that with the help of others I can get everything that needs to be done handled. I would really love to be able to set everything up in advance so that when it's time to put him to rest I will be able to mourn in peace. Please help me. I also want to take the time now to thank everyone for helping me.

First off I would like to take this time to thank everyone who has made a donation. A few days ago I didn't know what I was going to do but because of you all I can mourn my father's passing in peace. Daddy took is last breath in front of his wife and I January 27th at 7:47am. Though it hurts so bad I'm happy he's no longer suffering. These last four months have been really rough for him. I'm blessed to have been able to stand by his side through it all. Daddy was baptized and a member of a local church so I believe with my heart that his soul is in good hands. Once again thanks again for the many donations and Facebook shares I don't know what I would have done without you all. He is being cremated and I will keep everyone posted on when his memorial service. Until then keep his family and friends highly lifted in prayer. Xoxoxo and may God bless you all.

2 days ago the doctors said daddy only has a few days left no longer than a week. He's on a high dose of morphine. He is getting it every 2 1/2-3 hours but after 2 hours he is in major pain. His urine is darker than dark tea. We were told that this is a sign that his organs were shutting down. I've gotten to the point where I just want him in peace and no pain. I hate seeing him like this but everyone has there own battle.

Daddy is a soldier! He going to fight till the end. I keep reminding him that God needs him more than I do and that everyone loves him. He's scared to go because he thinks everyone will be mad at him I told him everything is OK because God said it's OK.

My father is still fighting but as of now he is having seizures everyday and he is very weak. He can't do anything for himself. He is no longer eating. He is bed bound. They switched all of his medications over to liquid. He is in no pain because he is on morphine. He's also on brain inflammatory steroid and anti seziure meds. And from time to time he's on oxygen. His disease is progressing rapidly and I was told the suffering will be over soon. I just want to pay for his service now so that when he pass I can mourn instead of stress on gathering money for him. Please help me.. I also want to thank everyone who has made donations and I want to thank everyone who has shared this post. God please cover me and I ask that everyone keep me and my family in your prayers.
This was him and his girlfriend on January 5th on her birthday.
