  4. Please accept my and my family’s condolences. To Mrs Paul Turner and to all of Paul Turner’s family I know that Paul will be missed by you all. Through some of the stories that Duane has shared with us at work I feel that I know a little bit about Paul, that he was a good man, loved his family, hard work and Pueblo. I’m sorry I never got to meet him in person; but someday Lord willing, I’ll meet him and when I do I’m sure I’ll find him at work fixing or building something, content in knowing he has a good family and a great wife.
