From: Nick D. Turner Jul 29 2019 7:58PM Johnny, I was so sorry to hear about June. I know that there is nothing I can say or do that will take the hurt away. However, She and Bain will be glad to see each other and I do believe that will be happening this week. From: Craig Meadows Jul 30 2019 1:10PM So sorry to hear about June's passing. I really only knew her well for the 4 years she lived in Beckley, but feel like I knew her much longer. I was a friend to her sons and consider myself fortunate to have had the influence of her and Art on my life as a child. I don't have a single memory of June without a smile on her face and love in her heart. You always felt genuinely welcomed in her home and in her presence. I can say above all else, she was a real example to the world around her on how to treat a child with genuine care, concern and compassion. I'm so grateful for the people like her that were a part of my childhood. I extend my sincere sympathies to her family and hope that in time you will find peace in God's promises that have been made to all of us.
