Card of Thanks
To the Citizens of Gilchrist County I do not know how to say thank you for all of the love and support that you have shown us in the last few months, both during my accident and the loss of my Daddy, Dale Rogers. You all are the reason that I have chosen to settle and raise my children here. Our roots run deep in Gilchrist County and now I know why.
We are eternally grateful to all of you.
In Christian Love,
Jodi, Kelsie and Cody Turner
