Our precious Briley FAITH Turner went to be with her Heavenly Father on Tuesday, December 11, 2012 after she was born with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) on October 11, 2012. She courageously fought for her life but was ready to go to her eternal home. God used Briley to touch many lives in her 61 days here on Earth. We couldn't be prouder of our little girl. Briley is survived by her parents, Josh and Crystal Turner and big brother Jude of Benton; grandparents Ricky and Anita Cain of Pearcy, Jeff and Beverly Turner of Glenwood, and David and Kathy Fogarty of Bryant; great-grandparents Dolores Hunt of Ft. Worth, TX, Harold and Joyce Turner of Glenwood, Earl and Joy Harvey of Hot Springs, and Allen and Wilma Long of Arlington, TX; aunts Shanda Miller of Pearcy, Kristen Turner of Bryant; cousin Cara Miller of Pearcy; and a host of family and friends. Briley met her great-grandparents Gigi, Grandad and Papaw in Heaven. Honorary Pallbearers include: members of Holland Chapel Baptist Church, ACH NICU staff and PalCare team, Kimberly Allison, Calin Cook, Laura (RT), Katherine (RT), Baptist NICU staff, and all of her FAITHful prayer warriors. Please join us in celebrating Briley's life. Visitation will be Friday, December 14th from 5-8PM and services will be Saturday, December 15th at 10AM, both will be at Holland Chapel Baptist Church in Benton. Interment will be at Pinecrest Memorial Park in Alexander. Arrangements are being made by Griffin-Leggett-Forest Hills in Alexander. In lieu of flowers, there has been a fund established in Briley's name at Holland Chapel Baptist Church. We ask that you do not wear all black, wear bright colors and bows, just like Briley!
