We at the Turner Funeral Home and Turner-Myers Funeral Home are absolutely 'blessed' by the gift given to us by Canine Companions for Independence--Aragon, our Golden Retriever/Yellow Labrador mix and our new grief counselor.

Our own Pam Turner attended a weeklong training session after which we were given Aragon, the first therapy dog at a funeral home in our area. Aragon is dedicated to helping families who have suffered a loss.

Aragon has been the subject of numerous newspaper articles and TV spots-in fact he is quite a celebrity in Lawrence County and is welcomed and known at most public buildings and businesses around town. In addition to his duties at the funeral home helping families (if wanted, he sits for arrangements, visitations, and funerals), he is a frequent visitor at the Ellwood City Hospital, Mary Evans Extended Care Center, many nursing homes, and has given many speeches (actually Pam gives the speeches!) and presentations.

We completely support Canine Companions for Independence and hope that you will donate to help provide assistance to many of our citizens with a disability and who use wheelchairs. We also support the Lawrence County Humane Society, Beaver County Humane Society, Promises for Pets (New Castle, PA), and Animal Friends (Pittsburgh).

Its heartwarming to see Aragon Work his magic with families, many seemingly inconsolable. He truly is "A Miracle with Fur." Canine Companions for Independence---"Some People Wait a Lifetime for a Miracle, We Raise Them One at a Time." Won't you please help us?
