"I started going to visit her because I thought, 'I need to put this time into our friendship, so she knows we haven't forgotten her,'" Cher said.
"So we all took turns going and spending time with her and it made her happy."
She recalled Turner telling her, "I can't spend too much time."
However, she said, "Then five hours later we were laughing like crazy…She was having a good time in spite of the fact that she was really sick and not wanting people to know about it."
