Doris, We lived next door to you in Brookneal. Read Ken's obit with great interest since we lost Polly McDowell there's been no contact. Sent it to The Hatfields. They were ours at Midway Baptist & your close friends. I sent them the obit. They want to get in touch with you. glenn R Hatfield, 11 Luddington Rd,W. Orange NJ 07052.

I would like to express our sympathy to the family in the passing of Rev. Thornton from the family of Virginia Sowell in Brookneal, VA. Rev. Thornton was pastor in Brookneal when I joined the church and he and his wife Doris ministered to my father and mother when they were in Brookneal in many ways.

I was saddened to hear of Ken's passing. He was always a friend and colleague in ministry to me, and was well loved by all of the Pastoral Care staff, and indeed, by everyone at Hendrick Medical Center in Abilene. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time.
Bruce Lampert, Director of Pastoral Care, Hendrick Medical Center
As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.
We share in your loss and celebrate Ken's precious life. He was a friend and full of grace to all the lives he touched. Ken's greatest gift was the joy he brought relentlessly with a spirit of hope and confidence through Christ. We will miss you Ken and will always be inspired by your compassion for those needing healing and hope through our Lord. Blessings to the family, The Staff of Tennova Hospice, formerly Mercy Hospice in Knoxville, Tennessee
