“Lorraine and I moved to Estell Manor in 1988 and no matter how you looked at it, Lefty always lived Left of us! Not being from the area while being first time home owners, Lefty had his way of letting us know that we were Lost, but he was always there to help out. An odd connection, Lorraine went to Thorne Jr H.S, a stones throw from where she grew up. It was named in his brother's Honor from WW11. Lefty you had a Good Run and it was Our Pleasure knowing you! Dear Bonnie, if you ever need...
“Lois and family,
So sad to hear of your dad's passing. May the memories of happier times give you comfort. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
“There are many things that I will miss now that you are gone..... What I will miss the least is your twisted sense of humor. What will I miss most?? Well, that would be your laugh....you had a great laugh.

My brother was a 24-hour, hands-on "Sanford & Son" kinda' fella', always puttering and handy, scheming to outsmart the deer from eating the crops, always silently and quietly making a loud presence, and, without fanfare carried a deep love and concern for family. He took a chunk of us with him, but somehow, if ever, or how ever, his indestructible being will continue to walk amongst us! Interesting...
“Many, many memories of Mr. Thorne as Holly was my best friend and neighbor growing up in Estell Manor. We are so sorry for your loss but are rejoicing with you because we will see him again in Glory! Rest well, Mr. Thorne, in the arms of our precious Lord and Savior!
