Not sure what to say?

I have been very grateful to know Mr. Thornton for many years. I have always regarded him highly. He was a kind and thoughtful gentleman that was very strong in his faith and always spoke fondly of his family. I will truly miss talking to him on the phone on a regular basis. He will be dearly missed. My prayers, thoughts and sympathies are with you all during this difficult time.

We were blessed to know him A real gentleman who always had a kind word. May he rest peacefully with the lord and god bless his family

My deepest sympathy for the Thornton family during this time of sadness. The loss of a long-time Jacksonville native such as Mr. Thornton will be felt by friends and family for a long time. Prayers for peace and support during this time.
