Condolence: Mr. Thornton,
I am very sorry for your loss. I had the privilege of being one of Teresa's nurses at her Primary Care Physician's office. I am very glad I had the opportunity to see Teresa at Hospice House. What a very special lady you had.

Condolence: My sincere condolences to the family of Teresa Thornton. "T" was working with my grandmother, Lois in the Dietary department of KNI when we first met. She possessed such a strong & loving personality. If Teresa liked you, you were instant family!She stayed in touch with my grandmother after her retirement, and for years before "Mama" passed in 2010.

Family: May the Lord guide you through this difficult time. You're in my thoughts & prayers. Forever grateful to you Teresa. R.I.P.

Condolence: T was like a ray of fresh sunshine. She was always dressed for success. She loved life and her family. She would often talk fondly of her twins. I knew her from KNI and I would see her a the St. Francis Cancer Center. She would always wear a smile, was kind and loving. She had a positive attitude even when times were tough. She took such good care of the KNI folks. She always would greet me with a warm hug and tell me she was glad to see me. I will miss you T. RIP my friend.

Condolence: I worked with T at KNI for 21 years. I wasn't sure how to take her forward personality at first, but once I got to know her...she became a friend. T reminded me of the importance of speaking up and standing up. I will also never forget her sense of style. She was always sharp dressed! She even made sweat pants look fashionable! Go girl!
I was able to meet her sons last summer while they were here for a visit. She beamed with pride while introducing them and every time she spoke of her family. You are all blessed to have had her. She will definitely be missed by many!
Peace and prayers to T's family and friends!
