I am glad I lucked up on this site because I know David Thornton belongs in
your Hall of Fame. He is a good Christian man. I have not been around him
much but my friends who work at the jail always say kind things about him. -- Robert Moore
I would like to vote for David Thornton, he is a wonderful man. I feel privileged to have met him. I met him my freshman year when he volunteered to be the head coach of the boys varsity soccer team, where he is doing a fine job coaching and also shaping us into young men. - Chris Lopez
