The time has come for me to say farewell to family and friends, and move on to exciting adventures in heaven.
Close friend Ernie (Sherry) remember the good times. Thanks to my sisters; Dori, Cherie, Toni (Warren) for always being loving and supportive. To my son John (Kim) thanks for being my best friend from the beginning and having the talent to make me a proud and grateful Dad. To my girls; April (Matt) and Tricia, thanks for all the love and laughter, be happy. Dustan (Meghan) stay wise, stay strong, get to know Jesus, have a good life. To my wife’s family, you are admired for your faith and knowledge of the Word. To our Nicole (Chris) you’ve made me proud, keep shining for Jesus. To my 24 grandkids and 6 great grandbabies (one on the way), stay on the straight and narrow, keep a sense of humour, make your folks proud. To my “bestest friend and devoted wife, Luci, you’ve been my anchor in this downhill spiral—you have stayed true to the end, I never doubted you would. I’ll be watching over you all and expect to see each one of you follow me to glory.
John Thornborough: April 11, 1947,

“Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine
Oh, What a foretaste of glory divine.
Heir of salvation, purchase of God
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.”
