Uncle Arthur, this is who you have been to me since I was knee-high to a grasshopper and you will remain so in my heart forever... I'm so sorry for your families loss and the Town of Thornton. Never have I seen two people like you and Aunt Irma that dedicated so much of your lives to your town! I'm sure I'll never witness this again. We all have so many memories of your both... Our first trip from Ohio to NH when there was not highway, only Route 3. The crank phone on the wall in your livingroom/diningroom. The bedpan that my mother wouldn't allow Aunt Irma to leave in the room for us... Always being there for us when we needed help as "flatlanders" that moved up to NH and became your Niece, great-niece and great nephew. Thanksgivings, Christmas times and just everyday times. When you and Aunt Irma stood up for my Mom & Dad at their wedding on that snowy November evening. I could go on an on and on... Mostly I will miss those beautiful eyes and amazing smile and great big hug! Rest in peace and find your beautiful bride you have been without for so many years, find my Dad too and talk a little hunting and fishing! He'll be happy you have joined him.

Arthur was so welcoming to me when I moved to Thornton in 1999. We shared some experiences with town government and I valued his knowledge and his passion for being involved. He even got to the 2029 March Town Meeting and it was great to see him again. I a grateful for his friendship and Thornton owes him so much!
