My heart bleeds for my sister, brother-in-law and my beautiful niece and her 2 sons. So dear to my heart and I will never forget their smiling faces as long as I live. I will never understand why they were taken from us. My tears are all that I have now when I think of them. I will cherish their time on earth forever and they will always be in my heart.

I will never understand why things like this happen, but I do know that Desere' is with her boys and there is no other place she would rather be. My condolences go out to their family and other friends that knew these wonderful people.

Our prayers are with the Thornton and Rodriquez families and for those responsible for any foul or malicious act causing this reality check for us all that we are not promised tomorrow and should not take anything for granted or waste any time securing our eternity with Christ.
Forever in our hearts, but now gloriously rejoicing in Heaven awaiting the arrival of their friends and loved ones to join them in the untold splendor.

My heart goes out to her Mom, Dad, Brandon,Jean, Bobby, John,Stephen, Charley and Patti. I love you guys. Know that they are in a far better place where there is no pain. God has them wrapped in his arms so now it is you who are suffering their loss. Let God ease your pain. He will stand by you always.

This is a true tragic indeed, but it is also a cry out for help in our society that this has to happen there is a serious problem in our society that something like this is capable of happening I'm not asking for perfection I'm just asking those out there in the world if you know anyone one who needs help who is troubled and don't know who to turn to to please talk to them see what is wrong to prevent things like this from happening, because our trouble world needs some guidance. If we don't choose to stand for something we will never stand for nothing. My heart go's out to the Thornton family.

Memory Eternal, Desere, Jerrod, and Anthony. To those who knew these folks, may you find comfort, mercy and peace in each other and in your faiths! To those who did this terrible crime, may you burn in h***! What cowards you are. I hope your mommas disown you.

Our hearts goes out for the family, we are really sorry to hear this tragic news and they're good people, who ever did this should be punish and no mercy for them, and people in pulaski should do something not just talk about what happen and hopefully that they won't stop looking and finding those who commit the crime. Pulaski are just good in talking about whats going on in peoples lives they should clean their own act before judging others. What a waste Desere is a beautiful person in and out so think people in pulaski, may the family will have peace and i know Desere is in GODS hands and the kids

It's not true that Matthew died from his burns. He is in Vanderbilt's burn unit, and he will be arrested soon. I guess this just shows how much small town talk can be trusted for its accuracy.

Six months have passes and not a day goes by that I don't see their smiling faces. God has a funny way of showing us that he loves us. I guess this is another test for all of us to endure. My heart goes out to Brandon, Ivan and Nancy, Charlie and Patty. I know how I feel, but can't begin to fathom what you have gone through and will continue to go through.
Know this: There are people in this community who love you all and will do anything for you. You are all exceptionally strong people, and still role models for so many.
This is a terrible tragedy, but we will carry these three extraordinary people in our hearts forever. These were the cutest kids ever. Desire' was such a strong and positive person and could move mountains with her smile.
They will all be sorely missed.
