I am so sorry to hear of this loss, another great "Porter" is now gone from us, yet on the other side, he is I'm sure rejoycing with those who pasted before him. They can only be enjoying a celeabration! One,well desired party at that! Wish I could make it up to the service but can't due to PT being done on my shoulder right now. My prayers are with you all... Love Penny, Dave, Tim and Tom, Plus Melissa and Jason too!
