Porter Family,

Wee were saddened to learn of your mom's passing. We have so many good memories of her, particularly from the church functions. I'm sure she will be missed by all who loved her so dearly. Our prayers go out to all of you guys and girls we've known for years. It is really comforting to know that she now rests in a better place where there is no pain or sorrow. God bless you all.

Debbie & Doug Wick
