It's been ten years since you were called up to heaven to sing with the angels. I still listen to the albums that I purchased when I was just 15. You will always be part of my country music.

To your family that I'm sure still miss you very much, Porter was a very, very great singer and he is still loved by his fans.

Writing this on behalf of my mother. My Mom loved one man consistently throughout her life. Porter Wagoner is the name all 5 of us children grew up knowing! We took her to Nashville and to the gravesite. It was then that she asked to be left alone for a while. We watched from a distance, his headstone not in place yet, she cleared off grass around his wife's headstone and then sat on the ground. We could see her talking, but unknown what was said. Mom passed May of 2015. Her request for Porter's "Satisfied Mind" played. I have to believe, he was one of the many that greater her into God's Kingdom. God Bless the family of the Man who owned my Mama's heart.
June 25, 2016
A great music legend.

Dearest Porter, I was blessed to have called you my friend. You called me your buddy.Now, in Heaven, I'm sure you realize how truly important you were to me. Those years I visited your performances, I will always cherish. I found out about your passing too late to make arrangements to "see you away" to our Lord. I know my parents are enjoying your company there. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you, your wise words, quick wit & warm friendly manner & the beam of your disarming smile. I listen to your recordings often & reflect. God Bless Debra, Denise, Richard, & your loved ones. I will always love you too, my friend- "D"

I was very saddened when i heard the news of Porter's passing i have listened and watched his music for the last 30 years He was a great singer and sang songs of his journey through life.

May you rest in peace Porter, although you are not here, the memory of you and your music will never die,When i have one of your songs playing, and i am singing along with you, i hope you can listen in.

I was so blessed to get to meet Porter Wagoner, 23 April 2005. A man had told me that the young man from the Opry Square dancers and waived me up I said I didn't believe him but the second time he did it, I was up there with the Opry Squaare dancers and at the end I got to meet Porter Wagoner, he was so kind and I miss him and Dolly Pardon singing together too.

For Porter...Remembered are
you many moments as a
Grand Ole Opry Star. Your effort
in launching Dolly Parton is
another gift from you that keeps
on giving.

WEEP NOT FOR ME


Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.

I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.

Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.

Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.

Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
with a smile and a sigh.

I grew up watching Porter Wagoner, at my Grandmother's house, on Saturday afternoons. I would tag a long with my Dad to my Grandmother's, so that he could mow her lawn, and she and I would watch Porter Wagoner's Show and the Wilburn Brother's Show. We had a grand time together watching those shows. All of these country music entertainers and legends are sadly missed today. Thank you, Porter Wagoner, for all of your many years of dedicated service to the country music industry.

With Deep Sympathy,

To Porter's family, I was shocked to hear of his death. I loved watching him as a young girl in the 60's. His show was down home type of entertainment and I loved to hear he and Dolly sing their duets. He will be sorely missed. I still watch his old shows on RFD channel. He was a great entertainer. God Bless you all and I know he is singing in heaven.
November 14, 2007
Loved your music for many years on TV and the radio..............
now you will be singing with the angels.
November 11, 2007
As a child, I lived in a small town.
We did not have a TV antenna and we only got 1 TV station. Every Saturday afternoon, I watched the Porter Wagoner Show. I had often hoped that in my lifetime I could have met him or just written him a letter to let him know how much I loved his music. When I think of my childhood, one of the things that comes to mind right away is Porter Wagoner.
I hope that someday his TV shows will be available on DVD.
Porter may be gone, but his music and legacy will live on forever. I shall never forget him.
November 10, 2007
My grandparents raised me and we always watched the Grand Ole Opry and the Porter Wagner show. I loved to hear him and Dolly sing. I will miss him.
November 07, 2007
FOR THE FAMILY,

May God Bless And Comfort You
By: Charles G. Turner, Sr.


At times like this when we don’t know what to do
Just talk to God and he will see you through
When words sometimes just won’t do and you don’t know what to say
Just talk to God and let him have his way

When friends and family come and go
Just remember that God has an open door
At times like this when words alone won’t do
May God bless and comfort you
November 04, 2007
You will be missed.My prayers go out to your family.
November 04, 2007
When I was a little girl. My mom would always watch his show. We really enjoyed his singing.My heart goes out to the Porter family. They are in our prayers. Porter will be greatly missed.
November 04, 2007
I can still remember back when I was a little girl listening to Porter Wagoner sing when Momma and Daddy had company over and were playing Porter's albums on the old record player. Even when Daddy was "out on the road", Momma and us kids would entertain ourselves as we used batons for microphones while listening and singing along with Porter. I grew up loving country music, as do my own children today. If Daddy (Jack Ward of Arlington, TX), hadn't passed away in Feb.,) he'd be deeply saddened by the loss of one of his favorite singers. But it comforts me to know, that Porter sings in heaven now, and I've sure Daddy is a happy camper right about now. The most beautiful song I still love to hear today is Green Green Grass Of Home. No doubt that now, Porter has finally gone home to the eternally green green grass in his heavenly home where we never grow old,nor never die. Porter was blessed with a gift, and in return, he blessed us old time country music lovers by sharing his beautiful voice and songs with us. To his family and friends, I pray you find comfort knowing he rests with Jesus now and continues to bless those in heaven with his music, as he blessed so many here on earth. May he now rest in beautiful and eternal peace. I bet Daddy met him at the Pearly Gates, said, "Come on in", pulled him up a chair with a cold beer in his hand, and is sittin' back listening to Porter sing with that faraway, content look he always had when listening to beautiful music such as Porter's. Rest in peace, Mr. Wagoner. We'll be seein' you.
November 04, 2007
heaven now has it,s own country music star.rest in peace porter and thank you for being with us for as long as you were.
November 04, 2007

I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.

My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.

They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.

Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.

But of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories of you that are the most precious.

No more rhinestones...You are now a sparkling diamond!
November 02, 2007
Porter was always a great part of the Opry. He always represented what I thought a Country Music Star should be. He will be greatly missed.
November 02, 2007
I have always enjoyed listening to Porter and always liked his music. He will truly be missed on the Opry.
November 02, 2007
My childhood memories involve my Grandpa singing "The Green, Green Grass of Home" over and over again. So much so, that I can still hear it in my mind 20+ years later. Which leads me to think of Pslam 23; I am quite certain that God himself took you by the hand and lead you beside not only still waters, but the green, green grass of you most deserved home. God bless you Mr. Wagoner.....not only you, but your family, friends and business colleagues. You were blessed on earth and more so now in heaven.

A fan.
November 02, 2007
my prayer are with you.
November 02, 2007
I'm at rfricks1@charter.net sorry about the wrong address..... Rest In Peace Mr. Wagoner you were and always be The Wagonmaster.
November 02, 2007
Mr. Porter was such a strong part of my growing up years. I remember listening to 8 tracks with my daddy, hearing him and Dolly Parton singing those wonderful songs and his gospel songs as well. A truly great voice has been stilled, but now the angels have the benefits of hearing him sing in Heaven. Goodbye Mr. Porter, you will truly be missed.
November 02, 2007
WE HAD THE PLEASURE OF MEETING PORTER AT THE OPRY IN 2005.HE WAS A PLEASURE TO MEET AND TO HAVE MET.OUR PRAYERS ARE WITH HIM.
November 02, 2007
Porter had a wonderful sense of love to him. He always carried himself with dignity and class.
He will be missed. May God Bless his family and friends at this time.
November 02, 2007
Thoughts and prayers are with the family during this sad time. I am from Cabool, Mo. and loved to watch Porter perform. I really liked his rhinestone suits and his wonderful way of making people laugh. He was sincere and a great performer. When I was a little girl, maybe 8 or so, my mom,dad,sister and grandma headed to West Plains to see Porter and Johnny Horton perform. It was a sad night, as Johnny Horton was killed on his way there. The show still went on and even as a little girl I knew we had lost a great performer. That is the way I feel about Porter's passing, he belongs with Conway Twitty, Tammy Wynette and others too numerous to mention. May Porter rest in peace until that wonderful day when the dead shall rise. What a gift he gave to his fans, I am sure his family is so proud of him and rightly so.It doesn't seem that long ago when I watched the Ozark Jubilee - that is going back about 50 years though.
November 02, 2007
You can only grow up one time hearing Porter Wagoner on the radio. Sure am glad I was one of those. God Bless the family.
November 02, 2007
Our prayers are with the family. But as we know, he is in a better place. He is in the arms of "DADDY". God bless you all.

From the days at KWTO in Springfield, MO to the big show in Nashville, Porter has always been a top performer. I will miss his style and his gentlemanly manner. I've been a fan since day 1. A true American.
November 02, 2007
The music world has lost a great talent. Condolences to all who shared a love of his music. We can find comfort in God's promise of a resurrection for those in the "memorial tombs." This thought gives us hope.
November 02, 2007

On TV, on the road, at the Opry - I've seen him perform many times and always felt like he was doing it all just for me. That's an entertainer. From the early 60s on, Porter was an icon in the business. He knew what he wanted and how to achieve it, but never lost his love for the people he entertained so well. I, and many others, will miss you old friend, but we will never forget you. Some day I hope you will be at the Pearly Gates, singing that there is "Company Comin'". God bless you.
November 01, 2007
God Bless you all.
I was a fan of Porters from my early teen years and still am. Take comfort in the fact that he is in heaven, and quite aware of the void he has left here. God holds us all in His hands.
Re. Roy Holland
November 01, 2007
Mr. Porter sir, When i was a kid, i heard you sing a song of when, this time on earth for you will end, and you sang a verse that said, you would have to give your last two tens,to pay the ladys to weep.Porter sir,its not true my friend, for now you are Gods to keep.I loved your music sir congradulations, for making the opry strive,for your one of the few i have known sir, to make it out of this world alive..one of your biggest fans..
November 01, 2007
Be Still

Be still like the grass on a melancholy summer day
Be still like desert shrub.

Be calm and you will hear your loved one speak, in the stillness, in the calm, their love resounds.

If you are still this promise I make, you will hear the voice of your loved one helping you along your way.

November 01, 2007
You will be greatly missed. Heaven has another great talent to sing in God's heavenly choir.

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

November 01, 2007
My whole family enjoyed Porter's music. Dad asked him one time if our families might be related, and Porter told him perhaps somewhere back there, as they each came to Missouri from Tenn in the early 1850's or 1860's. Dad has been gone several years now, perhaps they are enjoying 'reminiscing'.

Dear family and friends,
My sincere condolences to each of you. It seems so unfair that death should have the power to take away someone we love. And when it happens, the thought of not being able to talk to, laugh with, or hold that loved one can be almost to difficult to bear. How loving of our Heavenly Father to provide comfort in the scriptures. The Bible's resurrection accounts help us to understand that the persons who were resurrected were reunited with their loved ones--John chapter 11. Other comforting thoughts are found at Luke 7:11-15 and Luke 8:49-56. The Bible also provides evidence that God's purpose is to restore the whole earth to it's original paradise state--Psalms 37:10,11,29. So our loved ones will be brought back to a world free of war, crime, sickness and haate. No more pain and suffering. Isn't this a beautiful thing to look forward to?

I watched Porter for years, starting when he opened his first TV show in the fifties.I was saddened to hear of his passing, but comforted when I heard of him praying for his friends! Porter is with Jesus now and probably singing his heart out!!!

To Porters daughters and Son,
May God Take you through one day at at time and watch over each of you.
Your father was truly a wonderful man and a household name in our family when I was growing up, we were not allowed to talk when his tv
show was on and my father dearly loved every song he sang. My mother passed away in l992 and it was just
heart breaking but the Lord takes you through it, and you have to lean on him every day. My father is 85 and in fact in the hospital right now. He is slowing down more every day and we see him getting more tired, but he is still a trooper and lives in a wonderful retirement home and is very happy.
We have not told him that your daddy passed away, we will tell him later, he thought so much of your dad. He has all of his records and tapes and plays them alot. He watches the Grand Ole Opry, just as
all of us in our family.
In l989 we took our kids to Nasheville for a weeks vacation and
our tour guide on our little bus,
stopped in front of your fathers house and said with her Nasheville
accent" This is Porter Wagners house
it is not on our tour, he likes his privacy" About that time your father
came out of the house and we were all waving to him and yelling Hello
Porter. We were so excited, but poor
Eunice hit the gas and took off fast.She said "Oh Boy, I am in real
trouble YALL> " My kids still talk
about that incident and laugh. ha
We went to the Grand Ole Opry two
days later and he was there. They just loved it , especially when he
opend his jacket with HI and then
when he moved his hands for you to clap. Many years later we returned to Nasheville and we went to the Grand Ole Opry again, but your dad
was not there that night. My daughter, a teenager then, was upset
that he was not there. She said
Hey Where is Porter ? So after this
group finished playing, she stood up facing everyone, and we were on the third row up front and she waved her hands like your father used to do. Everyone clapped and laughed. She announced THIS IS FOR
PORTER HE WOULD WANT ME TO DO THIS>
When I called her to tell her that he passed away, we both had a good cry, and talked about both of our
Nasheville trips and laughed.
I have lots of my dads records of your father and I cherish them.
I know all of the Country Music
Singers are praying for you just like all the millions of his fans
are. He was quite unique, your father. His memories will stay alive
in your hearts forever.My mother had
cancer so I know the agony of what
cancer can do to someone. But they
are in a far better place with no pain or suffering, just heavenly peace. Rest in Peace Porter Wagner.
ON THE WINGS OF A PURE SWEET DOVE
GOD SENDS HIS PURE SWEET LOVE.

I wish there was someway to get a copy of the memorial service to have for my father to show him later after he gets better.

PORTER REST IN PEACE. AND MAY FLIGHTS OF ANGELS SING THEE TO THY REST.
October 31, 2007
Porter Wagoner was truly one of a kind. Out of all of the favorites at the Grand Ole Opry, he was the one whom everyone wanted to see at the Opry. He was awfully funny with his stage presence, sometimes telling jokes about himself. The joy he had for his profession shined like a beacon of rare light, coming as it did from his deep faith. That faith in God was bourne out by the way he died, straight without flinching. He really typified the essential country music performer and he will be sorely missed by not only the people who knew him from his records and television appearances but also by those blessed to see him on stage.
October 31, 2007
My husband was a huge Porter and country western fan. His dream was to go to the grande ole opry. Sadly, he has passed away and never saw his dream fulfilled. Now, Porter can give him a his own country show in heaven!!
My sincerest sympathy to Porter's family and friends.
October 31, 2007
My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.May God bless and comfort all of you Porter will be missed he was great.
October 31, 2007

As a teenager, I had the biggest crush on Porter Wagoner,played his records over & over. I finally met him in the seventies(as an old married woman with 3 children)and he was so kind,gracious,and entertaining. What a gentleman!I saw him perform again in 2001, and he was great as always. My husband was envious of his "Lawn mowing crew"...... My condolences to his friends and family.God Bless, Madonna Reagan-Thomas

Rest assured he is now singing in "Hillbilly Heaven" with Tex Ritter and all of the others. One of my favorites by him was "Green Green Grass of Home" which I wore out when I was in Vietnam.

To the Porter Wagoner Family at the Grand Ole Opry,

May the Lord thy God welcome our brother Porter in Heaven and Bestow in Him the lead act in the Grand Ole Opry of Heaven along with Box Car Willie, Minnie Pearl, and Buck Owens, and especially two members of the Highwayman Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings and the King Elvis Presley. May He Rest in Peace. Don't cry Dolly Parton he's in a better place now with a Choir Of Angels by His Side. If it wasn't for my sister in law from Little Rock, I would never had known what Country Music is.

I grew up listening to Porter Wagoner and loved his voice, style and humor. I loved watching The Porter Wagoner Show that ran from the 1960’s through the 1970’s. We always had his albums playing in my home during my childhood. He was one of my favorite singers and Porter Wagoner and Dolly Parton was my favorite duet of all time. Porter introduced Dolly Parton to the world in the ‘60’s and the rest is history. Porter was one of the few artists that are on the “must have of albums” of mine. I have collected many of his albums through the years and still continue today. Porter was one of the main recording artists at the old RCA Victor Studio B in Nashville in the heydays of his career from the ‘50’s to the mid to late ‘70s. It is a very sad day in music history today. Thanks to the recordings we still have his music and video of his past shows. Goodbye, Porter. Save a place up there for me in heaven. I will always miss you and continue to listen to your music as always. It is the worlds loss but heavens gain.
October 29, 2007
we will miss you, vmp
October 29, 2007
I grew up with you. Playing the old record albums My parents would go out. And me and my brothers would play your records so loud and sing Thank you for those memories Prayers and thoughts to the family

October 29, 2007

Porter, you will be missed.

Heaven is filling up with all the great old Grand Old Opry Stars. My first visit to the Grand Old Opry 12 years ago, we got to see you perform and you were great and of course in your sparkle attire. You have gone from the Green, Green Grass to the Streets of Gold.

God Bless!!
October 29, 2007
I saw Porter many times at the Opry. We will miss him greatly. I like to think of all the Opry folks who went on ahead and met him with open arms and singing as he arrived in heaven. Thank you Porter for making our lives better.
October 29, 2007
Porter, the whole world will miss you and your real country music, i know that you and hank williams and Conway are singing away up there.
October 29, 2007
My first time going to a country show was with my parents and my husband in Waterloo, Iowa and Porter Wagoner and Dolly Pardon were performing. I was completely taken with the talent and changed me to country music forever and a Porter Wagoner fan. I have enjoyed many years of listening to him and I am very saddned with his death. I know God is rejoycing to have him back again and he is in heaven singing and no longer in pain. God be with his family as I know they will miss him.
October 29, 2007
We extend our deepest sympathies and prayers to the Wagoner family at this time. Porter Wagoner was a wonderful example of success and an encouragement to everyone.
October 29, 2007
How you'll be missed, Mr. Wagoner, but what a legacy you've left behind here on this earth. I'm sure Miss Minnie was there to greet you, with a big, "Howdy!", when you entered heaven's gate. Rest in peace, sir.

Rest in Peace Mr Wagner .. See you when I get there ...
October 29, 2007
Well, what can I say? Porter Wagoner was/is one of the greats. A true legend and a true gentleman. I had the great honor of meeting him at his show here in Los Angeles this past summer. A dream come true for this Porter fan and he was the kindest and coolest, ever! My record collection has been spinning on the ol' turntable all day. R.I.P. most handsome of all Hillbillies!
October 29, 2007
You have my deepest sympathy on the loss of a wonderful singer & a wonderful man. I am sure he is singing before God now & enjoying it so much. He was loved my millions of people.

"HE ONLY TAKE THE BEST"
God saw that Porter was getting tried, and a cure was not be; so he put is arms around Porter and whispered, "Come home with me," with tearful eyes we watched Porter suffer and fade away. Although we loved Porter deeply. We could not make Porter stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest, God broke ours hearts to prove to us;

be missed, but never forgotten!

I will sor miss Porter Wangoner he was a very good singer.
October 29, 2007
I am so sorry to hear of Mr. Porter Wagoner's passing. Even though I didn't know him personally, I feel like I did. I wonder if he knew how many people's lives he had touched. If he did not know this in life, I hope he is knowing now, in Heaven, with my loving family members who loved him, too, and have also passed on. I hope they are having a wonderful time together. I am so grateful to have been raised up on country music. It will be forever in my heart, thanks to people like Mr. Porter Wagoner. I will never forget him. May God be with his family and many friends during this painful time. Thank you for sharing your life with us, and for all the happiness you gave us all. To his family, God Bless you, and God Bless Porter Wagoner.
October 29, 2007
we will miss you porter. I know mums in heaven with you, tapping her foot, to your songs.
October 29, 2007
Some of the best ambassadors for an art form are those whose names are known to those who have no interest in that art form. People who didn't listen to country music knew who Porter Wagoner was. They knew his rhinestone suits with the greeting stitched inside the jackets, his explosive laugh, his taller-than-tall personality. He was present in so many areas of music. Porter will be sincerely missed.
October 29, 2007
Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.
October 29, 2007
Porter you will be missed. Thank You for the many years of wonderful music. I am thankful that my wife and I were finally able to see you perform at the Opry in September of this year. We will remember that moment, always, as our parents never had the opportunity. God Bless your surviving family members.
October 29, 2007
I remember listening to Porter while I was growing up and have always loved his voice. The world of country music has lost a truly great man. Thanks for all the wonderfull memories and music. God Bless and watch over your friends and family.
October 29, 2007
Porter Wagoner will always be remembered as one Country Music's greatest legends. I always enjoyed his duets with Dolly Parton, and I thank the good Lord that he was able to give Dolly her start in the field of country music. God Bless You, Porter, for all of your wonderful contributions to country music over the years.
October 29, 2007
Porter has brought many years of enjoyment to our family his music will forever live in our hearts. May his family find peace and comfort in their time of sorrow.Our prayers and heart felt sympathy goes out to them.
October 29, 2007
You will be missed greatly. The Wagoner Family have my deepest sympathy.
October 29, 2007
Back in 1978, Porter was doing his show from Opryland, and my family went to see his show. I got lost from my mom and wound up walking right on the set of a live show! Mr. Wagoner was so nice to me and handled my "intrusion" like a pro! He has always been a favorite of mine and always will be! Porter, when you run into my mom in heaven, ya'll can have a good laugh!
October 29, 2007
I am saddened to hear this news. I remember his show and we always watched it even though I was a child I always watched and enjoyed it. Many people owe their careers to the start he gave them he will be greatly missed.
October 29, 2007
TO THE WAGONER FAMILY/FRIENDS: GOOD BYE OLD FRIEND. I ENJOYED WATCHING YOUR SHOW FOR YEARS. NOW YOU, MINNIE PEARL, SPEC RHODES & ALL THE OLD GANG CAN RELIVE ALL THE GOOD OLD TIMES SO MANY OF US ENJOYED THROUGH THE YEARS. GOD BLESS Y0U & KEEP YOU ALWAYS.
October 29, 2007
Porter will be greatly missed, his music is great and will live on forever, our sympathy to his family.
We have seen him at many shows.
October 29, 2007

October 29, 2007
Thank you Porter, You have added to my life with your music. May you be with God for now and every more.
October 29, 2007
You were country all the way. Thanks for staying true to your roots. America has lost a treasure.
October 29, 2007
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

October 29, 2007
I remember when I was about 5 years old (1967) my family went to Nashville and we went to the Grand Old Opera and all I remember is seeing Porter Wagoner and his shiny suit - it was beautiful! I was sad to hear he had passed.
October 29, 2007
I'm so sorry to hear of Mr. Wagoner's death. I hope his family and friends are comforted in knowing how many people he touched. For me, it means the loss of another connection to my father. When I was a little girl, my mom would be listening to classical music on the bedroom radio while Daddy watched the Porter Wagoner show on the TV. He never missed that show! Even in black & white, Poter Wagoner always looked spectacular in his costumes. He had such a lovely voice, when he sang the old gospel songs of my parents' childhood, Mother would come out and listen too -- thanks Mr. Wagoner for giving me warm childhood memories to think of when I'm missing my parents. May you rest in peace!
October 29, 2007
God lifted the soul of a showman, today. Ease your heart because this day you will hear all the angels of county music singing in grand harmony. And be at ease because I am sure God said, "Porter is happy. He is happy." Ease your heart. He's with God. Don't cry that you may not see him, but know that Porter's influence lives on...in all of us who loved him. So put a smile on your face and celebrate, today there's new music; come to town in heaven.
October 29, 2007
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
October 29, 2007
Our hearts go out to you and your family at this time. Porter brought a lot of sunshine into people's lives over the years and he will be missed by all of us.

I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU, PORTER, and I am glad I told you that, because often we wait to say things until it is too late. It gave my heart a lift just to see you and know that you would never be matched in flash or bling-bling by any newcomers with big ideas! YOU had DONE IT ALL, #1 !! I thank GOD for letting you make your music just recently and that he let you give us your new album .. Remarkable! Thank you for adding to my life!

A true county music icon is gone. I lived in Nashville for 11 years and had the pleasure to meet Porter on a couple of occasions. Always gracious, kind and humble. He set a standard no one even tries to attain anymore. He will be missed.
October 29, 2007
The last drop of wax
Fell from the candle
On to the floor
The light doesn’t shine
There any more

The sent of apple pie
Baking in July
Blew a way in the wind
How I miss my dear friend

Some thing stole that birds song
Robbed him of his joy
Has him caged, so he doesn’t sing
Nor does he fly

And then a voice said
But not for long

Do not marvel over him dear friend
The show is not over until I say when
While he sleeps
Think of the memories you had with him
Until you meet again

May comfort be with the family and friends of this great legend.
Know that God promises by means of His dear song Jesus Christ
Hope for our lost ones. “I am the resurrection and the life.
He that exercises faith in me, even though he dies
Will come to life.” John 11:25

Sincerely,
Wanisha
