Anne Porcher was the best aunt and godmother anybody could ever ask for! From the day I was born, 7 weeks before Anne, she was there for me, loving me, giving to me, teaching me, correcting me, and spanking me when she deemed necessary! Reading her obituary reminded me of her teaching Anne and me how to twirl a baton, coaching us on how to audition for Little Theater and Converse plays and to successfully win drama class scholarships at Converse. She even got us roles in a film made for ETV! She was a real cheerleader for my competitive tennis days and even made me a tennis dress which I did not have. Anne Porcher and Pat enthusiastically supported my work with Campus Crusade for Christ and then my real estate years. When I bought my first house, Anne Porcher was there to help Momma and me shop for furniture in High Point and AP even made window treatments for me! She was a great seamstress! Then when I got engaged, she and Pat gave me a beautiful engagement party in Winston-Salem! And then came the wonderful trips Shoosh and Pat included me on with their daughters to China and India! Another sweet and much appreciated memory is that of AP and her daughters helping me host a bridesmaids' luncheon for my niece! Times at the beach with Shoosh were always fun and treasured from early years at Pawley's and then years later when all the Perrins, spouses, and their children all came every summer to Isle of Palms. I loved that I could see them all for those weeks too! This last year certainly limited my face to face time with Shoosh, but I am so thankful that Anne arranged for me to see her on Saturday December 26th. We had a happy, wonderful visit, and then I got Anne's text on Tuesday that she had had a massive stroke. I'm so glad she did not suffer long and I thank God for the wonderful aunt and godmother He gave me. She was such a blessing and example to me in so many ways and I will miss her so much.
