My most sincere sympathy to the Porter family. I just now heard about Lew's passing through the SWPC web site. Lew was a kind person and huge asset to the general aviation community. I'm so sorry...

Dearest Lily,
My deepest condolences to you and your family for your loss. I have wonderful memories of you and Lew at the SWPC Conventions. We both have lost our best friends and great pilots. My thoughts and prayers are with you to find the strength to travel through this grieving process. I take comfort that both Bev and Lew's spirits will always be around us.

Our deepest sympathy. Perhaps a few lines form the Navy Hymn will express our felling's better than words:
AVIATORS VERSION


Eternal Father, lend Thy grace To
those with wings who fly thro' space,
Thro wind and storm, thro' sun and rain,
Oh bring them safely home again.

Oh Father, hear an humble prayer,
For those in peril in the air!

Amen.

My thoughts and prayers are with you, Mrs. Porter, your whole family, and of course Suzie. My childhood memories will always include fond ones of your household, where Mr. Porter's kind and sweet demeanor added to the warm and welcoming feeling there.
