Not sure what to say?


Your dad and mom meant so much to my special needs daughter and I. I called their home number several times a few years back and wondered where Mr. Porter was. I did not see until late last night about his passing. Your dad framed pictures for my mom and I for years and my mom worked with him at GE.
Your mom every time we came over had candy for my daughter and my daughter would sit at the kitchen table with her. Your parents were so special and we loved them both very...

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.


Ted & I are so sorry to hear about the loss of your father. Want you to know your in our thoughts & prayers. Love YOU!!!!

I am so sorry to hear about Mr. Porter. He did a lot of framing work for me. It was always so nice and I will treasure my pieces and think of him. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Pops was a humble man, full of God's grace and laughter. He was a good role model for me. It was a thing of beauty watching him love two women in his lifetime, his wife Ann, and his daughter Debbie. They were his life's devotion. Also, the joy he had in those radiant blue eyes, as he witnessed Bryan mature into a young man, was a gift from Christ Himself. We are going to miss him, but the best parts of Arden live us.

Billy and I are so sorry for your loss. Please know we are here for you.

Almighty God, Father of mercies and giver of comfort: Deal
graciously, we pray, with all who mourn; that, casting all
their care on you, they may know the consolation of your
love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
