Diana and Family - Diana, I have known you and Porfirio since the late 1980's as I worked for Jim Rindfuss. I heard "God is Good" so many times from Porfirio. Porfirio was the epitome of a hard worker and a dedicated family man. My sincere sympathy to all of you.

To Diana and Gabriel and the rest of the family I offer my deepest sympathy on the passing of Portfolio. He was a good, honest and hard working man who served the Lord in his church, day care center and in his insurance agency. I first met him in the early 1990's when he started ordering calendars from me to advertise his business. I remember in 2002 when I mentioned to him that I had been diagnosed with prostate cancer he got up from his desk and took me into the church and called a group of men to surround me and they all prayed for my successful surgery and that God would heal me. I will never forget his kindness and faith. May he rest in peace.
