Jim and Linda and Lisa, Bruce and I send our sincere condolences. I remember Portia as a beautiful girl, with a big smile and beautiful white teeth. I also remember that she loved horses, and the one and only time I've ever been on a horse, Portia talked me into getting on one, and she walked it down the street, faster than I cared to go. May she rest in peace.

I remember many happy "playdates" with Portia when we were growing up. She loved to laugh and have fun, so I will always remember her with a smile on her face.
