To all my Porter cousins, I'm so sorry for the loss of your Dad, I loved him. I also loved spending a week on the farm each summer with you guys, I remember when your Dad used to let me ride on the big farm tractor with him, and he had a small radio or tape player on there booming with the song "Thank God I'm a Country Boy" by John Denver. I learned the words to that song singing it with him and always think of him when I hear it! I also remember your Dad reading me a bedtime story because I was scared and didn't want to watch "The Bride of Frankenstine" with Kenny, Marty, Peggy and Mimi!! LOL So he read me stories and changed a lot of the words into silly songs, and had me laughing so much I forgot about the hand I saw crawling across the B&W tv show! I'll also never forget when Uncle Goodgie brought us baby bunnies for Easter one year, we were so excited, they were the gift that kept on giving! It was also an adventure every time I answered phone calls from your Dad, he would always disguise his voice, and depending on the time of year he would either be Santa, the Easter Bunny, the tooth fairy...or any other name he chose. He was a good man who was always smiling, and made us all smile. God Bless.
