    Dear Sue and brothers,
    I am so sorry about the loss of Porter, he was a really sweet guy and I looked as forward to seeing him as I did our family, on my yearly visit. He will be missed, but I have the peace of knowing that he is in Heaven with my dad, and they are sitting under a tree (which needs no topping), talking, and laughing. I know in my heart that daddy and Glen will take good care of him til we get there. Love you guys,
    Sheree (that Texas girl)
