I will miss you forever, my sweet friend. I’ll miss the sassiness, the way your kids made you laugh, how much love you had for them all.
I’ll never forget how you laughed when Jerry and Mike had a contest…and you lost! The memories of you looking out for everyone around you will remain an example the rest of my life; posting job openings, church socials, farmer and flea markets.
You lived a good life, Portia. Thank you for being my friend.
So sorry to hear of Portia passing. I remember from many years ago and the wonderful person she was. May she rest in peace. God Bless
Louie my condolences to you too. You and my brother Keith were always together growing up. With sympathy, Ginger
