  1. I am saddened by the loss of the oldest of the three Porter Brothers, my cousins and friends all. Growing up they always reminded me of the TV series “My Three Sons.” I do not know a finer group of guys, and Jimmy’s loss will be much felt, although we know he has gone to a far better place where we hope to follow. My condolences to and prayers for the entire Porter family. May God give you peace and comfort you now and in the days ahead.

  2. Karen, Whitney and all
