I am so sorry to see that Ms. Porter has passed away in death. Please accept my family's condolences. May your hearts find peace and comfort from the Bible's promise at John chapter 5 verses 28 and 29 and Psalms chapter 37 verse 29 which says that soon God is going to resurrect our dead loved ones back to life on earth so that we can be reunited with them.
