My condolences to Nella and all the generous of their family. It was obvious how much he was loved by all of them. What a light he was - with a smile and mischievous sense of humor. An example of a life lived well. Love and blessings....

To the Porter Family~
I had the pleasure of taking care of your husband/dad when he would come into Mills Jewelers. Such a lovely man, and so genuine. He was always one for teasing us and we shared many a laugh with him. My deepest sympathies on your loss.
