My Papaw 1930-2012

On Thursday my Papaw Porter went home to be with the Lord. He was 81 years "young" and left this world without a day of suffering or sorrow. As heart-broken as we are to lose him so unexpectedly, we are comforted in knowing he went pain-free and never lost his quality of life. You are never ready to say goodbye but it is so much easier when you know their name is written in the lamb's book of life and we will see them again one day when we are all called home. I feel blessed I was able to spend 25 years of my life with him here on earth....and eternity with him in Heaven. I love you papaw!

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Phillipians 4:6-7


  1. Kaitlin I know it still has to be hard losing a loved one but you are right. One day you will meet him again, and what a glorious day that will be!
