Earnest Porter was a loving husband, an adored grandfather, an admired brother and caring uncle who will be truly missed by all those who knew him. You lived your life one day at a time.The words he shared were always kind. Earnest loved us all with his whole heart. It saddens us to be apart, and forever we hold you in our hearts. Today you stand in God’s bright light. Watching over us day and night.
In our hearts you will remain until the day we meet again…Forever your love will live on in our hearts and the hearts of those you have touched. We are so grateful to God for blessing our lives with the beautiful gift of you. We miss you sweet angel, more than you can imagine. A bouquet of beautiful memories sprayed with a million tears wishing God could have spared you if just for a few more years. We love you, we miss you and we are proud to keep your dream and vision alive.
