I remember Porter the best by him being like a grandfather to me. He used to teach me stuff about farming and raising crops.I miss hearing him tell stories about when he was young.I used to go up to his house everyday after school and wait for him on the porch to tell about his past.And when I moved from my old house I wanted to come back and see him and stay with him. But he is in a better place now. He was my best friend. Love PJ
I hope you know that Porter was a ‘special’ patient of mine. He loved to talk about living on the farm, his tractor and your poodle! I miss getting to leave him little notes on his chair for him to find when he came to dialysis.
You were BOTH special to us @ WDC!!!!!!!! Freda
