Dear Porter family so sorry to have to write this I know how much you are hurting right now, but I believe in life after death here on earth and I believe Corann was waiting at the tunnel to guide Cliff through. They are now to gather in a place where no one is ever sick or sad. The days are always sunny and bright with bright skies and big fluffy white clouds. they will be there at the tunnel when your time on earth is over and all of you will be to gather once again. Take care and don't be sad too long.

Sending my love and condolences to the family. Cliffy was a very special man. I worked at the Brimfield Steakhouse for many many years and he was always a favorite face to see every morning and evening. My very favorite customer. I missed him dearly after I left the restaurant and moved. Always thought of him often. He will be missed dearly to many.
