    Jimmy, Bud and the entire Porter family,

    I am very sorry I could not attrend the wake, due to a commitment with my 95 year old mother.
    Please accept my sincerest condolences on the passing of your father. From all indications, he
    was a special man. The world is not a better place when someone like him passes. You all must
    be very proud to have had him for a father.
    Please know that both Judy and I will keep all of you in our thoughs and prayers.

    Warm Regards,
    Lynn Carmody
