    I love you so much Uncle Porgie. You will be truly missed. I still can’t believe you’re gone. I’ve been watching the video I recorded at the hospital and I laugh everytime. Our family was so blessed to have had the chance to say how much we love you while you were here. God wanted you to come home. God didn’t want you to be in anymore pain. See you again Uncle. Rest In Heavenly Peace. &10084;&10084;&10084;&10084;&10084;

    I love you so much Uncle Porgie. You will be truly missed. I still remember the last time I saw you at uncle Dickie funeral ad you were standing outside when I walked up to you and you hugged me so tight (never thought it would be the last time) and said Nita-beat (something you always called me) finally a face I recognize. I laughed so hard just thinking about how much our family has grown. Those of us in the family who were fortunate enough to really know you were so blessed. Now that you are gone all the BIG women of the world will be sad (you know you loved your BIG women) I LOVE YOU UNCLE PORGIE and will forever miss you. Rest in heaven uncle and I will see you again.
