Lighten the Load

It's with a heavy heart, that we announce the love of John's life and long-term partner, Ken (Porter), passed away September 2, 2017 due to complications from a massive heart attack.

Ken and John were together for 29 years. Those who knew Ken, knew he loved his John, his Basset hounds, family, and friends, with all his heart. Money was raised to help John be able to miss work and be at Ken's side when the end came. Thanks to those who took immediate action; it helped immeasurably.

Now there is one last thing: Cremation, funeral mass, and incidental expenses means even a simple funeral will cost around $4000 or more.

A donation of any amount is appreciated.

Life occasionally offers opportunities for a small action to have a big impact. This is one of them. Please support John in his time of need.


Kenneth Leo Porter
April 5, 1942 -- September 2, 2017
