Mr. and Mrs Porter Inam So Sorry to hear your sad news I remember Stephen all the Porters growing up on Monktown Road ,,
The kids were all in school with my sisters and brothers.
My dearest condolences to the whole family.

Dearest Mr. & Mrs Porter and all the family and the Keasrsey family,
It is with a saddend heart that we extend our deepest sympathies for your great loss. Steve was such a sweet, loving man and, as other have noted, even though it has been a while, we always remember those great times, back in the day, St. Bon’s, Brother Rice, etc. The Porter family and the Kearseys’ were such a great part of life back then, including dearest Steve with him warm ways. May the Dear Lord hold you all close in His arms as your difficult healing process now begins,
With heartfelt sincere sympathy and prayers,

There is never much that can be said at a time like this for Steve’s loved ones and family. Anyone who knew Steve would know that he was a great person, extremely friendly, and a pleasure to be around. He had a great presence and I am sure he will be dearly missed.

Please accept our sincerest condolences and we are very sorry for your loss.

Dear Pat, Ed and family. It’s been years since we’ve been in touch and I never expected it to be at a time like this. Please accept our sincere sympathy. We lost Jamie 11 years ago in December so I have a pretty good idea of what you are going through. In my experience, you will get through it but never get over it. God bless you all. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Floyd and Pat Kelly.
