Your Spirit Rides on Mountain Peaks

Our most precious Porter 
Your spirit rides on mountain peaks
Their heights forever conquered
Your music carries over stone and brook
Like rushing waters
Gentle caressing breezes forever carry your memory
You are home
This was a gift from Porter's best friends mom, Laurie.  As she was drifting off to sleep one night she heard a voice whispering these words in her ears.  She quickly wrote the words down and then felt a desire to have this plaque made for our family.  We have been so moved by this beautiful poem that we used part of it on Porter's headstone, which by the way is completed, and I will post pictures soon.
