I can't remember if I've ever posted this photo of Porter but it cracks me up every time I see it. It was so typical of Porter and his goofy humor to do something like this.
Well, we received a pretty nice gift from Porter's best friend Nathan Buhler. He showed up with some awesome artwork to give to us. He has been going to college down in Southern Utah at Dixie College and this large painting of Porter was his final project. He came by to present it to us which we quickly and gratefully accepted.
I know I've said before how much Porter loved the band Keane. Nathan also knew of Porter's love for this band and so he also did this painting of the lead singer to give to us as well.
Cooper had Porter's bass and amp in his room and brought it back up. We hung Nathan's beautiful art work on the walls. I put a bookcase in the room and filled it up with everything 'Porter' related. Now I love to go in there and sit in the rocking chair and admire so many things that Porter loved. It has such a relaxing feeling in there. I someday want to have a blanket made out of Porter's clothes, yet in talking with all the family about it they aren't sure they want to have his clothes cut into pieces. For now we still find comfort in opening his closet and looking at the items hanging there and remembering how he looked dressed in them.
