In Memory of Karen Rachel Jane Porter

porters

We received word that Jonny's sister Karen died suddenly this morning. Karen was the wife of Richard, mother of Rebekah, 12, Erin, 10, and Ethan, 9 months, daughter of Sidney and Caroline Dallas, sister of Jonny, daughter-in-law, sister-in-law, aunt, niece, cousin and friend to many. She was my inspiration to stay at home with my children. She will be missed by everyone whose life she touched especially her family. Please keep us in your thoughts as we travel back to Northern Ireland tomorrow.
