My beautiful sister Kristin George Porter passed away peacefully this afternoon at about 3 p.m. Her husband Brian and children Elise and Gardner were with her at her passing. Just prior to her passing at 11:30 a.m., Pastor John performed a last rites ceremony. All of her family and closest friends were in attendance. We all had the opportunity to say goodbye to her. We believe she heard us.
As Catholics and Christians, we believe in everlasting life. We believe that when we die, our souls are reunited with God and Jesus in heaven. My family believes that Kristin has been an angel to us on earth and her new mission will be to do God's work in heaven. We believe she will be our Guardian Angel. We believe she will be reunited with all of our relatives who have passed including her beautiful still-born daughter Lauren. Of course, our greatest challenge is letting her go and coping through our huge loss. Although we'll never understand why this has happened to such a beautiful human being, we understand that it was never in our hands.
We will keep you appraised of wake and funeral plans through this blog. Thank you for all of your prayers. There is a beautiful new soul in heaven.
