These past five years have seemed like they have gone by so quickly yet sometimes it feels like they go by so slow and you were just here with us. Thank you for sending me your special signs throughout they year... I know you are watching us from a better place and hope you are seeing the good things that are happening in our lives. As Andrew said, your "Terry-isms" will live on in the lives of many... thank you for bringing such joy, love and laughter to our lives. Miss you every day... Love you always!

Hi Dad, It seems like just yesterday we said goodbye. I think about you everyday and all the memories and laughs. I always bring up grandpa Terry-isms to Will and Jack. The legend of " the Cobra , speed and quickness, and I got that going for me" live on. My birthdays are tough as I think about you, wish you were here, and wonder why. I was able to go see you at the cemetery first thing yesterday. Love and miss you dearly!! Andrew

I can’t believe it’s been 5 years. Cash, Miles and Penelope ask about you often. We are on vacation watching the sun set and remembering all of the special times with you. We miss you and love the memories we have. Your Son Matt

Posted by Jean Porter on 30th June 2018
And, again another day to especially remember you (you are remembered every day!). ... Five years ago we lost you. I have read the notes I left over the years. I see I said last year you have 5 grandkids??? Where did I get that. I guess just brain dead...as I get when I think of you being gone.... No, you have 3 wonderful grandkids.....a granddaughter you didn't have the opportunity to see....She is as special as your Grand Sons....As usual we will go to the cemetery ... our lone try of the day to get close to you. We miss you terribly....more as the years go by. Love, Mom & Dad

Love you my dear man! Thank you for all the great memories and the 18 years we had together. I wouldn't have traded it for the world.
Posted by Jean Porter on 30th June 2017
Four years ago today was the last time to see you. We miss you terribly. Again we say, you would be so proud of your boys, their wives, and your 5 grandkids. Time has not dimmed our memory of you....You are still special.....Love you, Mom & Dad

Happy 64th Birthday honey! Love you sweet man and miss you every day. Glad we had the time together we did. You will always hold a special place in my heart. As you said, "you buy your ticket, you take your chances." Glad I bought mine - we had a good ride!
Posted by Jean Porter on 2nd March 2017
I woke early today....as I did 64 years ago. Couldn't go back to sleep, as I couldn't 64 years ago. What a wonderful "present" we got. I guess I was hoping for the same thing this morning. Miss you...wish we could see you...hold you.... Love you a lot....Happy Birthday!!!! Mom & Dad

Birthday greetings Terry..you are much loved and missed by all!

Happy Birthday dad! Love you, Andrew
Posted by Shannon Porter on 1st July 2016
Terry you would love seeing how great Matt and Andrew are doing (and Olivia and Tiffany) and how cute and fun Cash, Will, Jack, Miles and Penelope are. I'm so thankful they still get to be a part of my life - only wish I could see them more and my biggest regret for you is that you don't get to be "Grandpa Terry" as I know you would have had a blast in that role. I know you are watching over all of us however. All your friends miss you dearly as well - but your "Terryisms" continue to be with us every day! Love you my sweet man. Shannon

Love and Blessings to all the Porter family

This is the last day in 2013 we could talk to you, hold your hand, and kiss your cheek. We are so glad you left us Shannon. She is a treasure. You would be so proud of your boys and their boys, and that beautiful sweet Panelope...2 years old. We miss you. And, I am sure you sent our sweet Cooper (our dog) to us. He is as sweet, and lovable s you were/are! And, he has your same Birthday, March 2nd. Hard to believe the coincidence!. Love you, Mom & Dad

I think God placed you and Shannon in my life Terry. It was only for a short season, but the memories I will cherish for a lifetime. I know you are eternal. I miss you. I think of you every time I see deer and only the 'Cinnamon Girl' understands that reference. ( : Lisa
Posted by Andrew Porter on 30th June 2016
Dad, I can't believe it's been 3 years. I love and miss you. Jack has your "what" saying down with the hands out. It reminds me of you every time he does it. Love you
Posted by Shannon Porter on 2nd March 2016
Happy Birthday to my dear Terry. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you. At this point in our lives I thought we'd be traveling and you'd be gearing up for retirement in a couple of years. But, I do cherish all the fun times we had - just wish there were more. I love you!
Posted by Jean Porter on 2nd March 2016
Happy Birthday, my dear Son. As we say, we miss you terribly. It should get easier without you as time passes....but, doesn't happen. Many times things happen I want to tell Terry.... Well, Dad and I visit your final resting place frequently. Sometimes I think you have the prettiest flowers there. The pictures and comments here in this Memorial are wonderful remembrances. Well, wait for us, Sweetheart, I guess we will see you soon......Love you, Mom

Two years... sometimes it seems like yesterday, sometimes it seems like forever. Miss you so much, all the "Terryisms", things you knew that no one else does, your laugh... Wish you could be here to see how great the boys are doing and how beautiful and fun your grandkids are. But, hopefully you know... Love you!

Friends are part of your family you get to choose, a good friend is hard to find, hard to lose and impossible to forget. Miss you!
Posted by Jean Porter on 30th June 2015
Hello, my Terry....have missed you every day and still wait for that phone call from you to let me know all is OK.... Two years have passed today since you left us. It was God's will to take you, but we wish you were here happy and healthy. Since we could not have you healthy, we had to let you go. I will see you before too long..... Love you, Mom
Posted by Karen Laster on 2nd March 2015
Happy Birthday Terry................May the road go on forever and the party never end! We miss you and think of you often. Cheers my good friend!

Your second birthday without you. It should be getting easier, but I find it getting harder. I remember this day...your Birthday...What a special time...What a happy time. Miss you and love you so much...Mom

Happy 62nd birthday dad... I miss you. Love, Andrew
Posted by Marcus Godsy on 30th June 2014
Well, its been a year now, my friend. I have thought about you frequently over the last 12 months. "Gone to Soon" is certainly appropriate, I must say. But, you can be proud of the fact that Shannon has been your most ardent supporter. She has carried your torch proudly and been magnificent in her efforts to keep your memory alive. I know your boys proudly carry your legacy and your family their precious memories. You live on, my friend....YOU live on in the hearts of so many. We shall meet again.

My first Mother's Day without you, my Son....It has been a difficult year not having a phone call from you. Miss you, your smile, your caring, your kindness. Shannon has been a precious gift from you. Thank You. Until we meet again, Love you.....Mom
Posted by Karen Laster on 2nd March 2014
Happy Birthday Terry........Think about you often as so many times remind us of our good times together. We are keeping Shannon close in our thoughts as well and so happy we get to see her and talk about you every chance we get! We raise a glass or two for you today! We miss you!
Posted by Andrew Porter on 2nd March 2014
Dad, Happy 61st Birthday! I think about you everyday and l miss you! I love you. Andrew

Terry touched my life in personal and professional ways and I am grateful to have known him.
Posted by Marcus Godsy on 23rd July 2013
We met on my first day of work at Continental Federal Savings & Loan in May, 1978, followed by stints at The Liberty Bank and beyond. But more than a working relationship, ours was a very special friendship that spanned 35 years. Our lives always seemed to mirror one another, creating a very special bond. Always and forever my friend. We shall meet again on the other side.
Posted by Lauren Heflin on 23rd July 2013
Thanks Terry for your great smile and wonderful attitude. Remembering you and the fun times with Stew's Crew. You will be missed and my prayers go out to your family and friends.
Posted by Bridget Young on 22nd July 2013
One of my fondest memories of Terry is every time Mustang Sally was sung/played. I will always remember Terry's dance moves to song and will forever perform them myself - who needs gangnam style - go old school with Ride Sally Ride! So to my friend Terry, I hope you are dancing in heaven and say "Ride Terry Ride", and thank you for loving my dear friend Shannon.
Posted by Linda Pate on 22nd July 2013
28 years is a long time to be friends with someone. Our friendship began August 5th 1985, when we started on the same day at Liberty Bank. You are the best boss I've ever had and truly one of my dearest friends. I will never forget your smile, humor and our laugh-out-loud good times. P.S. Thanks for the stripper on my 30th Birthday!!!
Posted by Michelle Waddell on 17th July 2013
I knew Terry before I met Ted. When we first started dating, I'm pretty sure Terry warned Ted that I was crazy. (Ted really should've listened to him) : ) Terry always made me laugh & Ted's stories about their adventures never fail to crack me up. He will be missed, but never forgotten. God bless.
Posted by Carmen Marsh on 17th July 2013
Mabry and I have been talking about when y'all came and visited and brought her a stuffed monkey. And how Terry kept saying "moankay"! Then she asked about when y'all got married and I told her that she was there. I wished you could have seen her big smile! I've been looking for the picture to post of that but I can't find it. We loved Terry's sense of humor and we really miss him.
Posted by Don Poole on 16th July 2013
Well Terry, so long and God Bless you. I know that I missed out on knowing you as well as I would have liked. We did get to share some fun in Denver, and in OKC though, and I will always remember the great times and stories shared by our mutual friends. I just missed out on too much.
Posted by Gary Churcull on 12th July 2013
Seems like you always remember your first best friend. Terry and I were best buds growing up in Downey Ca . In the baby boomer 50's that meant there was always plenty of kids to play with, if you got in fight with one you could always move on to next kid down the block. But Terry and I always had special bond. When he moved it was like losing a brother. Godspeed Terry!
Posted by Karen Laster on 10th July 2013
Terry's infectious smile had you from "hello"! There are things we don't want to happen but have to accept, things we don't want to know but have to learn, and people we can't live without but have to let go. Friends are part of your family you get to choose, a good friend is hard to find, hard to lose and impossible to forget. Terry-The road goes on forever and the party never ends! Love
Posted by Erica Kaehly on 9th July 2013
Terry, in the short time we knew you your sense of humor and easy going nature were always welcome! What a gift to have known you through Craig and Ashley. Shannon, I want to thank you for being such an amazing woman-over the past seven years you have shown what commitment and unconditional love truly means-I admire you. Much love and our deepest sympathies, The Kaehlys
