Virginia (Ginny) Susan Porter, age 75, of Columbus, Ohio went home to be with our Lord on Tuesday, December 20, 2022, at Riverside Methodist Hospital after a brief battle with cancer.

Ginny will be greatly missed until we are reunited in the presence of the Lord. Ginny actively attended St. Christopher Parish and Vineyard Grandview.

Our hearts ache for the loss of your Ginny.

You can shed tears that she is gone
Or you can smile because she has lived

You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back
Or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left

Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her
Or you can be full of the love that you shared

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday

You can remember her and only that she is gone
Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on

You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
Or you can do what she would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on. ~ David Harkins
