It is with sadness and joy that I lift up the name of Sarah Porter, my aunt, my confidante, and a voice of encouragement. She was a warrior for those she loved. During the latter years, she filled the void left by the passing of our mother, her sister, Florence. When our father passed (Bill Dykes) I was not sure what to do. I called my Aunt Sarah. She handled everything while I leaned over the kitchen sink in shock and disbelief, of the loss of our father. Bob, her nephew, and my brother, attributes his basketball career to his Aunt Sarah. During her last moments, Bob was frantically calling her, but no one answered. Then he called me, desperately, telling me what he wanted to tell her, and how it was important to him to let her know what she did for him. And, what she meant to him. Specifically, how she has been a big part of the success he has had during his lifetime. Especially, his basketball career. During a time, when our father was rehabilitating after an accident, Aunt Sarah, took care of Bob—he lived with her. Bob rehashed the moments when Aunt Sarah, would lay down the rules of the house to him. Specifically, the time he was to be in the home, and that he must come home first before he did anything else. We are saddened over the loss of our Aunt, who filled in as a mother, to her sisters’ children after she died. I always enjoyed talking with her and rehashing the moments during the times I would visit her when in Seattle. We always laughed about my famous green apple martinis. I wish we could have had one more time to laugh over a green apple martini. With much Love, Joi, Bill, and Bob Dykes.
