My condolences goes out to the family of the late Mary Ruth Porter Pinetops, NC.
I have been knowing Ms. Porter for many, many years when she used to live in Dodge City Pinetops NC up until the flood and then she relocated. I used to cultivate her and her husband’s garden back in the day when I was in school. I remember going to her house the day that Governor Jim Hunt came down to Dodge City when we were able to get back on Bynum Farm Road and in to Dodge City. A couple of families were in the attic of her house when they were rescued. And then we both became members of the same church Anderson Chapel.
