Bill Porter was a great teacher and a truly important force in my life. I will remember him always--and all the life lessons I learned as a student in his fourth grade class at El Rodeo, 1962-63. Kelly: When I talked to Bill last summer, he told me about your legendary baking talents (which I have since had confirmed by several friends from Santa Cruz), and he was as proud of you in talking about your achievements in the summer of 2016 as he was when he used to tell his classroom about what you were up to when you were a five year-old. My condolences to the family. Dan Burstein
