As the grandson of Ray Porras, one of the players who died in the 1960 crash, I would like to publicly thank the follwing people on behalf of the Porras family. To the Cal Poly administation and all involved thank you for the beautiful memorial, Hall of Fame induction and hospitality extended to my family this past weekend. You have poetically and deservingly cemented the memory of these wonderful people on campus forever. Thanks to the football team for their dramatic victory this past Saturday. Your guts and determination was the perfect end to a wonderful weekend. Lastly and most importantly, we would like to thank the survivors and familes who attended and shared their memories of Ray with us. You kept Ray’s spirit alive in each of you for 46 years and shared it with all of us. I can’t express how touched and grateful we all are by your gift.

Love and thanks,

The Porras Family
