I’m so sorry for your loss. I have such wonderful memories of Mr Poteet coming to get me after work and taking me home with him so I could see Paige all weekend. He would get up early to get me back home Monday morning and he would head on to work. He always tried to make me laugh on that long ride to his house. My childhood has the best memories that all include the Poteet family. I know he will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with each of you.
