To the "Potter" girls. Your Mom was such a great person and raised great girls also. Know you will miss her, but you have so many great memories to carry with you the rest of your lives. Life is like a book, so many good chapters that make you so glad that you got to be a part of it. All my sympathy to all of you and your families.

Dale and I met Pic shortly after moving to Stevensville. Following that meeting we spent many, many years enjoying meeting her and having a nice visit at every garage sale we could find! We both enjoyed the treasure hunt, for sure. Pic was so gracious to give Lorraine a silver and glass bowl that came from the home that we purchased for Louis and Lorraine when they moved to Stevi. Also, to this day we enjoy a rug that I had Pic make for us which has to be 20+ years old! Her journey leaves so many good memories. Our thoughts and prayers are sent to all the family.
