Mar 18.19 from Janet and Steve Potter and family:
Just found out Sunday that LouAnn passed away. We all have very fond memories of her and your family. She was the first person to ever cut Brynn's fingernails when she was a new baby. Brandon enjoyed many times with Donny and Eddie and really liked LouAnn. Janet remembers growing up in Pike and spending lots of time at Alvis and Velma's house with all of you. Sandy I'm sorry I haven't gotten to see you in a long time. We are thinking of all of you at this time. Gary, she really loved you. She used to talk about all the wonderful meals you had together. Let us know if there's anything we can do or if you want to talk. Stop by anytime. Our prayers, sympathy and love are with all of you.


Sincerely,
Janet, Steve, Brandon, and Brynn
