Amy Potter & family - February 24, 2023

Sending our love to the extended Potter family. I have such lovely memories of chatting with Aunt Pat at different family functions. She was so loving and warm.

John & Vanessa McCarney - February 24, 2023

Dear Jane and family We want to take you back a few years when we first met your mom. Actually it was many years ago. Well if we are truthful it was more years ago than we want to admit. We walked into the manse and got a huge hug attached to the biggest smile that you can imagine. And every time we saw her that smile never diminished. Over the years Mrs Potter became Pat because she wasn’t just your mom she became a friend. We watched the joy in her eyes as she talked about her kids. And how that joy turned to elation as each of her grandkids was born. We know that the last several years have been hard on both Pat and her family. It’s important to remember all those years before Pat’s health started to fade. Because remembering those years will always put a smile on your face. It will certainly put a smile on our faces. R.I.P. Pat!

Dorothy Rutherford - February 23, 2023

My condolences to all the Potter family. I have many pleasant memories of your Mom and Dad when they were in Colborne. I remember when they had a garden at our place for a few years. We had many enjoyable visits with a glass of lemonade on the deck after they were finished in the garden Also Alan, remember you helping us one summer on the farm. Pat was such a kind person to all she knew and will be missed.Thinking of you on Sat as not sure I will be able to be with you..Kindest regards to all.

Hi to the Potter Family, It was with deep sadness that we received word of Pat's passing. We have very fond memories of times together with your Mom & Dad and all of you. We regret that Molly's broken hip, which is on the slow road to recovery, doesn't permit us to be with you on Saturday. We will be with you in spirit. Kindest regards to all. Love, Molly & Ted
