I had the privilege of meeting Willie Potter when I worked at Liberty National Insurance Company approx 20 years ago. I truly am saddened by his passing but knowing that he is in the loving arms of Jesus brings a smile to my face and a warmth into my heart. Thank you for your friendship and I pray for God's peace to Willies family and friends.
