Janelle, Carole Sue and Melissa--my thoughts and prayers are with you all. Your Mom was a wonderful lady and lived life to the fullest. She was so tolerant of all the kids in the really old neighborhood when we lived across the street from y'all in Pine Bluff.
Through the years she was one of the good fun Moms. God be with you during this time.

Growing up around Grandmaw Potter’s house I got to know “Aunt Mrs Wester” pretty well. Summer afternoons she would come over and bring fudge popsicles or pieces of candy to fill my pockets. I always felt so special when Grandmaw would let me come over on Golden Girls night and let me watch it with them. Aunt Mrs Wester always held a very special place in my heart and always will! 💜
