God's timing is perfect when he brings people into your life that He knows will provide influence, help, and the spiritual and moral encouragement you will need at that point in your life. Hellas was one of these people in mine, my wife's (Lita) and my children's (Beth, Melissa, Laura and Mathew) lives. She was an employee that became a friend and much more to us. We can never get together without talking about something she said or did. She gave more to our family than we could ever repay or give back to her. When she retired after our business was sold, the time and distance that separated us had no affect on the relationship and love that we shared. We could get together anytime and pick up right were we left off. Today one of God's special angels has rejoined him in heaven and made that day He will call all of us home for one grand reunion look more enticing. Godspeed Hellas we will always love you, Clayton, Lita, and family.

I met Ms Potter while working at the Ruston Housing Authority. What a joy she was. The personality, humor, love for the Lord and her family was infectious. Always enjoyed visiting with her. Visited with her at the nursing home, also. My life has been richer just having known her. She lived a long, good life and now she is with her Lord. May the Lord bless and comfort the family in this time of great loss.
