  5. Nicole and The Potter Family,

    I express my deepest sympathies to all of you. The loss which occurs when a family member dies is unfathomably painful. I am grateful to have had the pleasure of knowing your father. He was a mountain of a man who I had deep respect for. He made me laugh, he made me think and we once had a bit of cheeky fun with Nicole while in each others company. I again express my sympathies for your loss and I shall always fondly hold onto these memories which I am so fortunate enough to have.

    Sincerely,

    Rory O’Dwyer

  8. Family Potter,

    I was so shocked to find out Kevin has passed away. I worked with him a few years ago and he was the kind of guy you thought would live forever. My deepest condolences to all of you. What I remember most about Kevin was how much he talked about his family with such pride and love. As big and tough as he was he was such a teddy bear and I knew you all had him wrapped around yours fingers! He sure brought lots of life to the office! Cherish your memories, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Anne Brinovac

  13. Steve & Jenny Richardson :

    Hi Alison, Nicole, Steph & Ben, we only heard about Kevin’s passing as we were going away last week, so this is the first opportunity to offer our sympathy and best wishes to you all at this sad and difficult time. Our first memory of Kevin is when you all arrived at our house about 12 years ago fresh from Nottingham Castle, and he and I sat up half the night chatting as if we were old friends. The next was when we came to stay with you all in Calgary and he served Moose burgers off the BBQ and taught me how to season and cook spare ribs to perfection. A big man in so many ways, we are thinking of you and him, love from (cousin) Steve & Jenny and family.
