From: Michele Quinn Mar 13 2019 10:01PM Angie was one of the first teacher friends I made after graduating from college and taking my first teaching job. We remained friends throughout the years and I always enjoyed hearing her kids play at her parents house after we bought a house just down from them. The world lost a great person, but may she and Luke be reunited now. Prayers to both her parents and the entire Potter family. From: Rhonda Davis Mar 13 2019 10:42PM I have known this beautiful lady all my life. She was such an angel sent from up above. She always had a smile on her face and she was just an absolute blessing. I know she will be deeply missed. I pray that the good Lord will wrap his loving arms around those children tonight and always. I pray for her parent's as they are they are going thru every parent's worst nightmare. Please lord be with the entire family and please give them a sense of peace and let them know that you are with them every step of the way.
Love you all.

Our family always held a special place for Luke and Angie. I will always remember the last time I saw Angie with the kids- it was when she was taking them Trick or Treating this past year. She was laughing with them as she and the kids came to the door. She always had a smile and a laugh and this is the way I want to remember her. God bless the children and family and knowing she is resting peacefully with Luke gives me some condolence.
