    Brad and girls, I am so sorry to hear of Marlyn's passing. She was one of the bravest fighters I know. I used to love when Mom, Aunt Rose, and Aunt Helen would sit at the kitchen table and talk about the early days of when the Potts love affair began ❤ and the shanigans that would ensue, to the beautiful marriage and family y'all built. She was always a cousin I looked up too. I know she will be tremendously missed by many. Brad, you are the best! Cancer f#cking sucks! And, losing a mom and best friend changes everything, forever.. Much love to all, Lisa (Arlene and Chuck's oldest daughter)
