Heather Potts Funeral Expenses

Heather left the house in her truck like any normal day on 1/2/17 with the intent to return home. Unfortunately instead the knock on the door that day that my aunt and uncle received was the sheriff delivering every parents worse nightmare. Heather had been involved in a head on collision and didn't survive the accident. As you can imagine this news came as a disbelief and an enormous amount of pain as Heather had just turned 30 years old 2 days prior to the accident and was leaving behind a 6 yr old son, named Lane. Not only has this left a hole in the family's heart, but it has also left them an immense responsibility of telling her son he will never see his mommy again. Those who knew Heather knew she was full of life and had a heart as big as Texas and never ever took NO for an answer!! She was funny with a little bit country, a girly girl and rebel all rolled into one. She has always been a daddy's girl and liked to be hands on even if it meant getting dirty. She liked to work on her truck, hunt and fish! She loved gardening and even had one of her own and loved junkyard art ! She was also quite crafty and made her own plaque and named herself "The Perfect Storm". If you ever rode with her, you know that you had to listen to her music and rarely did she finish a full song. She exuded confidence and beauty and will be deeply missed by all who knew her. Her son Lane loves playing with toy guns, riding bikes arcades and fishing with his dad. He is a very loving, caring and sensitive young boy who is really going to miss going to carnivals and water parks with his mommy . At this time we are asking for prayers for her parents and son and all the rest of her family and friends to be able to process this tragic accident that took one of the most spirited woman you will ever know. Any help is greatly appreciated, as the family had no emotional or financial preparation for the loss of Heather , we are asking any who are willing and able to donate to help the family cover the funeral expenses. We and the entire Potts family, would be so thankful for anything you can help with.

Please share these fundraising efforts with anyone who might be able help. Thank you for your time, donations and all of your prayers for the Potts family during this incredibly difficult time. A life taken too soon. Thanks and god bless you!
