A Potter (Biz), killed in action in France, September 4th, 1916 (previously reported missing). How hard it is to part with him I held on earth so dear. The heart no greater trial knows, No sorrow more severe. — Inserted by his sincere friend, Violet. POTTER.— In loving memory of our dear sons and brothers, Biz, Wilf, and Hurtle Potter, who were killed in action in France on September 3, 1916. 'Faithful unto death.'— Inserted by their loving parents, sisters, and brothers. POTTER.— In loving memory of Privates Biss, Wilf, and Hurtle Potter, killed in action somewhere in France, September 3, 1916. Just one sad year has now gone past, Since that great sorrow fell, Yet in our hearts we mourn the loss Of them we knew so well. We miss them, yes, we miss them, More than words can ever say; In the prime of life God claimed them, In the joy of their manhood days. None knew them but to love them, None mentioned their names but in praise. Inserted by their loving uncle and aunt and cousins, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Miller and family, 'Fernleigh.'
