Note: Many of us know Ray and Pat Potts, an amazing couple together and as individuals. They have contributed and continue to contribute so much to Oklahoma City and Oklahoma. In tribute to both, we are adding a photo and a quote we found. Kudos to Ray & Pat!
"Married: June 18, 1955. 'Besides the love of a lifetime, we've been best friends, and I think that's part of what makes it work,' she said. Children: Steve, Mark, Larry and Paula Anderson; eight grandchildren."
