To the Editor:

We offer a heartfelt thank you to all who were at our side at the time of the passing of Ruth F. Garner.

The Villages of Potsdam and Norwood staff, Potsdam Volunteer Fire Department, Potsdam Police Department, the Potsdam Volunteer Rescue Squad, Canton-Potsdam Hospital, St. Mary’s Parish, Sergi’s Restaurant, Garner Funeral Home, Doctor David Ouyang and Theresa Dumont, can and so many others, were outstanding in their service to our family. We remain indebted to them forever.

We are truly grateful for each of your expressions of sympathy and support. We are overwhelmed and made stronger by your stories of the impact our mother had on your lives. She loved serving Potsdam as mayor, trustee and citizen. Please know that she loved and cherished each and every one of you.

The Garner Family
