Philly Fire Engine 33 is helping the 10-year-old remember his father & honor his legacy with a unique collection effort.
These Christmas ornaments are precious indeed, but nowhere near as irreplaceable as the face that they frame.“It’s been weird not having him around,” said Evan Potter.
Evan’s father, Michael, died suddenly in January of 2016. He was a marine corps veteran & a proud Philadelphia firefighter.
For the holidays this year, Evan's wish is simple, to fill up his board of fire company patches, to collect them just like his dad did.
“If we would go on vacation somewhere, he [Michael] always visited the fire station and got a patch or a tee shirt & he gave one from Philly,” said Amanda Potter, Evan’s mother.
