"He was loving and real as a husband, a son, a brother, a friend, or a stranger. He would listen, make time for his loved ones, and do his best to make everyone laugh and feel okay. He was our rock and would reassure his loved ones whenever they needed it." Reflecting on Ben Potter's legacy, Nathalie highlighted the significance of his YouTube channel, calling it "one of his greatest accomplishments." She expressed a strong desire to continue his work, promising that she and Potter's team will keep the channel active to honor his memory.
