Alexis Brianna “Alex” Holland, 20, and her boyfriend, Hank Potmesil, 21, died Sunday morning, January 7, 2018 as the result of a single car motor vehicle accident on Hwy 6 south of Nettleton. Alex was born in Amory on January 15, 1997 to Brian J. Holland and Brandie Tom Holland. She lived her whole life in Nettleton. Alex was a vivacious young lady who loved life, loved her family and was a mother hen to her siblings, Blaze and Allison. She loved big get-togethers with family and friends and cherished and was devoted to her boyfriend, Hank. Alex was the glue that held her family together. Her quick wit and contagious laughter are legendary and she was beautiful inside and out. She loved animals especially her dog, Leo. Alex was outspoken, independent and did not mind speaking her opinion. She enjoyed reading her Bible and professed a deep love of God. She will be missed by all who were beneficiaries of her generous spirit, her devoted smile and the magnetism of her wonderful personality.

Stan Blaylock officiating. A joint private burial will follow in Jones Chapel Cemetery. Holland Funeral Directors-Tupelo and Otts Funeral Home-Sulligent, Ala. are assisting the families.

Please accept my sincere condolences for your great loss. I have found much comfort in the account about the young girl and Jesus at Mark 5:41, 42 and the account of Lazarus at John 11:32-44 during my own time of grief. I look forward to seeing my loved ones again in the resurrection. May you find comfort in the inspired scriptures and in your fond memories of your loved one. (Acts 24:15)
