Debbie you and your family are in my prayers. Your father was such a wonderful man and each time that he and your mother would come into the bank I really enjoyed taking time to speak with them. They shared a true and rare love that is timeless. I know he is in heaven now with Jesus and that gives us comfort, but I'm sure you and your family miss him so. I'm so glad that I had the privilege of knowing him!
