Sincere sympathy to the family. Please know Maxine was one special lady. I enjoyed her company at the Plaza and also at the Manor, she had her one problems but always took time to think of others

Denise and family, You know how much your Mom and Dad both meant to me, helping them with their banking needs for almost 25 years. It really tickled me when your Dad got ill and he sent Maxine to the bank, just telling her to go to Jo and she would know what to do. She waited patiently waiting for me to get my customer taken care of so I could do their deposit as Ed always wanted it. I know you will miss your loved ones as well as many other people. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Sincere Sympathy sent you way.

Condolences to the Purinton family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your whole family. Psalms 147:3 says God, "heals the broken hearted, and binds up their wounds." May God bring you comfort and peace.
