Vicki, Bobby and Jan…where do I begin…Bob was the most wonderful boss I have had in my banking career. He was always looking out for his employees and would stand up for them. He was a true Gentleman…Father figure to me…always giving advice and teaching in a way that never made one feel inferior. I sure will miss talking to him and catching up on our families together…I pray for your comfort during this time and the days ahead as your life adjusts without him. I can truly say that I am so glad and fortunate that my path crossed with his.
