The staff at our local bank, will forever miss him. He was always waiting for us to open up, usually our very first customer. He always had a funny quip or would say something to make us laugh. I have told my co workers that I miss seeing him in the mornings. He would always tell us about what he was up to with his family. Will miss his stories.
