Wonderful memories at San Angelo National Bank and the Country Club. Both of your parents were loved and such treasures in our community. Lora Lee was SOOOOOOOO helpful to me when my grandfather died--J.C. Sturges. I had many questions.....why so much money in a checking account???? Lora Lee told me that he was his own boss and NO ONE was gonna tell him what to do with his money. Made sense to me....except when Central National Bank went under.....I moved some money around. I thought it was the end of the world. Lora Lee was a great backbone in that bank!!!! Thoughts are with you all. Wonderful team.....
