Loren, Steve and Allen I was saddened to learn of your soul mate and mothers passing. I do have fond memories of Carol coming into the bank to conduct the daily business. The account was always in perfect order because she was so meticulous with the familys resources. While subsequent generations are now very adequately overseeing the successful business she helped found, and will conduct the business matters in their own ways, Carol established and created a great foundation. She will be missed. I will be praying in the coming days for your family.
