May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow. I have been retired for some time, but Miss Barbara and Bob were favorites of mine at Colonial Bank for many years. She offered the story about keeping her "Love" name and Bob taught me how to say the name of their address. "PEE-roo", he would say. Such fine people are surely resting in the sweet arms of Jesus.
