Nancy & family,
Many years ago, I had the privilege to have Cubby as a customer at what was then Franklin Bank. He was one of the kindest, friendliest people I've ever had the chance to know. I have thought of him often over the years which led to my google search today and I am heartbroken to learn of his passing. I don't know that you will ever see this, but I wanted to tell you that even 10 years since I last saw him, I remember him so fondly. He was an incredible man and I'm sure he is missed greatly by his family. I am so deeply sorry for your loss.
