From the moment I spoke to Mr Ron, He treated me as if he knew me for long and one of is own. He invited me to Kansas City and introduced me to Mrs Huda and other business people I wanted to speak with. Picked me from my hotel, drove me around, introduced me to more people, treated me with lanch and finally dropped me at the airport. Since then, we at least speak on weekly bases. A very kind, caring, and respectful human being. My deepest condolence to Mrs Huda and the entire family

I did not know Mr. McDonald long, but often it did feel like I had. He came by the bank from time to time. Each time I felt closer to him than before. His words were consistently kind, and caring. I admired most his compassion and care for his friends and family. He certainly made me feel like family. Mr. McDonald surely made a tremendous impact in my life. He taught me many lessons, and not a single one will i soon forget. I have only a regret that I did not, and often could not see him more. Mr. McDonald was one of the most respectable men I have ever met. In short, I am so very thankful for having had the pleasure of knowing him. To Huda who i shared the pleasure of meeting, and to his friends and family, I am so very sorry for your loss.
