    Mrs Sarah you know we have you and your family in our prayers at this time. Bob and I loved Bro John and always looked forward to seeing the two of you. He was our loving customer at the bank and we all loved getting him as a customer. He was such a wonderful Christian example in the business place as well at church and the community. I always felt honored to have our long talks at the bank, sometimes on banking but mostly on our churches and the Lord’s work. Thank you for allowing us to be a small part of Bro. John’s life. Bob and Rebecca Vanderpool
