Condolences

My heart felt condolences to Bev and the family. funny story. I meet Bev and Joe at Firstbank. He said I shorted him 5.00. I didn't think I had but I gave him the money anyway. At the end of the day my drawer was 5.00 short. 🙃 He always teased me about that. Are you sure my 5.00 is in there? I would say yes Joe and would just smile. I had many conversations with him and Bev. They moved to live with their son down state. I missed seeing them. They always made my day when they came in. I think about them all the time. My prayers go out to Bev. ❤️ (Miss you Bev. ) And her family. Joe will be missed but he is in a much better place. Living, laughing and I'm sure he is giving someone else a hard time about 5.00 😉
