    Ralph, Kevin and Brian, I am so sorry to hear that your wife and mother Teresa has passed away. Even though I have not seen her in years I have thought about her often. We had a great time working together at Carolina Savings Bank. Teresa was a gem. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    My deepest sympathies. Psalms 94:19 reminds us (When anxieties overwhelmed me, you comforted and soothed me). Hoping this brings comfort during this difficult time.
