Ms. Harriet:
I know how difficult it is to lose a mother, but to lose both of your parents in less than a year I'm sure is extremely difficult. I send you my heartfelt sympathy at this time.

Harriet and family, so sorry to hear about your Mom passing away. I am sure you remember our times at South Carolina National and know that I am still in banking. I am at First Citizens Bank and have a few more years until retirement. I have three grandchildren and love every minute I spend with them. My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family.
