Mr. Foust was one of my favorite customers. When he drove up to the Commercial Lane he always had a smile on his face!
He would say, how is my favorite Banker today!
The community has lost a wonderful and caring person and Heaven has gained an Angel.
Please accept my Heart felt condolences during this difficult time.
