Babcock Neighborhood School is one very special place. It is a wonderful nurturing, learning environment for the students. Their timing was perfect for an afternoon visit to their campus yesterday. I was humbled to learn that they planted 17 plants to honor the lives taken in Parkland, Florida last week.
Thank you to everyone for this very special visit.

Time for Ice Cream

Thank you to this family from Boston for introducing me to their daughters. Sophia has down syndrome and couldn’t wait to tell me that she was going to go get a chocolate ice cream cone and her sister was going to get a chocolate chip ice cream cone. Beautiful angels. May God bless this family.


Very Kind People

Thursday, February 22nd, 2018


Today was a very big day visiting FCB branches in these three communities: Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte, and Englewood. I rode the Kindness Bicycle in each one of these communities connecting with residents and vacationers. I found big support for this Gratitude and Kindness Tour from everyone today. Thank you FCB employees for sharing your stories of kindness with me.
