Jan 8, 2018:
Please let me use this occasion to thank Irma Comer for lovingly publishing the WACHOVIA OLD GANG newsletter for all these many years. I recently asked Irma about the cost of maintaining the Web Site. She currently is funding it out of her own pocket. The cost is 1 year $200, 3 years $450, 5 years $600, and
10 years $1,000. Let me urge you to join me and send a small check to Irma Comer, 140 Roswell Drive, Kernersville NC 27284. Thanks.

God's richest blessings,
Tom Charping
