In the blink of an eye life as Cassie knew it was over. At a young age she never expected to bury a husband who had given his life serving his country. But here she was. What was she going to do? How would she survive with Justin, after all he was the love of her life?

At the service she meets Manny, who had served with Justin and had promised to take care of her if anything ever happened to him. Over time the two fall in love and both get on with their lives. Marriage, a family and great happiness. Who would have thought a phone call would change everything they came to know. Justin is still ALIVE after more than 20 years. Where will Cassie’s heart lead her?

Sometimes in life it takes losing someone or the thought of losing them to realize where your heart belongs.

My Ordeal with the bank

Hi Everyone, I had to share my wonderful experience with my bank today. Ok not so much wonderful LOL

So it all starts this morning when I just randomly decide to check my online banking. I notice that my deposit that I dropped in the night box Monday night was not showing up.I thought that was odd with this being Friday.

I call up the bank and ask them. They say nothing is showing and I love this part LOL Are you sure you came here and made the deposit.

Oh of course that must be the problem. Instead I must have went to wal-mart or Burger King and gave them my deposit LOL So I very nicely say yes I went there and drove up in front and told them what I drove and where I parked the car.

The lady asks me "Are you sure you didn't leave it in your purse?"

HMMM yes that's what I did. I drove all the way to the bank. 10 minutes from my house. Pulled up in front of the bank and then decided oh you know what I'll just leave the deposit in my purse and go on back home. Yes that must be what happened. LOL

So She tells me that she will review the bank video camera and call me back.

 I said great. Ok so you will see me on the camera that I was yes in fact there. Then what? Do I get my deposit counted then?

She says well no. That will just prove you were here. I guarantee that the deposit is not in our bank. We have no record of it anywhere.

So now I am really getting angry but again and only answering my answers nice and calmly since they are the ones that have control of my lost money LOL. I tell the lady ok just give my husband a call back at his number with what you find out because by now I've had it up to my neck with dealing with this lady.

So a couple of hours go by and the bank manager calls my husband up and says "I'm very sorry about this mix up. We looked at the video and your wife drove the car that she said, parked where she said, and we watched her drop the envelope in the box. We went back trhough our envelopes for that day and found hers stuck to the back of another deposit envelope." They plan to make my deposit today.

So they flat out called me crazy. I didn't actually make a deposit and I must have just left it in my purse or dropped it. Also told me that they were 100% sure it was no where in the bank. Then call me back and tell me all is right in the world. They found it. Oh and that they are sorry.

So topic question: Would you stay with this bank over one mistak in the 5 years I've banked with them or would you run as fast and as far as you can away from them and bank somewhere else?
