Perspective - May 18, 2007


asked at the Bank of the West's 10th anniversary party on Diablo Road

What is the one thing in life you want to accomplish before you die?

Before I die, besides wanting to become a grandmother, I want to make a difference in someone's life. I'm thinking of Africa. It's not about me anymore. I want to do missionary work in Africa. It's what I'll do. When I'm not working anymore, I'll get to pick and choose what I want to do.

Jill O'Callaghan

bank vice president

Honestly, I think I'm blessed. I'm doing a lot of them. I'm comfortable. I'm in a good spot. I've opened bank branches. I enjoy banking. I was married for 27 years, and my parents got to see me grow up. Life has been good to me.

Larry A. Duson

assistant bank vice- I die is I want to get my whole family together - my boys, my sisters, my parents - while we are still healthy and travel to Italy. I want to experience the country where our family originated. There's something inside me that draws me back to that country. People are friendly there. It's a more of a feeling than something tangible.

Don Canario

senior bank vice-president

I want to see my kids grow up as adults. I don't know if I'm living for them. You want your kids to become good adults. I want to compete in another iron man triathlon.

I have to just be happy and enjoy the time I have with my family. And I hope to have a family of my own because I feel family is the most important.
