My local bank has been by my side through the tough times (separation and eventual divorce) even though the accountant at the time explained that my company would not have the same value without my ex at the helm and that the bank will become anxious. Instead, they supported and encouraged me. They helped me through the PPP process and they go the extra mile when I negotiate interest rates, call with questions, etc.
