10/29/2017Bill Grimes - State Farm Insurance Agent
Bill Grimes has been a friend of my late husband's family for many years as they grew up together and his family has been present for weddings and funerals, but not there or anywhere to be found when my husband died at age 64. My husband's family contacted him within minutes of his death, and I was told the life insurance policy that had been me as beneficiary for over 18 years of marriage was being challenged by my husband's grown son (my husband left another smaller policy for son). My policy should have been honored but was not. My step son sued me for possession of my husband's body and threatened to have me arrested if I showed up at the funeral. Speechless, I filed suit in federal court for the life insurance policy with me as beneficiary to be paid. In the meantime I had a graveside service. I hired a dove release with thoughts of a soul not being something to fight over "possession of" while allowing my step son to do the funeral contrary to my husband's wishes, including not having a police escort to show respect, not having a closed casket so the grandkids could see their grandfather. My husband was very upset for not being included in their lives - and last Father's Day before his death, very angry for not getting a call. The florist called me to say the stepson called to pay for the casket flower arrangement that I had ordered and, since he was paying (thanks to connections to Bill Crimes), the florist apologized to me that he was having to put the stepson's name on the flowers I ordered. After over a year in federal court, just to go on with my life, I settled the case in my favor, but with attorney fees and funds not available when I need "State Farm - the good neighbor". State Farm was not there. Bill Grimes should have been sued for professional malpractice except I was too much in shock to put myself through that at the time. He put his greedy family connections before contract law regarding the life insurance, and did not even offer condolences.

I came across so many unprofessional insurance Agents who do not return calls or emails, and when they do it takes them days to reply. They have totally different approach to business then in California, no one in hurry, everyone has time. And then I found Kim King at River Tree Insurance Services, Inc.
