Dear Jim Banks Family - I was sad to learn of the death of your husband and father. I have wonderful memories of Jim and you when you lived in the Richmond area and attended the Patterson Ave SDA Church...memories of Jim's wisdom,unique sense of humor, strong character and beliefs in those things that were really important..a wonderful legacy he leaves. And the great times at Blue Ridge Youth Camp, singing in the Church choir and his dedication to the Pathfinders. I think of Jim and your family often and will remember you in my prayers.
With all my love and sympathy,

I worked with Jim and found him to be a down to earth person with great morals. He always was very polite and treated everyone with respect.
