Memories Timeline


  1. Banks Family, Banks was probaly the oldest member of the West Asheville Presbyterian Church which was our home church until moving to Charlotte in 1962. We remember Banks and M. S. and his Mother from our many years there. Regardless of age, health or any other concern we are never ready to lose our loved ones. The only comfort has to come from our Faith in the Sovereignty of God and the manifested concern of caring friends. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Zunita and Joe Clark

  2. Banks’ Family,
