Celebrating the life of Mildred "Mim" Burleson Banks
Thank you for signing Mildred "Mim" Burleson Banks's Guestbook
Although I didn't know Mrs. Banks personally, she must have been a wonderful person to have helped rear such amazing children. I remember the Banks "clan" fondly from their time at NBHS. Although I was unable to offer my support in person this past weekend, know that I will keep your family in my prayers.

We are very sorry for your loss. Just a few years ago your mom let us go through her album and choose pics of the three of us that she had taken when she was about 19. I remember many good times; one when we girls wanted mom to take us to a football game at the high school , dad didn't want us to go and your mom drove up and pleaded for mom to take her car and go on to the game. We did not get to go. Your mom (a wonderful cook) always had something delicious to eat. Roy and Pat Carter
