To the Banks Family:

Our deepest condolences to the family during this difficult time. We will keep you in our prayers. "Blessed are those who mourn; for they will be comforted".

Regina, James Jr (Bunkey), Rhonda and Terrance McGee

I will missed you. Rest in Peace.

"MR. CUB" One shared his talent with the world...THANK YOU...Deepest Sympathy

May God comfort you at this difficult time.Psalms147:3"He heals the brokenhearted;He binds up their wounds.

Hope you are watching over the Cubs for the wild card game and rooting with Ron Santo!

My sincere condolences to the family of Ernie Banks and all who knew and loved him. His positive attitude was definitely encouraging to others. And now in this time of grief, may those he left behind be encouraged by the thought of seeing him again and being able to spend time with him maybe having a conversation or even a game of catch on the paradise earth that God promises for future. Psalms 37: 10, 11, 22, 29

It's amazing that Ernie was able to hit tons of home runs despite being tall and skinny. It's always sad to see sports players die. (John 5:25)

With deepest sympathy on the loss of your loved one. May it comfort you to know that he will return to the days of his youthful vigor as promised at Job 33:25

John 11:33 says: "When Jesus saw her weeping and the Jews who had come with her weeping and groaning, he groaned within himself and became troubled." Jesus expressed tears when his friend Lazarus died, he knows how it feels to lose a dead loved one and he understands what you and your family are experiencing. May this bring you and your family comfort in this time of need. cjp (fla.)
