  1. Lu was a wonderful and loving lady, she taught me so many things, she was a great mom,great cook and a wonderful seamstress and made beautiful quilts, her love for the Lord makes me smile and now I know she is smiling big being with Merton and Aunt Lucille once again, Rest in Peace Lu, you will be missed.

  2. I send you my deep sympathy as I have read in the newspaper of your mother’s death. She was such a vital person when she and your father came to Pueblo and joined FUMC’s Co-op Sunday Schcool Class. We were glad to have them with us and taking part. May you have good memories! She was a lovely lady.

  3. Dear Sam, Giles, Brent & David
    We are praying for you and your families. I wish I could be there with you at Aunt Lu’s memorial. I have so many great memories of summer visits with all of you at the farm.
    I have your Mom’s laugh filed away in my head along with the way she would say, “Oh, Mert”. There was always lots of laughter when the Banks girls got together.
    Your Mom was a special lady and I’m proud and blessed that I got to call her my Aunt.
    Love, Your cousin, Martha

  4. Sorry to hear about your Mother. I remember your parents from your Isabel, KS days. Good memories of all you boys. We had some good times.

  5. Giles, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. Bruce
