We have known the Banks/Payton family our whole life. Our parents, Eddie and Georgia Singleton, were best friends with Herbert, Nate Jr., and Beverly's parents back in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. May God bless this family and comfort them. Peace to all and love from our family to yours.

My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Herb was a thoughtful, caring person who always tried to help everyone he interacted with. He stepped up many times when no one else would and did what needed to be done.
He will be greatly missed,
Jim Humphrey

Sherry, Sheryl, Monica and all of the family and friends of Herbert, you have my deepest heartfelt sympathy. Take comfort in knowing that God do not make any mistakes. Herbert service here was finished and God gave him to us for a little while and now he must transition to his heavenly home. May God continue to comfort you in your time of sorrow.
